retail & consumer goods
True “1 number” Sales & Operational Planning processes are still seldom realised, but consumer goods manufacturers increasingly reach the conclusion that accurate forecasting and collaborative alignment and adherence of the purchasing, manufacturing and sales functions are imperative to balance demand and supply and maximise profit. In Fashion & Apparel retail, first movers reap significant benefits of programs to reduce Lost Sales by improving stock accuracy at SKU, size and colour level by deploying RFID enabled tools, replenishment and restocking triggers and reports. Food retailers also benefit from the deployment of RFID technology but focus on Returnable Transport Item management, and on goods flow tracking by associating goods to RTI’s.
