Foresight Practitioner Conference

Raleigh, North Carolina | North Carolina State University

Join us, our partners at the Institute of Advanced Analytics
, and our panel of esteemed speakers – experienced practitioners, renowned scholars, and developers of supply chain software – as we seek to improve the integration of forecasting with inventory control and supply planning.
Why focus on the forecasting process?
Research has revealed that too often the forecasting process is decoupled from inventory and supply planning: forecasters have imperfect knowledge of how their forecasts are used and managers have little knowledge about where the forecasts are coming from. The resulting misunderstandings and outright calculation errors are costly and wasteful. Resolving these problems requires better communication among forecasters, planners, and suppliers of the software in use.
Our conference speakers will provide perspectives from their experience and research on how to reintegrate these critical processes, reaping the benefits of lower costs and better service.
Our conference offers a day and a half of interesting and informative professional development.
