WEBINAR: Demand management in a highly volatile context

Most well-known techniques for managing and forecasting market demand are based on the availability of reliable historical data. And to make matters worse, they also tend to deliver far better results in a more stable market environment. The current CoViD-19 crisis has, for most sectors, a devastating impact on these assumptions. (Partly) closing down and gradually starting up a business in changed conditions, makes all historical data and assumptions questionable. Changing market conditions and government regulations create a highly unstable context. Dealing with this “new normal” will force companies into using new forecasting techniques and more advanced exception management and forecast adjustment processes.

In this free webinar, Prof. Dr. ir. Hendrik Vanmaele, CEO of Möbius, will share his insights based on his more than 20 years of experience with forecasting and demand management in several industrial and service sectors.

We will discuss the following topics :

  • Overview of forecasting techniques with focus on techniques that do not rely on extrapolation of historical data
  • Scenario based forecasting
  • Exception management and forecast adjustments
  • Supported by real life examples
