Emerging Topics

Adapt or Die – The Search for Flow and Relevant Information – The Role of Forecasting

Many of today's detailed planning and scheduling systems are rooted in assumptions and practices from 40 years ago. "Best practices" are no longer best; they are simply antiquated and in many cases, inappropriate. Optimizing these inappropriate rules through today’s powerful ERP systems is fraught with risk. Staying competitive in the face of increasingly complex and volatile supply chains requires a fundamentally different approach: either adapt or die. This presentation will describe the simple steps for the required shift from convention to the emerging principles of demand-driven operational systems, including the role of forecasting in this new world.

Speaker: Carol Ptak, CPIM-F, CIRM, Demand Driven Thought Leader, Demand Driven Institute
