Are you facing these supply chain challenges?
Ineffective demand forecasting
We previously relied on past experience to create material purchase orders, resulting in inaccurate demand quantities. This makes it difficult to validate sales plans proposed by our sales team.
Excess inventory and stock shortages
We struggle to understand variations in demand, leading to excess inventory. Additionally, sales promotions are not always accurately reflected in demand forecasting, resulting in stock shortages.
Planning process is time-consuming
We currently combine multiple data sources manually to plan order quantities. This process is time-consuming and does not improve plan accuracy.
PlanNEL can effectively address these supply chain planning challenges.

PlanNEL is an AI-powered platform that offers automated planning capabilities to help companies manage their supply chain and inventory efficiently. The 4 key modules include Baseline Forecasting (BF), Demand Planning (DP), Inventory Optimization (IO), and Replenishment Planning (RP). These modules are designed to work together to provide a comprehensive solution for managing a company's supply chain and inventory effectively.
Baseline Forecast (BF)
BF module utilizes machine learning algorithms to analyze actual sales and demand influencing factors in order to make accurate forecasts. In conjunction with traditional statistical methods, PlanNEL provides powerful forecasting capability to match customer's future demand.
Demand Plan (DP)
DP module enables human input to improve and provide even more accurate predictions for strategic and priority items. This allows for real-time adjustments to sales plans by evaluating the gap between budget and profit, ensuring that sales goals are met effectively.
Inventory Optimization (IO)
IO module performs ABC-xyz analysis to maintain a desired service level for active sales items. This allows PlanNEL to provide inventory management guidelines, such as economic ordering quantity and safety stock, ensuring that inventory is managed efficiently and effectively.
Replenishment Plan (RP)
RP module uses machine learning algorithms to calculate an optimal inventory replenishment plan for multiple inventory locations. This allows PlanNEL to meet demands on-time while minimizing excess inventory and ensuring efficient inventory management.
Benefits of using PlanNEL
PlanNEL can assist in creating effective sales plans by using AI to generate demand forecasts with high precision. This allows sales staff to focus on other important tasks since PlanNEL can handle the demand forecasting. Additionally, PlanNEL can help align sales plans with key performance measures and metrics, providing a common understanding of the sales plan across the organization.
PlanNEL allows for visualization and advanced estimation of sales and inventory plans, simplifying the budget planning process. Additionally, the system's ability to effectively manage inventory leads to an improvement in cash flow through the reduction of excess inventory in various warehouses.
PlanNEL automates key inventory decisions, such as safety stock, cycle stock, ordering points, and ordering volumes by taking into account fluctuations in demand and sales promotions. This allows supply managers to focus on other tasks, as PlanNEL handles the complicated spreadsheet management while maintaining stable inventory levels.
PlanNEL enables purchasing activities to be more timely and accurate by allowing purchasing staff to focus on products with higher demand fluctuations. Additionally, by sharing plans with suppliers, it becomes possible to stabilize supply and improve job satisfaction for all parties involved.
