In my last blog, (click to read part 1 of this 2 part series), I outlined a few real life errors of a previous client to demonstrate how multiple, seemingly logical singular decisions in the forecast consumption arena could compound on one another to achieve some really ugly results. In this blog, I am going to use an example to show how these decisions, given a 100% accurate forecast (from a sales/demand planning perspective), can cause serious problems for your supply team, and make your demand planners look responsible.
