Demand Translation

Real-time demand signal from end-to-end

“We knew we needed to find a way to deliver more value to our customers and trading partners while reducing inventory and operations costs. We’ve chosen One Network because of its unique and highly innovative technology.”logo-dana-white-400x400Tobias Jendrell, Global Director, Materials & Logistics, Dana
The Real Time Value Network™ first generates a single order forecast that is continuously adjusted based on actual demand changes.  The Demand Translation service provides a patented multi-tier platform that propagates this demand to all of the trading partners in your supply chain, from end-to-end.

From your forward-most  point of demand, (e.g. store, distribution center, or manufacturer) the Demand Translation service automatically translates the order forecast to the appropriate level of detail and communicates it to an unlimited number of suppliers and logistics providers.  This includes converting  units of measure (e.g. pallets to boxes) or exploding an assembly bill of material into its components or raw materials.

The Demand Translation service constantly monitors demand and supply points in the network and dynamically flags business process exceptions, allowing  buyers, planners, and suppliers to proactively resolve them before they lead to  stockouts, lost production, excess inventories or costly transportation premiums.
