Extrapolate demand history into the future
A reliable sales forecast is a cornerstone for all planning processes. Demand forecasting allows your planners and sales team to work together in establishing a sales forecast for the future.
FrePPLe uses advanced time series algorithms to extrapolate the demand history, and gives users across the company the capability to review and adjust the sales forecast.
Correctly dimension your stock levels
Correctly dimensioning the inventory across the network is important in today’s complex supply chains. FrePPLe computes safety stocks and reorder quantities for raw materials, intermediate products and end products.
This helps companies to reduce the inventory costs, prevent stockout situations, improve service levels and eliminate manual processes.
Finite capacity planning and scheduling
Generate finite-capacity production plans and schedules constrained by resource capacities, personnel availability, material availability and lead times.
A constrained production plan that can easily be shared across the company allows:
- Reduction of the work in progress and inventory
- Improve the resource utilization
- Improve on-time delivery of customer orders
- Enhanced responsiveness to demand and supply changes
- Improve the planner’s productivity
Enhance planner productivity
Easily manage multiple plans and compare them.

If some algorithms have clearly proved their reliability, the quality of a forecast strongly depends on the demand history characteristics.
