Abstract:Nowadays many organisations have to operate in an uncertain and fast changing environment, which is highly turbulent and volatile. This brings constraints and limitations and therefore requires a high amount of flexibility within organisations. This research has a focus on demand side uncertainty, the frequent and unpredictable changes in demand. The research has been carried out at a case company, a producer of fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) in the personal care industry. The problem statement analysed was “How should FMCG organisations deal with volatility of customers’ demand and its related costs within their supply chain?”. The goal of this research was to provide a better understanding of the impact of volatility on costs and to provide the case company with hands-on recommendations to become less dependent on the volatility of their customers’ demand.
