Quantity planning definition
A smooth logistics process is based above all on planning that takes into account all sub-parameters (storage capacities, throughput times, etc.). Especially in trade as well as in the manufacturing industry, it is important to have a solid material procurement based on quantity planning. This refers to an orientation towards parts required for production or sales, which are defined in terms of type, quantity, deadline and, if necessary, delivery date. location (warehouse, branch, etc.) is determined.
In logistics in particular, scheduling and capacity planning depend heavily on quantity planning, which in turn allows orders to be optimally planned and coordinated.
