NEW CLASS 2020
Improve your ability to forecast accurately and keep your products on the Walmart shelf
It sounds simple: Get the right number of items into Walmart when they’re needed, and don’t run out. But it’s become a complicated game, and the rules keep changing. In this class, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of replenishment and forecasting as well as practical ways to identify and eliminate problems.
Accurate forecasts are essential to producing purchase orders that support both in-stock and merchandise flow. Replenishment is critical to profitability. Learn how to create orders, how modular changes are planned, and how safety stock is used in GRS. You’ll leave class understanding the roles and responsibilities of Walmart replenishment team members and the prescribed paths for communication with them.
This class is for Walmart suppliers selling in Walmart U.S. stores.

In order to produce valid reports, your company should be shipping to Walmart prior to taking this class. Since our classes do not use dummy data, if you are not shipping to Walmart, you will have no data with which to produce reports.
