Improve Demand Forecasting

As important as forecasting demand as effectively as possible is - for sizing and adjusting the Supply Chain resources (capacities and components/materials) with the right anticipation, what matters most is to supply the planner or procurement agent not only with a forecast - which is no more than an average - but also with the forecasting uncertainty. This makes a considerable impact on how the Supply Chain performs (customer service, defect costs, working capital, obsolescence).
