WHAT IS OTB? Advanced Inventory Planning Skills

Blue Arrow Right  Inventory purchase budget based on sales plan (Target)

Blue Arrow Right Usually done at the category level, if necessary, you can drill down to sub-levels even down to SKU level

The open-to-buy formula will help you create forecasts for your OTB plan. The values in your open-to-buy are projections, so they may not be perfectly accurate.

But a sensible way to check your numbers is if your actual month-end inventory is within 5% of your prediction.

The component that makes the open to buy calculations difficult is the fact that the end of month and markdown values are based on forecast.

A good forecast requires excellent knowledge of the customer, market, store, competition and of course the product.

Part of creating an OTB budget involves planning inventory turnover. Turnover is a calculation that measures how fast you sell through inventory and need to replace it.

The quicker a retailer “turns” their inventory, the more they’ll need to buy. Also, quicker turns mean much higher profitability as well.
