Session Topic: Optimizing Replenishment Processes in the Fashion Industry
Traditionally the fashion industry has relied heavily on human instinct for decision-making. Fashion industry nuances like high volatility of demand, combined with strong interdependencies among sizes and products, renders standard retail distribution algorithms unusable. Current retail technologies force store owners to simplify ordering within a min-max standard retail algorithm, and limit the ability to add necessary industry “tricks” to strategic ordering. Some time ago, one of the worlds biggest fashion retailers, together with MIT, invested in applying analytics to this sector. Based on the investigations, DECIDE, together with the mStore-Operations has developed data and optimization models that helps the fashion industry optimize their replenishment process. In this presentation we will share the business and technical approach of this solution.
IBM Decision Optimization Virtual User Group Meetings provide you with updated and useful information about our products and how you can get the best value for your organization from our optimization technology and solutions.
These meetings are being held electronically with presentations by our product management and development subject matter experts. The sessions will run for approximately one hour, with about 45 minutes of presentation material and 15 minutes for open questions and answers. Our goal is to provide a forum for you to:
- make smarter decisions
