Leverage consumer demand signals to drive localized assortments

Consumer Goods companies are challenged by competing pressures. Consumers want more for their money, but ever-pricier raw materials are driving up production costs. How can they increase profits in this environment? By optimizing the supply chain from production to point of sale.

Church & Dwight first implemented JDA Software about 10 years ago. In the past seven years, both our sales and our SKUs have quadrupled, but our inventory as a percent of sales has remained flat. So, we have increased what we are selling and the number of items we manage, but our inventory has remained the same percent of sales as it was when we were managing 300 items seven years ago. I attribute that to a combination of better forecasting and production planning.
