Dorel – Analysis and improvement of European Forecasting & demand planning
Based on a thorough analysis the current country forecasting and planning processes are transformed to an improved European process, leading to better servicelevels and lower supply chain costs
Dorel, top manufacturer of strollers, carseats etc., was facing increasing inventory levels and lower service levels. EyeOn was asked to perform a scan of the current forecasting and planning practices in the different European markets. The recommendations are being implemented step-by-step by a joint core team of Dorel and EyeOn, while using specific Dorel resources when needed. This leads to European planning processes in which demand planning is high on the agenda leading to higher forecast accuracy, better availability, lower inventory levels and more transparency.
