Demand Sensing - A Supply Chain Planning Game Changer


In today’s fast changing business world, traditional forecasting techniques using historical sales patterns are unable to capture the impact of other variables on sales demand and fail to predict sales demand accurately. Harnessing technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning & NLP changes the game. These technologies help capture data from sources rarely used and enable the system to ‘learn’ historical demand patterns, resulting in more accurate forecasts. The Demand Sensing processes a variety of internal & external variables likely to impact sales demand, such as promotions, price, weather, strikes, lockdowns, competitor pricing etc., to train ML models. Using NLP to collect a wide variety of unstructured data, the trained models are then used to predict sales demand with greater accuracy over the immediate future.
