The Consequences Of Not Having
INVENTORY ANALYTICS

Reactive Decision Making

Without the resources to analyze inventory ineffective decisions will be made

Decreased Productivity

Employees continue firefighting trying to make sense of myriads of date

Cash Flow Pressure

Cash tied up in excess inventory could be invested elsewhere

Sales Are Lost

Lower product availability will mean less revenue

Cost Go Up

Inventory not required will push up total supply chain costs

Inventory Planning Assessment Approach

1. PLANNING

The inventory planning process, systems and controls are assessed relating to the S&OP process, demand planning, supply planning, replenishment and inventory policy across all supply chains.

2. OPERATIONS

The business operations including production, warehousing, transport and other logistics processes need to be understood and assessed in terms of planning integration and systems as well as the S&OP process

3. SYSTEMS

All systems including ERP, WMS, Advanced Inventory Planning, Demand Forecasting, DRP, etc. will be reviewed and relevant data sourced for the assessment.

NETWORK STOCK VISIBILITY

S&OP Process

Demand and supply of inventory will be assessed and optimised across all supply chains

Replenishment will be assessed from a customer service versus cost optimisation point 

Operations & logistics across the supply chain will be reviewed as well as info visibility across the network

The Nebula Inventory Planning Assessment is a milestone opportunity for any organisation wishing to implement Inventory Management best practices to enable the optimal product availability across their network.
The Nebula team consists of leading Inventory Optimisation practitioners and software and the inventory planning assessment will serve to empower the client’s team to optimise their inventory through advanced inventory management practices and improved systems usage.
The 4 Supply Chain tensions (maximize customer service, minimize operating cost, optimize asset utilization, minimise working capital) are all key objectives for a typical organisation and Nebula utilizes an optimization model that maximises profit while taking into account all the decision variables, constraints and parameters (constants).
