In this article, we will be taking up monthly capacity planning for a team. We will be using the Resource Capacity Planner Excel Template in this exercise. (Link: https://indzara.com/product/resource-capacity-planner-excel-template/) SCENARIO: We are responsible for planning our team’s capacity every month. We need to have a realistic view of how much work can be done by our team next month, taking into account the availability of each of our team members during the month. This will allow us to commit to our leadership on deliverables’ scope and if needed ask for more resource or to reduce the deliverables. Resource Capacity Planner Excel template is helpful in understanding the available resource capacity, comparing with demand and identifying surplus/deficit capacity by skill groups. The template takes the resource availability, holidays, weekends, overtime and vacation data to calculate capacity. Then, based on your input demand data, it can calculate the surplus/deficit capacity. In addition, you can generate an employee availability report. It can be used in different environments. For example, a manager leading a team can use this to plan capacity of his team every month. A project manager who is working on a multi-month long project can plan the resource capacity for the entire duration. This can also be used outside corporate environments wherever you want to compare demand vs capacity.

Today's tip is on the Ekos forecasting tool – a powerful feature that lets your production team, managers, and sales team view the movements of your raw materials, WIP volume, and finished goods in real time. Many of our users request reports to see what their planned product volume is for a month compared to customer invoices – the forecasting tool can be considered a live, real time report that gives you this exact information at the click of a button. You can also drill into each month, week, or day to see a targeted list of data that is relevant in that moment. When your production team plans batches and creates packaging plans, your sales team can see what finished goods inventory they have available to sell, down to the date. It also alerts you when quantities of an item go negative, or reaching their reorder point, by different color indicators. From a high level, you can see what's in the red and where you may hit an insufficient inventory warning, allowing you to correct your mistake before it's even made. Let the Forecasting Tool help guide your purchasing, production, and customer sales with data you've already created, giving some time back to your team. That's it for today's tip – we'll see you next Tuesday!

Just wanted to give you a few insights and next steps for the enhanced batch process that's heading your way. This new process will help with task management – now giving you the ability to assign tasks to teams or individuals, watch their progress in a calendar view and interact with your team in a new way. It will also allow your team to plan ingredient additions multiple days into the process (think dry-hopping) and provide new batch dashboards. To learn more about these enhancements check out the Knowledge Base – in the Enhanced Batch Process section you’ll find multiple articles and visuals relating to each of these features. With all these enhancements – there are a few recommended steps we’d like for you to start. First – we need your team to start reviewing your recipes. When you upgrade – each of your recipe phases will be converted to tasks. What do we mean by this - on your current recipe every ingredient is given a "Recipe Phase" some of you may have customized these to have more than others. Think about how many different tasks – like these (insert screen capture) you want to manage during batch production. Our suggestion at minimum is to have a Brewhouse phase and a Dry hop phase. Next – we want you to consider 2 options when upgrading your customized Ekos to the enhanced batch process. Decide if your team wants to upgrade and maintain all historical Ekos data OR if your team would rather upgrade with a fresh site. This would mean clearing your current recipes, inventory, batches, and sales - allowing you to rebuild the data from scratch. If you decide to clear your data – no bother in updating your recipe phases you will get to customize your tasks after the upgrade! One more thing to note – if your team currently uses Ekos to populate your BRO this is still to come in the enhanced process and we recommend you holding off on upgrading. Keep an eye on your inbox for more emails relating to the enhanced batch process and how to get started after your recipe updates are complete.

