DSI Summary

The remainder of this book focuses on how best to forecast demand. However, to bring the discussion full circle, the reader is referred to Figure 1-1—Demand/Supply Integration, The Ideal State. This book focuses on the arrow labeled “Demand Forecast.” I strongly believe that without an effective Demand/Supply Integration process, an accurate demand forecast is not worth the paper it’s written on (or the disk space it takes up on a computer system). I also strongly believe that this one arrow represents the critical beginning of the process. World-class DSI processes require world-class demand forecasting, and it is that to which the discussion turns.
