Predictive resource management – not a matter of gut instinct
A serious strategy for resource demand planning will definitely include a certain number of predictions. This is the only way to achieve a real increase in efficiency along the value chain. Uncertain customer demand, risks concerning the availability of systems and material, and unreliable delivery and pick-up times are part of everyday business life. Any such unpredictable factors must be identified and classified as neatly as possible and their effects minimized so that they do not have a negative impact on added value.
Technical visualization options
Assistance on this front is offered by computer-assisted forecasting methods, integrated what-if analyses and, of course, dynamic resource planning, all of which can feed into an early warning system. This makes it easier to discover information in real time so that companies can respond quickly and without wasting resources.
Ingenics has the right tool
