"Is S&OP Part of Your Supply Chain? You Bet It Is"

Supply and demand planning is a fundamental process that spans the entire value chain. Keys to success including balancing resources and requirements, effective project management, and business rules that measure and improve productivity. Sessions in the Plan learning path will help you maximize inventory, capacity, and production operations for precise demand management; optimize resources; and align supply chain and financial plans for bottom-line results.

The full supply chain of a company must start with a strategy and a high level plan. It must then be dropped down to each subsequent level for tactical and operational plans to support the strategy. As it drops each level, it involves more detail with a shorter horizon. This presentation will show attendees the connection and relevance of each facet of the supply chain from strategy to planning to execution closing the loop back to strategy. It will cover how demand planning varies depending on the purpose and horizon. It will cover how resource planning varies from very few, high level-long lead time areas down to the execution on the shop floor [whether your own or your producer. It will show how inventory, planned properly, is a valuable resource and minimize its risk. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of the FULL supply chain.
