Retail Sales Forecast
system manages and computes retail sales forecasts.
These retail sales forecasts are calculated months
in advance and become an essential part of determining
future volume planning levels.
You can build intelligence into the system for determining
your future production capacity. Production volume
plans can be based on past demand for vehicles, while
considering your current inventory levels.
Sales Volume Increase Planning
system allows you to specify plans to increase inventory
levels. Specifying additional inventory over periods
of time allows you to easily and gradually phase in
your increased inventory levels.
1) Allows you to consider local demand which may not
have been reflected in past sales forecasts. 2) Allows
you to steadily control your increases in inventory
to support your growth objectives. 3) Allows you to
support special promotions with increased inventory
Volume Planning Constraint Configurations
volume planning module allows you to specify a number
of planning configuration constraints to control the
behavior of the system. These constraints allow you
to identify to the system factors such as factory
shipment percentages, wholesale percentages, months
supply of vehicles.
1) Allows you to identify the flow of inventory in
the logistical pipeline. If vehicles are held in certain
points of the lifecycle, there could be an uneven
distribution of inventory. You can help level the
flow of inventory throughout the pipeline, while building
months supply to plan for possible factory shutdowns
or new model introductions.
Suggested Volume Planning Orders
system automatically generates a suggested volume
planning order. This order utilizes the retail sales
forecast, increases in sales volume and the many volume
planning configurations. Orders are generated at a
model level, then extrapolated to the model color
Allows you to consistently generate a volume plan
utilizing a consistent, proven order generation algorithm.
Reduces the time and resources necessary to analyze
volume planning data for order generation. Provides
a more accurate volume plan so your inventory levels
support future demand.
