Forecast Improvement – An Apparent Oxymoron - Or Why Can’t We Learn to Forecast?
presented by Howard Forman
Joint virtual meeting between APICS Massachusetts Minuteman, APICS New Haven, and APICS South Shore

Wednesday October 21st @ 5:45 PM

Today, companies are faced with increasingly complex and conflicting objectives, as they strive to remain competitive in today’s global marketplace. Proper demand management is a critical ingredient needed to help companies meet financial and operational supply chain objectives. Remember that failure to properly monitor and control the forecasting process, places a company at a competitive disadvantage.

This interactive presentation, presented by Howard Forman, is designed to provide each attendee with an understanding and knowledge of the forecast process and improvement tools. Each attendee will learn how to assess and evaluate the forecast; how to improve the process; and how to help reduce the volatility of forecast error. Finally, each attendee will leave the presentation with practical knowledge that can be immediately applied to help answer the following questions:

  • What is the financial impact of poor forecasting?
  • Why do I need to address the issue of data integrity and metrics?
  • How do I assess if the forecasting process meets supply chain objectives?
  • How does poor forecasting hurt customer service and delivery performance?
