Every supply chain has its idiosyncrasies, every organisation its own patterns of demand and forecasting. There's therefore no fixed way to rate or select 'the best' planning tool - rather you must select the best tool for your organisation. This session is aimed at those who know there is a need for a planning solution or a change of tool; who are evaluating the best options and beginning the process of shortlisting or narrowing down the search. We'll look at selection process and methodology, looking at scorecasrd frameworks that can help prioritise and narrow the field. We'll draw on expertise from experts Olivehorse, and will involve a range of businesses looking at either wholesale transformation or specific elements of automation.
