Day in the Life of the Demand Planner

Demand planning is a cyclical process. A month ends, work begins, mostly varying week to week and even day to day - and then the month closes and the cycle re-starts.

At the IBF Chapter Meeting, you will learn:

  • What does the work of the demand planner look like within the month
  • How do you prep for a demand consensus meeting
  • What is the agenda for the meeting
  • Who is in the meeting
  • What materials or tools are used during the meeting
  • What are the outputs
  • How does demand planning enable S&OP
  • When do you review statistics and so on...
  • Patrick will be leading a panel that will focus on how demand planners lead the forecasting process through the cycle. The panel – made up of experienced demand planners and S&OP experts from Consumer Products, Medical Device, Industrial Distribution and Hi-Tech - will discuss ‘A Day in the Life of a Demand Planner” to help enrich the understanding of the role and process. Often times best practices are ones that work best for your company. By learning about how the demand planning cycle works at other companies, it will help attendees build, refine or tune their own process.
