Wilmington, DEL (PRWEB) September 03, 2013
Arkieva (http://www.arkieva.com) the designer and supplier of the Arkieva suite of advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software products, announced today that their one day seminar for forecasting and demand management professionals is being held in King of Prussia, Pa. (September 10) and in Toledo, Ohio (September 17).
If creating a meaningful forecast that can be used in a timely fashion in response to changing business conditions or unplanned events is critical to the management of your supply chain, this seminar is designed just for you.
Some of the topics that will be covered include:
•The requirements of an effective and mature demand planning process.
•The most effective ways to optimize the limited time you have to create a forecast.
•The most beneficial level of aggregation for forecasting.
•Measuring and Interpreting forecast accuracy.
•Taking control of inventory using best forecasting practices.
The agenda also will cover some of the commonly asked questions about why and how and with whom a forecast should be constructed. Both processes and tools are important elements, and one without the other usually proves to be very inadequate.
The registration is $50 and APICS members can receive six APICS re-certifications points.
To register, go to Arkieva's Events Page and select the seminar location nearest to you.
If you have any questions, call Seminar Coordinator Amy Piccirilli at 302 738-9215 ext. 246.
