Manufacturing Demand Planning

Manufacturing firms forecasting demand across their facilities, supply chains and distribution networks are benefiting from better-informed decisions by working with Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER).  From severe weather response to market opportunity assessment, building supply, restoration and construction firms can improve their business performance with the help of AER’s products based on state-of-the-art environmental and climate science.

Sales Forecasts

How often are your sales forecasts skewed by field-staff optimism from recent severe storms?

Demand Forecasting

Can your demand planning approach identify growth that’s organic, versus seasonal, versus based on recent weather-events?

New Markets

When you assess new markets, how confident are you that the roofs and building exteriors are likely to be damaged by future severe storms?

You can stabilize your uncertainty, react to extreme weather events, determine where to deploy your supplies and how much to deploy, and offset the impact of an unusual year.

For example, AER provides manufacturers of building supply materials and their restoration and construction partners with decision-making products that help hedge against uncertainties and distinguish between the affects of recent storms and history of a region’s building repair cycle.