http://theawesomeliving.com/the-business-budgeting-process If your business is getting started, THE goal is to start bringing in revenue so that your upfront expenses begin to be covered. If you have $50,000 in expenses the first year and $50,000 in income, you may be still afloat or you may be out of business, depending on how you planned your budget. What is budgeting? It is planning for income and expenses over a period of time. What should you include in your budget? TIME Equipment costs Storage costs for equipment State Licensing and Registration fees Insurance- liability, health, and/or equipment depending on your business Office supplies Legal, Accounting, and Bookkeeping Expenses Website (design and maintenance) Professional Training (continuing education, seminars, online training, etc) Professional Memberships (Chamber of Commerce, other professional organizations) Telephone MARKETING-The best way to increase revenues is to increase your marketing efforts. Planning the Budget Keep in mind that some of these costs are going to be fixed, some will be variable. Do what you can to maintain a low fixed cost business to give yourself more options when cash gets tight. Remember that it's critical to plan for marketing upfront so that your business will acquire customers. There are many low cost marketing strategies that you can try to see what works before spending $1,000's on something like a billboard. When you're just getting started, it's likely that you'll be optimistic and plan your income accordingly. Timing your cash flow is what will be the challenge. Plan for the expenses you know about month by month. Add a buffer for unexpected expenses that will come up. Plan for a gradual increase in income- be conservative. Unless you have an established clientele base that you're taking with you (ie hairdresser, financial planner) new customers will be somewhat cautious and watch from a distance before trusting that you're going to stay in business. Work the Plan Once you've established your budget plan, you may see that expenses are exceeding income for a few months. Be sure you have enough savings to carry you through those months, and some months beyond that. If you're leaving another job, be sure to have a solid marketing plan to get revenues right away. If you're doing your business part-time, don't think about leaving until you've proven a few months of income exceeding expenses. Do your best to stay on track but if things come up, don't be surprised. Remember to focus on generating revenue by getting customers, not growing inventory or equipment stockpiles. For detailed explanations on this aspect of business planning, get more details at http://theawesomeliving.com/the-business-budgeting-process/ Jenn Glidden and other experts share their experience with starting businesses for success.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to decide which Income Statement line items Balance Sheet accounts such as Accounts Receivable, Prepaid Expenses, and Deferred Revenue should be linked to. You’ll also see an example of how to check your work, how to tell when you’ve linked something incorrectly, and what to do with more “random” line items. Table of Contents: 2:23: The Rough Answer to Projecting Balance Sheet Line Items 5:43: Rules of Thumb for Specific Line Items 9:36: Example for Atlassian – Checking Your Work 14:38: How to Handle “Random” Line Items 16:30: Recap and Summary The Rough Answer to Projecting Balance Sheet Line Items The rough answer is: “Stop worrying about what each individual item should be linked to, and instead worry about the OVERALL change in working capital as a % of the change in revenue.” This question represents a case of overlooking the forest for the trees – yes, how you link individual items can make a difference, but it does NOT make a bigger difference than the overall change in working capital. Remember that all that Balance Sheet items such as Accounts Receivable, Prepaid Expenses, Inventory, and Deferred Revenue really impact is the company’s cash flow – does it spend cash as it grows, or does it earn more cash as a result of growth? If you understand that bigger picture item, you’ll be well on your way to “getting” this concept. Rules of Thumb for Specific Line Items Accounts Receivable: Link it to revenue. Deferred Revenue: Link it to revenue. Inventory: Link it to COGS. Accounts Payable, Accrued Expenses, and Prepaid Expenses: Link these to COGS, or OpEx, or both, depending on the company. “Other” Assets or Liabilities: Hold these constant or link them to revenue. “Random” Items: Find a matching Income Statement item and link them there, or make them a percentage of revenue. Example for Atlassian – Checking Your Work For Atlassian, we check all the numbers by calculating the historical Change in Working Capital and then comparing the Change in WC as a % of the Change in Revenue to the future numbers there. Historically, the average Change in WC as a % of the Change in Revenue was around 23%, and going forward it is set to approximately 10-20%, so we feel it is a reasonable estimate. If we had linked to an incorrect line item instead, such as linking Trade Payables to Revenue rather than OpEx, it would be fairly noticeable since the Change in WC would not follow a clean trend. How to Handle “Random” Line Items For “random items,” such as Maintenance Provisions on a company’s Balance Sheet, you can always try to match them with the relevant Income Statement line items. That works in this example for EasyJet. If that doesn’t work, you could just set these items to a % of revenue instead and simplify the whole process. You can check your work with the same method: calculate the Change in WC as a % of the Change in Revenue and verify that it follows a relatively clean trend line over time. Recap and Summary Whenever you build 3-statement projections, always start with the END GOAL – measuring the cash flow impact – in mind. Accounts Receivable and Deferred Revenue: Link it to revenue. Inventory: Link it to COGS. Accounts Payable, Accrued Expenses, and Prepaid Expenses: Link these to COGS, or OpEx, or both, depending on the company. “Other” Assets or Liabilities: Hold these constant or link them to revenue. “Random” Items: Find a matching Income Statement item and link them there, or make them a percentage of revenue. To check your work, determine if the company spends in advance of its growth (the Change in WC as a % of the Change in Revenue will be negative), or whether it gets extra money as a result of its growth (the Change in WC as a % of the Change in Revenue will be positive).

