- Use a classification matrix: A classification matrix allows businesses to categorize and prioritize their inventory based on criteria, such as value, and sales velocity. By identifying high-performing stock items that contribute towards the bottom line, helps planners make informed decisions about stocking levels, replenishment strategies, and how much resources, such as time and money, to allocate to various stock items.
- Monitor and measure supplier performance: Monitoring key supplier metrics such as on-time, in full deliveries, overdue/late orders, open purchase orders and future recommended orders enables businesses to identify areas for improvement, build strong supplier relationships, and mitigate risks associated with underperforming suppliers.
- Manage inventory KPIs with a single dashboard: Visualizing crucial inventory metrics like stock levels, potential stock-outs, stock in excess, stock turns and fill rates in one place empowers businesses to identify issues, make data-driven decisions, and optimize on time and efficiency.
- Enhance forecasting and demand planning: By leveraging historical data, statistical models, and market insights, businesses can generate reliable forecasts. This leads to improved inventory accuracy, reduced stockouts, and increased customer satisfaction.
- Optimize production plans: Optimizing production plans is essential for efficient operations. Businesses can identify bottlenecks and optimize production schedules by analyzing demand fluctuations, lead times, and production capacity. This ensures efficient resource allocation and helps meet customer expectations.
- Align demand and supply decision-making: By integrating data from various sources such as sales, finance and marketing, and gaining comprehensive insights, businesses can make informed decisions about procurement, production, and distribution. This alignment helps optimize inventory levels, minimize stock-outs and excess inventory, and improve operational efficiency and profitability.
