September 8, 2021: Forecasting Demand for Bundles, Assemblies, and Components


Learn how to forecast demand for bundles and assemblies including ordering components. Configuring bundles and assemblies in Inventory Planner ensures that demand for components is accurately forecasted. Bundles are virtual ‘kits’ where the stock of the components and of the bundle are tied together. Assemblies are goods sold after components are assembled - the stock of assemblies is separate from component stock.

Sneak peek: this session will also include updates to Inventory Planner's assembly planning functionality!