What does AGGREGATE PLANNING mean? AGGREGATE PLANNING meaning - AGGREGATE PLANNING definition - AGGREGATE PLANNING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Aggregate planning is an operational activity that does an aggregate plan for the production process, in advance of 6 to 18 months, to give an idea to management as to what quantity of materials and other resources are to be procured and when, so that the total cost of operations of the organization is kept to the minimum over that period. The quantity of outsourcing, subcontracting of items, overtime of labour, numbers to be hired and fired in each period and the amount of inventory to be held in stock and to be backlogged for each period are decided. All of these activities are done within the framework of the company ethics, policies, and long term commitment to the society, community and the country of operation. Aggregate planning has certain prerequired inputs which are inevitable. They include: 1. Information about the resources and the facilities available. 2. Demand forecast for the period for which the planning has to be done. 3. Cost of various alternatives and resources. This includes cost of holding inventory, ordering cost, cost of production through various production alternatives like subcontracting, backordering and overtime. 4. Organizational policies regarding the usage of above alternatives. "Aggregate Planning is concerned with matching supply and demand of output over the medium time range, up to approximately 12 months into the future. The term aggregate implies that the planning is done for a single overall measure of output or, at the most, a few aggregated product categories. The aim of aggregate planning is to set overall output levels in the near to medium future in the face of fluctuating or uncertain demands. Aggregate planning might seek to influence demand as well as supply.

What is SAFETY STOCK? What does SAFETY STOCK mean? SAFETY STOCK meaning - SAFETY STOCK definition - SAFETY STOCK explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Safety stock term used by logisticians to describe a level of extra stock that is maintained to mitigate risk of stockouts (shortfall in raw material or packaging) due to uncertainties in supply and demand. Adequate safety stock levels permit business operations to proceed according to their plans. Safety stock is held when there is uncertainty in demand, supply, or manufacturing yield; it serves as an insurance against stockouts. Safety stock is an additional quantity of an item held in the inventory in order to reduce the risk that the item will be out of stock, safety stock act as a buffer stock in case the sales are greater than planned and or the supplier is unable to deliver the additional units at the expected time. With a new product, safety stock can be utilized as a strategic tool until the company can judge how accurate their forecast is after the first few years, especially when used with a material requirements planning worksheet. The less accurate the forecast, the more safety stock is required to ensure a given level of service. With a material requirements planning (MRP) worksheet a company can judge how much they will need to produce to meet their forecasted sales demand without relying on safety stock. However, a common strategy is to try and reduce the level of safety stock to help keep inventory costs low once the product demand becomes more predictable. This can be extremely important for companies with a smaller financial cushion or those trying to run on lean manufacturing, which is aimed towards eliminating waste throughout the production process. The amount of safety stock an organization chooses to keep on hand can dramatically affect their business. Too much safety stock can result in high holding costs of inventory. In addition, products which are stored for too long a time can spoil, expire, or break during the warehousing process. Too little safety stock can result in lost sales and, thus, a higher rate of customer turnover. As a result, finding the right balance between too much and too little safety stock is essential. Safety stocks are mainly used in a "Make To Stock" manufacturing strategy. This strategy is employed when the lead time of manufacturing is too long to satisfy the customer demand at the right cost/quality/waiting time. The main goal of safety stocks is to absorb the variability of customer demand. Indeed, Production Planning is based on a forecast, which is (by definition) different from the real demand. By absorbing these variations, safety stock improves the customer service level. Creating a safety stock will also prevent stock-outs from other variations, like an upward trend in customer demand. Safety stock is used as a buffer to protect organizations from stockouts caused by inaccurate planning or poor schedule adherence by suppliers. As such, its cost (in both material and management) is often seen as a drain on financial resources that results in reduction initiatives. In addition, time-sensitive goods such as food, drink, and other perishable items could spoil and go to waste if held as safety stock for too long. Various methods exist to reduce safety stock: these include better use of technology, increased collaboration with suppliers, and more accurate forecasting. In a lean supply environment, lead times are reduced, which can help minimize safety stock levels, thus reducing the likelihood and impact of stockouts. Due to the cost of safety stock, many organizations opt for a service level-led safety stock calculation; for example, a 95% service level could result in stockouts, but is at a level that is acceptable to the company. The lower the service level, the lower the requirement for safety stock.

Businesses need to take their demand management process to the next level if they are to avoid being left behind by the competition. First, they need to understand the maturity of their process so they can make the right improvements, at the right time, and in the right order. In our consumer-driven business climate, effective demand management is an essential business component. But for many organisations demand management is consigned as a supply chain process and the demand plan is a forecast. Watch thought leaders Debbie Bowen-Heaton and Andrew Walker as they challenge that paradigm. Hear how demand management is a sales and marketing planning process – a fundamental driver for business growth and strategy with the needs and wants of the consumer running through the entire supply chain.

