Demand Planning Software
The Right Materials in the Right Place at the Right Time
Vanguard Demand Planning is geared to help manufacturers forecast demand for all resources required in the manufacturing process — raw materials, people, equipment, and finished goods. Our industry-leading forecast engine generates an exceptional demand (or sales) forecast for finished goods. Demand Planning then explodes (or reverse engineers) that back into all required components and resources using a hierarchical, time-dependent Bill Of Materials (BOM).
Demand Planning also automates routine tasks and applies advanced-analytic methods to optimize key drivers affecting your entire demand planning and management process. Web-based workflow design lets you merge sales and inventory data with workforce knowledge of internal and marketplace changes. The results are streamlined supply-chain and fulfillment processes, lower operating costs, and improved customer service and profits.
