What is Supply and Demand Analysis?
Demand and supply analysis is a type of supply chain management process that analyzes customers’ needs to determine the capabilities of the supply chain. With the right process in place, management can match supply with demand proactively and execute the plan with minimal disruptions. The demand and supply analysis process is not limited to forecasting. It includes synchronizing supply and demand, increasing flexibility, and reducing variability. If the demand outstrips resources, businesses can improve production or alert consumers about the revised shipment times. If demand seems low, the sales and marketing team might develop promotions or push for a product launch.