Alison Hammond, of "Big Brother" fame, goes inside BMW's factory in Oxford to provide a lively guide to the production process for its New Mini. PRODUCTION PLANNING: First comes production planning. Customers' orders are analysed by a program called "Kiss" - this is vital to meet buyers' special requirements. Stage two is "Body in White" - 228 robots weld the basic framework together. QUALITY CONTROL: Quality control is essential. The main aim is to spot any problems before the car is painted and finished. Painting each Mini takes 10 hours including the pre-treatment, electro painting, and drying time. JUST IN TIME: Parts come from all over the world. They're ordered on just in time principles, to minimise on storage space and costs. Stage four is the final assembly of the car. Team-working is an essential part of the production process. Health and safety of workers is a major concern. But what about the health of the planet - do we really need lots more cars on our roads?

Greetings from OmegaCube Technologies! Machine monitoring is an Integrated technology system that enables machines to continuously talk to machine gateway devices that in turn relay data to central cloud server and to ERP/MRP software, hand-held & desktop devices etc. Personnel access to these systems get continuous update on monitor machine setup, production, output quality, idle/downtime, allowing them to quickly respond to disruptions and take informed decisions on customer order prioritization. Slide 2 All machines in the shop-floor are connected to individual machine monitoring gateway devices. These continuously monitor and capture machine health, performance and operational data. The data is then passed on to the cloud-based database server. The server has a machine monitoring software that uses this raw data, converts them into useful analytical information based on the audience type and dispatches to desktop/laptops and hand-held devices. 1. Customer order status, job status, inventory availability, personnel & machine availability to the ERP. 2. The shop owner gets a broad-level information on sales & production forecast, actual sales numbers, machine/personnel availability, profitability, issues etc. 3. Personnel receives real-time updates on machine availability, breakdown, idle time, setup time, job processing and status, personnel availability & allocation etc. 4. Customer gets information on order status, shipment status and tracking details, packing slip and sales invoice etc. 5. Data is sent to all stakeholders in real-time allowing them to respond to situations and take corrective measures. Slide 3 A Work Order is created in ERP and sent to the shop floor personnel. The personnel receive information such as Work Order schedule, parts information, inventory available and due date. Post-activity, the personnel updates the Work Order with time spent on the activity, scrap generated, processed job details etc. The ERP updates the order details and sends it to the machine gateway device that is connected to a CNC lathe machine. The machine receives inputs such as parts information, nesting details, inventory available, job due date etc. The machine performs the required activity and updates the Work Order with machine login/logout info, job information etc. Post product manufacture, the ERP closes the Work Order and updates the order details. The data is sent to the central cloud database where the information is analyzed and sent to stakeholders. Slide 4 Scheduling Based on the previous financial year sales, planned sales, expected orders and material availability, a capacity and operational plan is created for the entire year. The entire scheduling is divided and displayed in the form of daily, weekly, and monthly report to provide a clear picture to the shop-floor and production personnel. Though the schedule is based on actual/projected customer demand, overall sales plan, expected orders, customer service, it is constantly subject to change by ad-hoc/emergency orders, high-priority customer service, material, machine & personnel availability etc. Continuous changes to the schedule are done real-time through machine monitoring. The machine gateway devices constantly capture the machine and personnel availability, shift details, material availability and visibility into each job. ERP software makes changes to the schedules accordingly and relays it to the shop floor supervisor. MRP With the scheduling plan in place, the ERP system checks if there is adequate inventory in hand to process the orders both planned and ad-hoc. In case of shortage, the ERP raises a procurement request with the suppliers in advance so that it arrives just in time to process the order and deliver on time to the customer. Slide 5 The shop floor personnel gets real-time data for each machine such as machine utilization, availability, idle-time, down-time, machine health/performance etc. These helps identify poor machine performance, potential machine issues and leads personnel to take precautionary measures before the machine breaks down. This data also helps personnel to zero-in on the quality of the yield and take a decision to accept, reject or re-work. Slide 6 Benefits 1. Real-time information on machine health and performance prevents potential machine breakdowns and reduce down time. 2. In case of sudden increase in demand, load can be balanced by allocating jobs to idle-machines. 3. Information is displayed in different forms for various levels in the organization. 4. Work orders are seamlessly prioritized, executed with real-time status on progress/completion. 5. Process changes are undertaken in various departments based on insights from the data. 6. Helps determine OEE 7. Instant production visibility and in-depth data analytics for faster decision making.

