ORDER FORECAST: HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR IN FULL
When Walmart gave suppliers visibility to order forecast projections through its Supply Plan, Walmart raised fill rate expectations of its suppliers. Learn how to use Retail Link® to have more success with this aspect of OTIF.
Today fill rate expectations are higher. Because Walmart is now sharing order forecasting data, suppliers are expected to improve their execution and performance as reflected in their In Full scores. 8th & Walton’s 2-hour class will take you through it all — so you are fully prepared and will succeed.
This class is designed for replenishment analysts and managers, forecasting managers, demand planner and allocation managers, accounting managers, and executives wanting a greater understanding of Supply Chain.
This class is for Walmart suppliers selling in Walmart U.S. stores.
