The service achieves this by forecasting shelf off-take at the SKU/Store/Day level and automatically calculating time-phased 补充 requirements for all participants in the supply network—including retailers, 品牌所有者, 制造商, 和物流供应商.
These time-phased order requirements are based on physical lead times, 目标库存, 并在每个节点上确定服务水平. 此外, One Network’s patented “Continuous Forecast 管理” algorithm makes automatic short-term adjustments to consumption point forecasts in near real-time in response to systemic changes to demand.
今天的供应链运转不良. Each trading partner typically creates its own forecast based on stale data (e.g. 过去装运或出售的货物), and at best they adjust their operational forecast monthly or weekly.
这种方法是不可取的，原因如下:首先, shipment data is not an accurate representation of consumer demand given that it is distorted by inventory in the supply network and by lead times (both physical and informational); second, manual processes and system delays enter each successive upstream forecast, guaranteeing increasingly stale demand and inaccurate forecasts; finally, multiple and conflicting forecasts make coordination and 协作 among trading partners manually intensive.
这种功能障碍的结果是什么? 服务水平差，库存高. It’s the classic “bull-whip effect” problem that supply chain management has spent decades trying to solve without success. 直到现在.
