The Covid-19 pandemic has put supply chains under pressure. From Fortune 500 companies to SMEs, through all kinds of industries, the impact on operations and planning activities was and remains real.

Stop drowning in the crisis: Four effective measures to help you surf the waves

Recently, in the first part of my blog article series “Supply Chain Risk Management – far more than just a way out of the current crisis“, I highlighted the importance of linking the two disciplines of Risk Management and Supply Chain Management when managing crises.

Demand volatility poses enormous challenges for suppliers. A new data-driven solution helps to increase planning reliability
Demand volatility poses enormous challenges for suppliers. A new data-driven solution helps to increase planning reliability

The coronavirus crisis has revealed a long-standing challenge for suppliers even more clearly: How reliable are the demand forecasts they receive from their customers? High volatility and uncertainties in demand forecasting are not limited to pandemic times. Even in the “normal state”, the originally reported requirements can differ considerably from the materials actually called off. The decisive question is therefore: How can you improve forecasting and thus also achieve a higher level of planning accuracy? Read more
