Demand Forecast and Purchase Planning      

One of the most important tasks for a manufacturing business in the food/beverage industry is to calculate the right amount of inventory to prevent shortages, taking into account the various sales channels, promotions, past sales performance, seasonal demand fluctuations and other factors.  At the same time, it is essential to manage your inventory by optimizing purchasing operations according to the contracts with each supplier. Calsoft provides Demand Planner, a comprehensive demand analysis and forecasting tool, as a solution to solve such problems.

For lot management requirements, expiration dates can be set for each lot, and the appropriate actions can be taken and controlled according to the expiration date.
