Application Summary

The key to inventory planning is an accurate demand forecast. eCity’s forecasting module captures “true demand” and prepares a forecast. Review your forecast, make adjustments and send to the planner for an optimal schedule of planned supply orders.

“True Demand” excludes non-recurring demand and reflects the demanded product and date (not necessarily the item shipped or issued). Promotional demand is kept separate allowing you to asses the effect of a promotion and adjusts the forecast.

The forecast is prepared by applying a number of easily understand models to the demand and using the model that best fits recent demand. The result is a forecast your inventory planner can understand without requiring the knowledge of complex statistical formulas.

  • Weekly or monthly forecasts
