In demand & supply planning, we often need to calculate projected inventories and replenishment plans – sometimes for hundreds or thousands of SKUs, and through different levels of the distribution network.
In the sales & operations planning (S&OP) process, we might need to run some scenarios to balance demand and supply to support sales: changing inventories plans, sales plans, delivery lead times, production plans, product mix, etc.
Using Shiny, we can design simple, powerful, scalable, and reproducible apps for demand & supply planning as well as the S&OP process. In this talk, you will learn about real-life examples of web applications, which can be deployed in a few minutes to perform some popular demand & supply planning operations.
