Collaborative Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment CPFR is a tool used to enhance the supply chain that should optimally yield in lower inventories, logistic costs and create efficiency in the whole supply chain to all participants.
CPFR uses cooperative management in sharing key information about the supply chain between suppliers and retailers sellers and buyers who work together to satisfy the needs of the end customer. The following graph represents the collaboration activities of buyer and seller 2 : In the execution phase, Order Generation is used transform forecasts to firm demand after which Order Fulfillment is the process of actually producing, shipping and stocking the goods.
Finally, in the Analysis phase, Exception Management and Performance Assessment are used to constantly monitor any sudden changes in quality, provide key metrics to evaluate the success of the business goals and to monitor the trends in the industry that can help to change the strategy more quickly if necessary.
CPFR provides many valuable benefits for retailers. The benefits include better store shelf stock rates, lower inventory levels, higher sales, and lower logistics costs. Store shelf stock rates refer to the rate by which products are replaced on the store shelf after they are purchased. Having a better store shelf stock rate in beneficial because retailers are able to adjust to customer demand much more quickly and efficiently and can replace purchased products more quickly than retailers who have not implemented CPFR.
This leads to higher customer satisfaction and increased profits for the retailer. Inventory level refers to the on-hand inventory that a retailer has on location, or in close vicinity. More specifically, these benefits include lower inventory levels, faster replenishment cycles, higher sales, and better customer service. Inventory levels refer to the amount of product that the manufacturer has on hand, or in close vicinity.
This frees up space as well as on-hand cash. The space can be used for other things and can reduce storage costs. The increase in on-hand cash gives the manufacturer more flexibility and buying power. It is initiated when a retailer places an order to replenish inventories to meet future demand. A replenishment cycle may be triggered at a market that is running out of stock or detergent or at a mail order firm that is low on stock of a particular shirt,".
This is important because it allows for the retailer to quickly adjust to changes in demand and variety. This increase in efficiency makes the manufacturer a more desirable business partner, and can ultimately increase profitability. Sales refers to the exchange of a good in return for monetary compensation. This increase in sales is important for the manufacturer because it makes the manufacturer more profitable.
The main goal of a company is to become as profitable as possible. This is important because higher customer service ratings equate to higher sales and profits. If a manufacturer is known for having good customer service, new clients are more likely to approach the manufacturer for new manufacturing contracts, which also increases profits.
The implementation of CPFR does not come without challenges. There are many different challenges associated with implanting CPFR. In addition,Fliedner identified other challenges such as the lack of trust in sharing sensitive information, the lack of internal forecast collaboration, and fragmented information-sharing standards. As the dynamics of supply chain and consumer demand patterns change, CPFR needs to adjust accordingly. There have been signs that in the retail industry the dominance of the biggest players increases and the supply chain becomes more complex.
This has implications to the suppliers that are often fragmented into numerous different smaller suppliers. Therefore, next step for CPFR would be to include multiple Tiers to the model, where all the suppliers could communicate and share information not only with the retailer but with each other at the same time. In addition, the importance of a fully functional system is highlighted in an environment, where the consumer demand and interest in different products changes rapidly and increased market competition has made it easier to change to competitor's products.
In more detailed description of CPFR, the four collaborative activities are divided into 8 tasks -two for each collaborative activity:CPFR uses cooperation and information sharing continuously in all phases starting from strategy and planning to the execution phase.
In the early phase, Collaboration Arrangement is a process where theEnd customer 1. Execution 4. Collaboration Arrangement 2. Sales Forecasting 4.
Order Generation 6. Order Fulfillment Analysis 7. Exception Management 8. Performance Assessment buyer and seller set up the scope of the framework, define common goals and responsibilities. After the arrangement process is finished, both parties should form a Joint Business Plan, where significant events affecting supply and demand are identified.
Having lower inventory levels reduces storage costs and increases available space. Free space can be used for store expansion. Having a lower inventory level also frees up some cash, which can be used in other business ventures. This is important because increased sales can lead to increased profits. The whole purpose of a retailer is to maximize profits. Maximizing profits increases the financial strength of the retailer, allowing it to invest its' profits in different business ventures, allowing for expansion.
Logistics involves the integration of information, transportation, inventory, warehousing, material handling, and packaging, and occasionally security,". Having lower logistics costs is important because it increases overall retailer revenues. It also frees up more on-hand cash that can be invested into different areas of the retailer's business, which can ultimately lead to increased productivity.

Improving design with collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment through knowledge management and CSCW Abstract: Customization is a critical success factor in the current business environment.

Show all documents Impact of Forecast Errors in CPFR Collaboration Strategy The primary objective of this research is to investigate the impact of random forecast error and bias forecast error in Collaborative Planning , Forecasting and Replenishment CPFR strategy on the cost of inventory management for both the manufacturer and retailer. Discrete-event simulation is used to develop a CPFR collaboration model where forecast, sales and inventory level information is shared between a retailer and a manufacturer. Based on the results of this study, we conclude that the higher random forecast error and negative bias forecast error increases the cost of inventory man- agement for both the manufacturer and the retailer. When demand variability is high, a bias forecast error has a bigger impact on inventory management cost compared to a random forecast error for both the manufacturer and retailer. Also, a positive bias forecast error is more beneficial than a negative bias forecast error to gain maximum benefits of CPFR strategy.

It uses common metrics, standard language, and firm agreements to improve supply chain efficiencies for all participants. The driving premise of CPFR is that all supply chain participants develop a synchronized forecast. Every participant in a CPFR process supplier, manufacturer, distributor, retailer can view and amend forecast data to optimize the process from end to end.
