Demand Sensing & Advanced Planning Strategy Day

Create a demand driven value network through Demand Sensing and Advanced Planning

The FIN Demand Sensing & Advanced Planning Strategy Day in collaboration with o9 Solutions helps senior Supply Chain and Manufacturing Executives understand how they can implement Demand Sensing and Advanced Planning technologies to dramatically improve current levels of forecasting by employing a set of mathematical techniques and AI to analyse real time daily demand information. By unlocking this intelligence attendees will be able to see how Demand sensing can revolutionise their end to end supply chain visibility and consumer demand planning.

Who will attend?

The event is designed for Senior Supply Chain and Planning Directors, Manufacturing and Digital Transformation leaders of large global organisations. Only 40 attendees will be able to attend.  Typical attendees will be VPs of Supply Chain or Manufacturing , Chief Digital Officers and Inventory and Planning Executives.

Attendees at DemSense will include:


Unique collaborative format

By joining our fully immersive Demand Sensing & Advanced Planning Strategy Day, you will learn from influential practitioners in our network who have led major Demand Sensing projects, and collaborate with peers to create a personal action plan to move your strategy forward.

Our unique format is designed to maximise practical learning for all attendees by moving away from the conference format to a series of collaborative working sessions with fellow practitioners.

Why now?

Consumer Demand and Political and Economic instability are having a profound effect on Manufacturing and Supply Chain operations, with early adopters of Demand Sensing and Advanced planning benefiting from:

  • End-to-end Supply Chain visibility

  • Increased accuracy in forecasting and reporting

  • Reduced costs and significant efficiency benefits

  • Decreased Inventory levels

  • Higher revenues & improved profit margins

  • Improved customer responsiveness

  • Shorter cash to cash cycle times

  • New business models through servitisation

  • Smarter Procurement Decisions

The challenge of Demand Sensing & Advanced planning

For many, the adoption of Demand Sensing and Advanced planning is a huge challenge. As well as major technology investments, there are huge leadership, cultural and change management issues to tackle. Demand Sensing especially replaces more traditional methodologies of forecasting, as such project leaders are often pioneers in their organisations:- there are not many examples, case studies to support their projects.
