  • With increasing frequency, I have noticed blog posts touting the position that ‘demand planning is dead.’ Why? Often, these posts claim the proliferation of products and distribution channels coupled with the accelerated pace of the supply chain makes it too difficult to create accurate forecasts. Their solution: by sensing and reacting to customer demand at the point of purchase there is no longe...

To complicate matters, supply chains are growing more complex as product proliferation and customer service expectations rise driven in part by the “Amazons” of the world. Increasing complexity due to larger p...

  • As a supply chain professional, we need to consider how actions in one part of the supply chain affect both upstream and downstream operations. This is especially true for those that work in and manage the demand planning process. Sometimes demand planners focus too much on forecast accuracy and miss seeing the forest for the trees. I was guilty of this from time to time when I led a demand-planni...

  • I get a kick reading “prediction” articles both prior to the year start and then again after the year is complete. When it comes to predicting the very dynamic supply chain management industry, those after year reviews can be quite amusing. For even more fun look back 10 or more years to see where we all thought the industry would be. Therefore, it is with a bit of trepidation that I toss my hat i...

I didn’t sleep well the nights leading up to the call. I worried I might have done some...

  • I recently moved to Arizona and traded my lawnmower and snow-shovels for a salt-water pool. I think you might agree this was a very favorable trade.

I know, I ...

  • I generally do not like the shopping experience. I prefer to develop a list of carefully researched products so I can get into and out of a store as fast as possible.

Although I am fully aware of the product proliferation...
