The JDA-Butterball project was deemed one of the “100 Great Supply Chain Projects” of 2013 based on the significant benefits Butterball received through its implementation of JDA’s Demand and Fulfillment solutions.
Butterball selected JDA Demand and JDA Fulfillment to help improve the company’s short and long-term forecasting processes and improve the management of date-sensitive inventory. Results of the project included 50 percent improvement in long term forecast bias and 28 percent reduction in distressed obsolescent inventory.
“Through the use of JDA solutions, Butterball is better positioned to anticipate and respond quickly when market dynamics change,” said Dean Lisenby, director of demand and supply planning, Butterball, LLC. “The improved forecasting and data management processes have enabled Butterball to be more proactive in shaping demand. This allows supply chain planners to address seasonal capacity requirements while optimally balancing capacity and inventory risk.”
“What makes JDA’s receipt of the 2013 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 significant is that this award is based on a customer achieving supply chain excellence and measurable ROI,” said Danny Halim, vice president, industry strategies, JDA Software. “Butterball leads its industry in quality, great tasting products and JDA is proud to support the supply chain processes that help keep Butterball customers loyal and satisfied.”
Butterball was also the recipient of JDA’s 2013 Real Results Awards, an award that honors companies that achieve measurable return on investment, develop innovative approaches to supply chain processes, and collaborate beyond traditional supply chain boundaries.
