Global Production planning with network inventory balancing and Improved Visibility Leveraging IBP

Global Production planning with network inventory balancing and Improved Visibility Leveraging IBP

Webinar - Thursday May 13 at 11 AM ET

One of the key supply chain challenges for food & beverages companies is the limited shelf life of their products. The perishable nature of their products makes the need for inventory optimization much more prominent since unlike other industries, excess inventory means food & beverages companies incur costs beyond just the holding cost of inventory. The need to balance fill rate with working capital objectives becomes much more prominent. Supply chain leaders in these industries are frequently grappling with key questions like:

  • How to generate production plans based on global supply/demand netting?
  • What can be done to increasing planner adoption and decreasing false demand?
  • Can we maintain visibility to long term Distribution Requirements Plan (DRP)?
  • Is there a way to generate capacity plan on a simulated version to simulate multiple scenarios?
  • How do we get intra-campus inventory and in-transit inventory visibility for accurate supply planning?
  • How to get signals to deploy the correct available supply within network?

This webinar will provide supply chain leaders in food & beverages industry insights that they will be able to leverage in transforming their supply chain planning processes, while optimizing inventory levels. The webinar leverages a real-life case study of Tyson foods, one of the world’s largest food companies and a recognized leader in protein.
