S&OP and Forecasting

S&OP and Forecasting

Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) methodologies and forecasting techniques used in our clients businesses have usually evolved over a long time. We can influence these areas in the following ways;

S&OP

We leave the design of S&OP management processes to other consultants like The Oliver Wight Company. However we can ensure that any of our design and optimisation techniques are appropriately integrated into any of your operations planning systems.

Forecasting

We advocate minimising wasted effort caused by multiple and disconnected forecasts within a business. To this end we continue to research the latest thinking in demand driven operations management, particularly Flowcasting and Demand Driven MRP & DRP.

In any case we can work within, and help optimise, any aggregate planning and forecasting process through all nodes of a supply chain, from raw material suppliers through to the retail shop.
