Supply and demand planning is absolutely key in delivering high quality service levels aligned to the customer offer whilst also minimising working capital, storage, handling and obsolescence. SCALA’s supply chain and inventory models combined with real expertise support our clients to identify and understand the optimum levels, to plan how to achieve these and then to support execution.
Our methodologies include S&OP (which you can read about here) which is a process discipline bringing together sales & marketing ambitions, supply capabilities, customer needs and financial goals to balance and create a single, achievable strategy for the company. Our experience ranges from global implementation for a multi-national manufacturer to coaching SMEs in best practice principles.
The scope of our assignments encompasses:
- Demand and supply forecasting
- Procurement policies
- Promotions and sales fluctuations
- Supplier reliability and lead times
- Vendor and co-managed inventory
- Supporting IT systems

Using key Forecasting and Planning insights, SCALA can accurately assess Demand aspects such as time horizons and brackets, key processes (base and event planning, level of forecasting over time periods), your current expected KPIs, and more. This particular whitepaper was for a workshop SCALA held in early 2018, which was met with a high degree of interest and was praised for its efficacy.
