S&OP Systems = Spreadsheet Planning with Lipstick


S&OP has become very popular over the past few years because it somewhat eases planning through better user interface than traditional spreadsheets, availability of built-in reports and analytics. However, what is inside your typical S&OP system is no better than a spreadsheet logic!

Automated Order Processing and Proactive Inventory Management

Speaker: Irina Rosca, Director of Supply Chain Operations, Helix

Organizations need to focus on demand driven supply planning, utilizing real time information on customer orders from all marketplaces (e-commence, Amazon - or other online retailers, and point of sale data from brick and mortar).

This is especially important for new product releases, in store programs or promotions (sales, end caps, PDQ. etc) or online promotions (company run or 3rd party). Depending on total supply chain lead time, not having real time visibility and analysis of this information can significantly affect sales and the bottom line.
