Get accurate demand forecasts with highly granular near-term market insights with our AI-led Demand Sensing. Leverage advanced AI & ML with the best demand planning software to process large volumes from various sources, both internal and external, to allow for data-driven inventory decisions for every node in the supply chain. Unlike traditional demand forecasting which leverages only historical data to predict future demand, demand sensing enables you to respond to changing customer demand, market changes and optimize your supply chain pipeline and production in real-time. We help you include the impact of factors that impact demand like price, promotions, seasonality, events & holidays etc with the assistance of our demand forecasting software

We have a bottom up approach to demand sensing where the forecasts are made based on the data collected at most granular SKU/store/channel levels. Demand is predicted at such granularity and is then aggregated up for overall demand forecasts. In this approach, demand is predicted as close to the customer as possible and then rolled up to the top for more accurate demand prediction numbers. A bottom-up approach is a more pragmatic approach with lesser chances of human bias or error. 

With automated demand forecasting solutions like Kronoscope, you can predict demand accurately by layering your historical sales data with various other factors that impact demand accuracy. The factors such as seasonality, pricing, promotions, weather, events, etc. have a significant impact on the daily demand trends. This helps you respond rapidly to any changes in your supply chain.  

Demand Sensing also introduces automation in data collection and analysis through a demand forecasting tool that leaves very little room for manual error and biases and thus resulting in higher prediction accuracy. An accurate demand forecast helps in projecting optimum inventory levels and safety stocks leading to increased revenue, profitability, and working capital. Demand Sensing can help decipher customer sentiment and preferences at a granular level helping improve product mix and overall customer satisfaction levels.


The FAQs

What is demand sensing?

Demand Sensing is the new-age method of utilizing AI/ML, IoT, and other advanced technologies to provide more accurate, real-time demand predictions. 

It is the real-time analysis of customer demand signals collected from various sources like POS, social media, and market research to capture short-term fluctuations and trends.

How is demand sensing different from demand forecasting?

Demand Forecasting is a theoretical and statistical way of predicting consumer demand based on historical sales data. Typically, forecasts are done over 18-24 month cycles but may vary based on product category and industry.

Demand Sensing takes Demand forecasting to the next level by considering short-term trends, incorporating baseline data adjusted for external and internal factors to create an ever-evolving real-time demand forecast. Demand Sensing provides higher accuracy in demand predictions, day-by-day sensing by leveraging a high level of data granularity to analyze daily demand information as close as possible to the end customer and immediately detect changes in demand behavior.

What are the factors we consider in our demand sensing engine?

We follow a bottom-up approach to sense demand changes at the most granular (SKU) level. The Baseline predictions deal with SKU, Channel, Store level demand predictions which takes into account Historical sales trends, Seasonal effects, Cyclicity, Outlier Corrections. 

In the next stage, the Factor adjusted demand predictions are made by including factors like Changes in pricing, Marketing/Promotional Campaigns, Holiday & Weather. The system analyzes the impact of these factors on demand and adjusts the baseline predictions accordingly.

What kind of models do you use for your demand sensing engine?

We use an assembly  of machine learning models and statistical modeling - whichever helps us minimize the error in our prediction. There’s an ensemble of models - every combination gets a custom model.

We check historical sales data to determine how we want to segregate the data, and we can have separate models for each channel, our sub brands or categories and the model tuning depends on the data.

How do you predict demand for newly launched products?

Predicting demand accurately and planning inventory for new products or stores can get tricky as there’s no historical data available. Our solution simplifies this by intelligently associating new products or new stores with existing ones that have similar attributes. Eventually, the system learns continuously and trains itself to predict demand and plan inventory for new products/stores independently.
