Demand Scenarios

User Accessibility

Demand Review pages are visible to users logged in as Process Coordinator or Demand Team.

A Demand Senario is a combination of Demand V&O. On this page, you can create Demand Scenarios, compare them, view details, and leave comments for your team.

Base Demand Scenario

Base Demand Scenario comes with all datasets. It represents the demand without any Demand V&O. In the following steps of this application, you may use it as the base of the demand scenario.

Create Demand Scenario

At the bottom right of this page, click on the + button.

Enter a unique name and a description for this demand scenario, and click Create.

Once created, the name will appear in the top left table, but it still needs to be defined.

Define Demand Scenario

To include Demand V&O(s) in a Demand Scenario, select the checkbox(es) under the V&O in the top left table. In the example below, ‘Demand Scenario 1’ includes ‘Demand VO #1’; demand scenario #2 includes all three Demand V&Os.

Note that the ‘Base demand plan’ does not include a Demand V&O, and it is not editable.

Select a Demand V&O by clicking its row (not checkbox) to view details in the table at right.

Learn About Demand Scenario

Each Demand Scenario includes a selection of Demand V&Os. It is helpful to learn what is the added impact from each Demand V&O.

The waterfall chart visualizes the impact added by each Demand V&O for the Demand Scenario selected in the top left table.

Demand Scenarios are in columns. Select a Scenario by clicking its column (not checkbox) to view details in the waterfall chart.

You can use the widget action to toggle between revenue and margin.

When toggled to show revenue:

From left to right, the first bar is the revenue of the: Base Demand Scenario. The remaining bars are the revenue changes imposed by each Demand V&O.

A green bar means increase of the revenue, usually due to added demand opportunity.

When toggled to show margin:

The bar at the far left is the margin of the: Base Demand Scenario. The remaining bars are the margin changes imposed by each Demand V&O.

A green bar means increase of the margin, usually due to added demand opportunity.

Compare Demand Scenarios

The next line chart shows time-based total demand volume of all demand scenarios.

The last table shows the demand of all demand scenarios by Customer/Location/Product. In this table, you can use the widget action that toggles group/ungroup to customize your view. The filters on the side panel help locate the Customer/Location/Product to compare among Demand Scenarios. Values showing an increase compared to the base are green, and values showing a decrease are red.
