PSI Planner™ software system from Weeks Software Solutions offers a complete Forecasting module which is fully integrated with its' Distribution/Materials Requirements Planning and Master Production Scheduling modules.
Our Forecasting module is a collaborative tool which mixes "art and science" to allow you to come up with the most accurate forecasts possible. It fully supports a Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) process to efficiently balance your organization's Supply and Demand.
The system generates a statistical forecast for each item-location combination that has been set up by the user (PSI Planner™ uses regression analysis with a seasonality factor as well as other optional time series forecasting methods and our new "Best Method" option to generate this forecast). The user can then make adjustments to the system generated item-location (i.e. "SKU") forecasts and aggregate them nationally, regionally or by other criteria such as product, class or market zone. At this point, further adjustments can be made to the aggregates and be prorated back down to the item-location level to drive production and deployment decisions.
A Forecast Variance Reporting System then "automates" the sometimes tedious but critical activity of measuring planned versus actual forecasts which can be used to improve future forecast accuracy.
PSI Planner™ also gives users the option to calculate item-location safety stock quantities based upon desired customer service levels, and performs ABC analysis nationally or by location.
Our Forecast module is now available as a "stand alone" system which goes by the name of PSI Planner FC™. Please contact us for more information or "click" below to license PSI Planner FC™ now on Amazon at a special promotional price (available for a limited time only):
