Supply Chain Management Textbook

Managing Demand and Supply in a Supply Chain : Overview

In this chapter we discussed the process of managing demand and supply. We first studied the aggregate planning process and its importance in the supply chain. Later, we discussed the various aggregate planning strategies followed by businesses. The chase strategy, the stable workforce strategy and the level strategy were examined in detail.

The techniques used for solving aggregate planning problems were also studied. The cut and try method and transportation methods were discussed through the use of examples. We then examined the process of managing predictable variability, using various strategies for managing both supply and demand.
