The organization of the model formats the information for maximum visibility of the current situation and over 20 weeks into the future. Everything about the model is arranged to make it easy to change scheduling parameters and try different demand or supply scenarios. Complex or simple situations can be tested, solved, and saved if need be. Calculating potential scenarios into the future gives the planner insights into when they need to start preparing and acting to mitigate potential shortages or other problems. Think of it like a radar being used to track a hurricane coming onshore towards your home.
