Motivation and Background A sales and inventory system is a software-based business solution used to simultaneously track sales activity and inventory.
The concept of demand forecasting is diminishing as more and more companies are now focusing on getting accurate and timely demand information rather than depending upon forecasts. This is carried out by effective integration of information from all the nodes of the supply chain and disseminating upstream as well as downstream.
However, there are many industries that will continue to depend upon push strategy and demand forecasting. The students may like to study about the drawbacks of traditional forecasting methods like time series forecasting, moving averages, trend analysis, etc.
Many companies want to incorporate real time data in their forecasting models and focus on forecasting for shorter periods. This requires lots of additional knowledge over and above the traditional ways of working upon past demand data. The modern forecasting models may be based on accurate knowledge of customer segments, major factors that influence forecasting accuracy, information integration, bullwhip effect, scenario planning, simulations, external factors, risks, and causal Fishbone or Ishikawa analysis.
Most of the studies may be qualitative or triangulated. Aggregation is carried out by a company to determine the levels of pricing, capacity, production, outsourcing, inventory, etc.
Aggregation planning helps in consolidation of the internal and external stock keeping units SKUs within the decision and strategic framework for reducing costs, meeting demands and maximising profits.
It may be viewed as the next step of either demand forecasting push strategy or demand information accumulation pull strategy for carrying out estimations of the inventory level, internal capacity levels, outsourced capacity levels, workforce levels, and production levels required in a specified time period.
The students may like to conduct qualitative case studies to research about modern practices of aggregation planning in various industrial and retail sectors. I Global Supply Chains: In the modern world, suppliers in a country are facing direct competition from international suppliers as if the latter are operating within the country.
This has happened due to modernization of information management and dissemination, supply routes, payment channels, electronic contracts, leading to improved reliability and reduced lead times of international suppliers. E-Supply Chains are linked with E-Businesses that use Internet as their medium for accepting orders and payments, and then using the physical channels to deliver the products.
E-supply chain is an excellent example of pull strategy and short term demand forecasting. Information flow across the supply chain is instantaneous because both end points and the intermediate agents work through a single Internet enabled portal.
E-Bay is viewed as one of the founders of this concept at global scales with built-in electronic contract signing and management, electronic payment processing, and electronic delivery processing. The students can find various case studies on E-Supply chains, although the empirical theories are still evolving.
The research studies would be quite challenging, modern and unique, but poorly supported by literatures as the field is still evolving.
K Supply Chain Risk Management: Supply chain risk management is gaining immense popularity due to globalization of competitive landscapes, and growing threats and uncertainty. Risk management in supply chains is directly linked with supply chain agility and hence it needs to be done in very organized and objective manner, incorporating quantitative models.
The root of the problems lie somewhere in the uncertainties in upstream as well as downstream flows of materials, funds, and information.Inventory Management System In Partial Fulfillment of the Course CS “Web Programming” Presented by Opleda, John Lingcar R.
