An accurate forecast is a critical supply-chain driver, but many organizations have a limited view of what comes next. Planning teams are left to interpret sales or budget projections and convert them into actionable forecasts of the item mix.

This process is often managed in complex spreadsheets that are difficult to use, scale and share. They also rely on rule-of-thumb forecasting approaches that don’t properly account for inherent demand patterns or track how forecast overrides can impact accuracy, resulting in forecast errors that can contribute to lost sales and excess inventory.

Every day Epicor ERP software generates orders and production quantities based on user-specified planning parameters such as lead times, safety stocks, reorder points, order quantities, and min./max. levels. Unfortunately, approaches for determining these parameters are often user-defined rule-of-thumb methods that do not account for inherent demand and supply variability. Formal updates of these planning parameters tend to be manual and take weeks or months to complete, resulting in infrequent updates that do not account for continual changes in demand, lead times, item importance, and evolving business goals.

Global pressures to keep costs low and serve customers’ needs on tight margins have challenged manufacturers and distributors to further reduce the cost of carrying inventory without compromising on delivery. A key factor to a successful business is the ability to most accurately cost and forecast inventory while easing the pain of quickly locating the right inventory to meet the needs of the customer or production. Not only does the Advanced Unit of Measure (UOM) module offer a transactional dual unit of measure, it supports the complex needs of managing inventories dimensionally.
