Demand Planning

Demand Planning refers to the process where businesses predict or estimate future customer demand to ensure that they can provide the right product, in the right quantity, at the right time, and in the right place. This is a crucial component of supply chain management as it helps businesses to optimize their inventory levels, reduce costs, and improve customer satisfaction. The process involves analyzing historical sales data, market and economic trends, and other external factors such as seasonal variations and marketing campaigns, to create accurate forecasts.
