The basic ingredient of any demand plan is a statistical forecast. Statistical models and resulting forecasts are the building blocks of the planning process.
Although consensus and collaboration are key ingredients of a successful demand management program, statistical forecasting is the first-step to create the baseline plan. To this end, a good process and software technologies become important. One of the key things you look for when you prepare a Request for Proposal (RFP) is to ensure that you cover all of the modeling algorithms and techniques which are relevant for your process. This depends on your industry and your specific business model.
