What is the statistical forecast? What marketing promotions and events are planned? What will their impact be? Demand planning requires inputs from a wide variety of teams, which are often hard to gather and review together in a single place. Data and functions are siloed, making the process of creating a plan that takes into account all key stakeholders a bumpy one.
The same challenge faces organizations once the demand plan is developed - different teams, from finance to supply chain, need to use the outputs for their own planning purposes. But if they are not aligned, the processes remain siloed.
