In essence, demand planning is a balancing act that involves keeping a product’s inventory levels in line with the level of demand for the product. The process, of course, is a lot more complicated. Demand planning means keeping track of many things at once, including historical data, lead times, market trends, and even external factors such as weather and oil prices which can impact the cost of transportation. To do this successfully means having strong planning processes and robust supply chain connections in conjunction with production reliability and real-time tracking of lead times.
