Demand Sensing & Advanced Planning Strategy Day
Led by Neil Ackerman, Senior Director, Global Supply Chain Enterprise Transformation, Johnson & Johnson
Create a demand driven value network through Demand Sensing and Advanced Planning
The FIN Demand Sensing & Advanced Planning Strategy Day helps senior Supply Chain and Manufacturing Executives understand how they can implement Demand Sensing and Advanced Planning to dramatically improve current levels of forecasting by employing a set of mathematical techniques and AI to analyze real time daily demand information. By unlocking this intelligence attendees will be able to see how Demand sensing can revolutionize 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. Only 40 attendees will be able to attend. Typical attendees will be Supply Chain Directors, Manufacturing Directors , 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 Transformational planning programmes, and collaborate with peers to create a personal action plan to move your project 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.
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 servitization
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 organizations:- there are not many examples, case studies to support their projects.
