Morato Pane was established in 1970 in an artisan workshop in Vicenza. Today the company produces various lines of bread products for large-scale distribution, for a total volume of 22,000 tons per year distributed in the Italian and foreign markets, which make it the second largest Italian group in the market for industrial bread substitutes.
In a context in which we relied on historical and personal experience of the single product and for each individual customer over a period of one month, the desire to organize production over shorter periods and with more reliable statistical data began to emerge. Key points for a company that produces a primary product, as widespread and as perishable on the shelf as bread.
Morato Pane’s need was to be able to find a solution capable of processing, analysing, validating and sharing forecast demand with the other company functions, based on the promotions and discounts applied, with the aim of balancing demand and production.
The Demand Planning solution developed to meet the needs of Morato Pane is made up of the following three modules:
Mathematical-statistical algorithms to analyze historical data and optimize demand forecasting.
Web portal dedicated to the commercial network, as a personalized interface for interacting with demand data, in order to incorporate market knowledge into forecasts.
KPI LIBRARY & ANALYSIS
Aggregated data visualization, management and analysis tool dedicated to Demand Planning process managers.
