Voyager Proportional Profile Planning
Bridge the gap between demand planning and supply, sourcing, and production planning
Many companies struggle with the complex task of disaggregating demand plans from the product level to SKU-level forecasts. There are many challenges: SKU counts may be too large for individual interaction with each one; unique configurations of items may have sporadic demand, even though the family-level plan is very predictable; or the final product specifications may not be defined when a sourcing commitment must be made. Unfortunately, resorting to a “one-size-fits-all” approach to planning on only a statistical basis can result in costly markdowns and inventory expense.
Voyager Proportional Profile Planning simplifies SKU-level forecasting for products with attributes such as finish, style, color, gender, size, region, speed, power, material type, trim level, configuration, and others. Logility allows you to connect high-level demand plans to detailed supply sourcing and production plans by automatically creating granular forecast expansions earlier in the product life cycle.
With Voyager Proportional Profile Planning you can easily create unlimited multi-tier profiles for products or styles based on the existing demand history of any grouping of similar attributes including target markets or channels. For item variants with sporadic or lumpy demand, profiling improves upon the statistical or aggregate forecast to give your plans more precision. Time-phased profiles can be tuned to a specific stage in the product life cycle, such as sell-in periods, replenishment stages, and phase-out. Profiles can be adjusted or swapped out in response to actual demand/sales data.
