Sales and Operations Planning

The Risk

One of the biggest risks facing global manufacturing businesses is the failure to predict and manage demand accurately. This leads to a number of supply-side problems such as stock mismanagement, poor customer service, inaccurate capacity planning and the inability to balance demand and supply on a global scale.

The diversity of the problems facing an organisation and the volume of data that needs to be synthesised is enormous. For example, your marketing department may be launching a new product in multiple territories, sales are showing unexpected fluctuations, cash flow and stock levels are concerning the Finance Director and key operational assets require maintenance.

Solving these problems requires clear strategic vision. It also needs powerful S&OP tools with dynamic prescriptive capability and that is what I-Plan delivers.

It provides powerful modelling tools, which allow for effective planning based on multiple scenarios. In practice, this means that sales quotas and inventory plans can navigate the shifting balance between demand and supply on a global scale.
