[eBook] Strategies for Efficient Clinical Supply Management and Forecasting
A proactive approach for effective clinical supply management is essential for reducing the risk of supply-related delays, stock-outs and excess inventory. Utilizing simulations to performing “What If” scenario planning for demand forecasting is a powerful, insightful supply chain management tool, particularly for complex studies with multiple variables. However, forecasts are only as good as the models upon which they are built and the inputs provided.
This eBook explores how to drive excellence within the forecasting process and how to utilize forecasting throughout the clinical study to better plan clinical supply budgets and project timelines and to identify potential supply-related issues before they negatively impact your study.
Key takeaways include-
- The importance of pre-study forecasting for initial demand planning and smoother site start up
- Critical data points that should be included in every forecast
- How to plan for and manage mid-study changes and determine when reforecasting may be appropriate
