Dell Supply Chain

Dynamic forecasting for low-attach rate parts

As an industry leader in Supply Chain, Dell is continuously working to refine its parts forecast and drive a lean yet robust supply chain. Our processes are especially tested during times of supply / demand volatility. The perpetual fluctuation of demand and supply based on market cycles and supplier commits is a constant challenge in the world of forecasting.

The goal of this project is to develop a dynamic approach to forecasting and staging our supply with a keen focus on parts with low attach-rates & high volatility. Parts with low attach-rates are especially difficult to forecast as signal volatility in any part of the supply chain can quickly lead to excess inventory and stock-outs in other parts. This project will drive long-term supply chain planning strategy that affects the entire part lifecycle. The project will allow students the opportunity to learn an industry-leading demand / supply planning process and make a real impact to a global organization.


  • Identify immediate areas of improvement with preliminary focus on regional forecasting process for low attach-rate parts
  • Investigate how volatility impacts STBL and customer deliveries utilizing our current DSI model
  • Determine a threshold of volatility in which to drive an alternative method to demand forecast and/or supply staging
  • Explore the effectiveness of alternative lifecycles (e.g., ‘one-time buy’, early lock) for low attach / highly volatile items to help prevent liability at EOL
  • Evaluate if alternative supply methods (min/max, dynamic DSI based on seasonality, EOCQ/EOFQ) can potentially improve continuity of supply
  • The project will incorporate a review of our current regional and global processes as well as recommendations for improvements in our forecasting process.
