collaborative planning forecasting and replenishment (CPFR)

Collaborative, Planning Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR) is a cross-industry strategy approach that enables optimized cooperation between the individual links in a process chain.

By working together in business planning, sales forecasting and replenishment processes, the partners in the value chain

coordinate their activitiesand thus reduce inefficiencies in their business processes. The buyers of products, the suppliers and their upstream suppliers benefit from coordinated production processes through, for example, significantly reduced warehousing and the possibility of just-in-time production

. CPFR is regarded as a further development of Efficient Consumer Response (ECR) on the supply side. All value creation partners along the supply chain have the same relevant information at their disposal and can thus satisfy the ever more demanding customer needs more efficiently.
