Inventory Planner Select Features

Alerts
Automatic notification that there is a situation requiring attention. Alerts will consist of: Batch Process Failure, Critical Shortage (Customer Order Shortage and Impending Stock-out situations), and New Items.

 

Forecasting
A proprietary forecasting engine that automatically computes a forecast for an item. The forecast methods include algorithms proven over several years of use on many different types of data. The most difficult data to predict are slow moving, random demand and seasonal type inventory items. Valogix has built special algorithms for these cases. The presence and degree of seasonal and trend components is detected and applied in the various forecast models. The forecast can be run for either 12, 24 or 36 months.

 

Dashboards
Dashboards are used throughout the product providing critical data and links to the details.

 

Forward Agings
A forward look at the on-hand inventory position for either a 3,6,9 or 12 month period (User Selected Period). It identifies three levels of inventory status based on the expected forecasted demand: Active – means there is the correct amount of stock for the selected period; Excess – means there is more stock on hand than will be consumed over the selected period; Inactive – means there is no expected demand during the selected period.

 

Inventory Flows
Day-by-day table of demands and replenishments for an item/location shown by either week or month. It also includes Available to Promise quantities.

 

Investment Analysiss
A rationalization and optimization of the on-hand and on-order inventory pinpoints where there is too much invested and as an important, where they is too little invested.

 

Planning Groupss
Items that have common planning requirements. Assignment of Planning Groups in terms of planner role and a selected set of: historic usage rate range, forecast usage rate range, warehouse level (supply echelon), location type, location, supplier group, supplier, lead time, and vendor.

 

Scheduled Replenishment Plannings
The automatic system process of identifying items that are or will be in short supply to meet demand on a scheduled basis. It produces a list of Items that have reached a review date and have positive Quantity Needed (negative Net Quantity). It includes the ability to Buy, Make or Transfer items as appropriate. In combination with alerts, scheduled replenishments elevate a planner’s productivity to new levels.
