)-- Ultriva, Inc., who has the largest installed base of electronic Kanban systems in the world, announced that their industry brief titled, “Shift to a Demand-Driven Manufacturing Model” is now available for download from their website. This industry brief contains exclusive research content from Gartner “Key Benefits That Form the Business Case for Pull Replenishment in Consumer Products,” authored by Gartner Analyst Jan Kohler, published October 24, 2014.
According to the research from Gartner, “At the supply chain leadership level in consumer products, there is growing interest in understanding the business opportunity of aligning downstream consumption data with near-term supply replenishment.” This research reveals, “While consumer products (CP) companies continue to face demand volatility and expanding portfolios, they strive to reduce inventory and still achieve high service levels. With high forecast error, they are struggling to reach and sustain these objectives.”
The industry brief contains a case study that highlights how Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies can improve their service levels dramatically using this model. Narayan Laksham, Ultriva founder and CEO, explained that while the cases study is about a Consumer Packaged Goods Manufacturer, “Our experience is telling us that these benefits will resonate well with other industrial segments as well.”
