See how manufacturers can plan for what’s next.

The manufacturing industry is changing fast. Workday Adaptive Planning helps manufacturers plan, model, forecast, and adapt as the business landscape changes.

Product profitability—Plan product revenues as well as both direct and allocated costs to forecast margins by category.

Bill of materials/inventory planning—Build detailed component lists to plan standard costs, manage inventory turnover, and forecast cash flow.

Demand forecasting—Forecast customer demand by product family, SKU, region, and channel. Plan unit volumes and prices.

Supply planning—Plan and track capacity, utilization, throughput, and yield across plants and regions. Model downtime, maintenance, and avoided cost.

Workforce planning—Model shifts, employee turnover, overtime, and employee compensation for both salaried and hourly workers.

“Workday Adaptive Planning allows us to be a lot more accurate in our planning because it is so much easier to update information as needed.”