Auctions for selling pot plants, in particular in The Netherlands, are important for growers. They also need to offer their supply indirectly to externa websites (i.a. FloraXchange) or directly to specific distributors, exporting firms, retail and so on by specific supply lists. www.mprise-indigo.nl

In this video, Seller Essentials shows you How to Avoid Amazon FBA's Long-Term Storage Fees. On February 15 and August 15 every year, Amazon assesses a long-term storage (LTS) fee to all items with more than a single unit in stock that have been in the warehouse for more than 6 months. To avoid this, you need to identify your inventory that is subject to these fees and select one of the following options to avoid the fees: - Reduce your price to liquidate the inventory before the deadline. - Have the inventory returned to you at a cost of .50/unit. - Have Amazon destroy your inventory. There are two methods to check which of your items will be subject to the LTS fees. First Option: Go to your Recommended Removals report by doing the following: In Seller Central, hover over “Reports” at the top of the screen. Select “Fulfillment” from the drop-down menu. On the far left toward the bottom, select “Recommended Removals.” At this point you can either quickly place a removal order for all of your inventory that will be assessed a LTS fee, or you can go through the list and check each item individually to see what strategy would work best. I recommend using this report when you know you want to have all of your inventory sent back to you. This next report is better if you need to make individual decisions about each ASIN. Second Option: Go to your Inventory Health report by doing the following: Follow steps 1 and 2 above. Select “Inventory Health” from the Inventory section on the left. Select the “Download” tab and select “Download.” Once your file is downloaded, open it (it will be a .txt file) Copy the entire text and paste it into an Excel spreadsheet. Go to the far right column and sort from largest to smallest. Now you will see, in descending order, the products that you will be charged for and how much. This will help you as you make your decisions about what to drop prices on, what to have returned to you, what to have destroyed, OR what to leave in the warehouses. This last option is for items that will incur very small fees due to their size. If Amazon is only going to charge you .05/unit, it’s probably best to just leave it there. If you are looking for more great tips, tools, and resources to help you run your Amazon business more profitably and more efficiently, make sure you check out selleressentials.com.

www.kinaxis.com - Demand and Supply Chain Responsiveness — The Other Half of the Demand Forecasting Conversation It's known that despite the time and effort put into forecasting, in a dynamic market with lots of volatility, the forecast will always be inaccurate. It is not uncommon to hear of companies within High-Tech struggling to get demand forecast accuracy above 50 percent. With that in mind, the question is: where should one spend time and effort? In making the demand forecast as accurate as possible and forever analyzing why the results didn't match? Or in accepting that there is a lot of uncertainty and establishing a supply chain response management capacity to react quickly and effectively to unplanned demand? This session will discuss how and why companies should adopt continuous and collaborative S&OP processes to best satisfy demand profitability while providing high customer service.

Steve De Castro, Director of Supply Chain Finance, discusses how Anaplan’s flexibility and “what-if” capabilities improved Del Monte’s ability to adjust to market fluctuations in real time. Del Monte is one of the biggest producers of pineapple products. We provide 20 percent of the global supply of pineapple. We are not just selling pineapple—we also sell health and wellness to every family. My team handles the FP&A budgeting, forecasting, variance reporting. We had a system that was already conking out because of hardware issues. I didn’t want my team to go back to the Excel spreadsheets that we were using before. So we have three different workbooks for each channel. Each workbook has about 50 worksheets, and I approached my boss [and] said we need a platform for planning and for reporting. We work in the food and beverage industry and most of our products are in the fast-moving consumer goods segment, and added to that is the complexity that these products have shelf lives. If they don’t get delivered on time, or if they don’t get produced when the demand is there, wastage is very high. What we have implemented so far is the FP&A use case, and when I say FP&A, it’s the budgeting where we have volume and non-operating income. But at the same time we have embedded into that use case supply chain finance aspects. So that’s the logistics, warehouse capacity planning and soon the bill of material-based costing for our culinary products. With Anaplan, it’s really just like Excel on steroids. The multidimensionality of it, and then the fact that you can change your variable and everything automatically changes, it’s a big help for us because often times we have changes in the planning process where just key variables are being changed. When we were using BPC, if we had a variable change, we had to rewind the whole thing—so run volume allocation, run calculation because the changes were not dynamic and that’s where the productivity as well is coming from, from using Anaplan. We just completed the budget cycle, and obviously because of the El Nino phenomenon that we are facing and performance in the past, we have issues and we have to prioritize some of our product allocations. And now because we have Anaplan, when we run our first scenario, we saw that certain areas were not profitable and we went back right away to our sales people and our channel team and our logistics team to inform them about this mismatch—and right away they knew that they needed to adjust.
