Just over 4 years ago Meggitt launched its dedicated aerospace aftermarket division, Services & Support. Representing a complete portfolio of Meggitt product highlighted an urgent need to integrate group-wide ERP systems and build a central customer led sales forecasting tool. Onepoint was asked to enhance a prototype Customer Led Forecasting tool by building additionalfunctionality.
There was also a need to bolster front-end performance, due to the high volume of data needed by the customer.
A more robust and performant system, capable of swiftly planning and predicting the revenue, budgeting and future sales of all global customers,was required.
The Meggitt Customer Led Forecasting (CLF) Application is a sales and production forecasting tooldesigned to accurately predict sales by customer, segment, sales site and/or product type,by processing huge amounts of sales, customer and parts data.
Using a simple SQL server to handle data processing and preparation, MongoDB at the backend and a web-application UI using React and Meteor at the front end, the CLF system groupstogether parts and customers, based on revenue, to reduce the amount of data points that need to be manually predicted. It identifies high revenue customers and low-yielding goods, improving the accuracy of business critical decisions for the sales and operations teams.
The UI web application provides an agile interface to help drill down and aggregate data. With this reactive-view of the data, any changes made to underlying data is immediately reflected in the forecast, so that the sales teamreceives accurate predictions at any given time.
The system is also designed to generate real-time reports comparing plan vs actual.
The Meggitt CLF system is proving to be an invaluable tool for senior management, sales finance and operations teams. It enables greater transparency and faster decision making with its ability to provide improved forecasting accuracy based on historic transactions and customer data.
