• Replenishment Planning: Generate replenishment orders, allocation plans, and inventory forecasts to ensure stores are adequately stocked with the right products at the right time.
• System Optimization: Continuously monitor and optimize the JDA E3 system performance, parameters, and configurations to improve replenishment accuracy and efficiency. Communicate processing issues and action appropriately to ensure minimal impact on business.
• Improve Customer Experience: Monitor out-of-stock occasions to employ changes in replenishment parameters to eliminate lost sales.
• Collaboration: Work closely with cross-functional teams, including other Merchandising teams, Supply Chain, and Store Operations, to align replenishment strategies with business goals and priorities.

• Store Clustering: Assess and support unique managed assortments across identified store clusters.
• Event-based replenishment: Build and implement programs to support critical seasons and events such as our Rental Season, Free Guitar weekends, and Upgrade your Sound™ events.
• Inventory Planning: Determine optimal inventory levels for each store based on demand forecasts, sales velocity, lead times, and store-specific factors.
• Process Improvement: Identify opportunities to streamline replenishment processes, enhance system capabilities, and drive efficiency gains in replenishment planning and execution.
• Performance Monitoring: Monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) related to replenishment accuracy, inventory turns, service levels, and stockouts to assess system performance and identify areas for improvement.
• Issue Resolution: Investigate and resolve any issues or discrepancies related to replenishment orders, inventory discrepancies, or system errors in a timely manner.
• Documentation: Maintain documentation of system configurations, processes, and best practices related to JDA E3 replenishment planning.
• Reporting: Prepare and present regular reports on replenishment performance, inventory levels, and key metrics to management and cross-functional teams.
