The client, a leading footwear company in North America, owns and operates several footwear and accessory brands, and has retail outlets across US and Canada.
Tenzai team conceptualized and developed an AI powered replenishment solution based on the principles of Purpose-driven AI Framework. The new solution predicts store level replenishments for each SKU across 1000+stores.
To create the solution, internal data like shipping, inventory, POS, product data, along with promotions, events and store information were considered.
A forecasting model, using an ensemble of multiple forecasting techniques was built to predict demand at store and SKU levels.
The forecasting model was then overlaid with constraints like store size, minimum order quantity, inventory thresholds, product lead time etc.
The replenishment solution was deployed across outlets through dashboards that were configured with email and mobile notifications.
