Teradata Demand Chain Management

Teradata DCM forecasts consumer demand and synchronizes inventory to match demand

The Teradata Demand Chain Management (DCM) solution is architected as a bottoms up analytic data solution employing consumer demand to develop sales forecasts of each item, by location, weekly and daily.  These forecasts recognize historical performance, are deep in seasonal and causal identification and respond automatically to the latest trends.  The forecast is then combined with inventory and replenishment strategies, serving to pull inventory through the supply chain based on expected sales across each location in the network.

Recent studies show that retail industry stock-outs are between 5% and 8% and that overstock conditions — the result of poor forecasts and buys - continue to climb.

Teradata Demand Chain Management reverses the flow of information in the traditional supply chain, pulling information about demand at the store and SKU level, up through the chain, to vendors and manufacturers eliminating out of stocks and deducing inventory carrying costs.

The bottom line: Typical Teradata DCM projects deliver multimillion-dollar ROI and payback less than 12 months after implementation.
