Plantensive’s Forecast Value Add (FVA) Magnifier

Plantensive’s Forecast Value Add Magnifier enables leadership to prioritize and maximize the planner’s focus and efforts to ensure value-add impacts are made to their forecast accuracy plans. This data-driven approach allows positive impacts at a more granular and surgical segmentation of DFUs, which translates to a more efficient business process.

With planner’s time always at a premium, Plantensive’s FVA Magnifier is designed to maximize their efforts while streamlining your business process. FVA allows your business to run and operate alternate forecasting streams to provide comparisons against your existing, live production forecast. The output clearly illustrates where planners’ input positively affects forecast accuracy, and where the algorithms may outperform planners. 

Plantensive’s FVA Magnifier consists of multiple options for the creation of alternate streams of forecast. The forecast can be auto-tuned by Blue Yonder Demand Classification processes or driven by segmentation default parameters that are mapped to your business strategy. Post creation of the alternate forecast stream, the comparative data is published in a series of dashboard BI reports that supports an analysis to drive action plans regarding shifting planner focus to maximize the value derived from department efforts.

Utilizing Plantensive’s FVA Magnifier will add visibility to the value of your existing forecast stream which showcases improvement areas and supports optimized value from planner efforts; without the added cost of incremental DFU counts or deep functional and technical BY subject matter expertise on staff. As an expansive approach to the alternate stream of forecast generation; our Plantensive Stat Engine team can generate and tune statistical forecasts on behalf of your planners with options for Proof-of-Concept. This allows your Demand Planners to become industry, market, and business strategists focusing on qualitative inputs to interact with the base statistical forecast.
