Distribution Planning and Warehouse Management

In today’s streamlined and highly interconnected supply chains, distribution channels and services now represent core value-added service to an organization’s customers. The objective of this seminar is to detail the strategies and operations activities associated with distribution and warehousing in the extended supply chain.


Forecasting and Sales & Operations Planning


Forecasting is a method by which organizations attempt to provide some element of certainty where there is none. Register for this seminar to learn about situations where accurate forecasting is helpful as well as about some of the dangers of forecasting. Learn how sales forecasting provides demand input to sales and operations planning, a business process that helps organizations to keep demand and supply in balance.

Participate in activities that will help you to realize the benefits of effective sales and operations planning including higher customer service, lower finished goods inventory, greater flexibility, and higher productivity. Because forecasting and sales and operations planning bring together the functional plans from across the organization, this seminar is geared toward functional leaders in sales, marketing, supply chain management, operations, and finance in addition to senior business leaders who are interested in seeing how their organization’s diverse functional plans can be completely integrated and aligned.


Materials Management, Planning and Control


Material Requirements Planning and Enterprise Resource Planning (MRP/ERP) systems provide organizations with powerful capabilities for managing, planning, and controlling their operations. Associated with these planning systems is the ability to manage your inventory more effectively to improve customer service and ensure the integrity of inventory records and bills of material.

Learn how to manage inventories more effectively while driving improvement throughout your supply chain. Participate in activities that will help you to ensure the accuracy of your inventory records and avoid surprises in your year-end financials. Today the impact of purchased materials has a huge impact on your organization’s overall cost structure.
