The Principles of Demand Management seminar is designed to assist beginning as well as experienced demand planners to acquire a firm understanding of the principles and functions of forecasting and customer and demand management. The seminar will provide an in-depth discussion of how effective forecasts are created and the various types of standard forecasting models available to today’s demand planner. Inventory accuracy is the foundation of inventory management.

The Inventory Accuracy seminar helps beginning and experienced operations managers more effectively manage and control inventory. Through a sample scenario, this seminar will provide attendees the opportunity to diagnose inventory problems and discover solutions as a class. Practical hands-on exercises in the seminar include total inventory carrying cost, ABC inventory control and cycle counting.

Material requirements planning (MRP) is a vital component in the supply chain. It acts as the system’s bridge between master planning and production. MRP helps determine requirements and maintain priorities. The ASCM Principles of MRP seminar assists beginning and experienced planners to use an MRP system. Through classroom discussion and practical, hands-on exercises, this seminar will help attendees gain a firm understanding of the principles and functions of MRP in the manufacturing process.
