MAR 11, 1:30 PM 2020 ICT: Supply Chain Planning & Demand Forecasting Forum (Ho Chi Minh)

MAR 11, 1:30 PM 2020 ICT

In current economic market conditions, creating a reliable forecast has become even more difficult than before. Just using simple or even more advanced trend models will not help companies in Vietnam to predict future upward or downward trends.

This exclusive forum will help companies to achieve a transition from simple forecast to S&OP by looking closely at blockers of change, incorporation of financial analysis and cross-functional alignment.

We will discuss how to succeed in cross-functional integration, achieve more accurate supply chain forecasting by integrating customers and suppliers into a process as well as to improve the quality of data management in your supply chain.

This forum  will gather experts from Vietnam to talk about best practices in implementation and coordination of supply chain planning, forecasting and S&OP processes. We will be reviewing techniques of improvement of the accuracy of forecasting and planning in the cross industries. You will find answers to the most urgent questions about methods of rapid response to negative market conditions. Moreover, leaders from international companies will share their experience in S&OP implementation in Vietnam.
