Collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment (CPFR) processes should be a key part of every forecasting professional’s toolkit. CPFR can drive external alignment with customers and improve forecasting accuracy by increasing visibility to partner forecasts, order patterns and retail factors. If executed effectively, CPFR can provide deeper insights into the business (such as qualitative and quantitative store cluster and geographic information) and facilitate development of more effective sales strategies. In addition, CPFR can optimize inventory levels for both vendor and retailer as both sides work to improve end to end operational efficiencies.
You will learn:
  • When to use CPFR to drive improved operational metrics.
  • How to set up a model CPFR process
  • Expected operational, sales and indirect benefits of CPFR
  • How to integrate CPFR into existing forecasting and S&OP processes
  • Possible next steps in the evolution of CPFR
