The overall aim of the S&OP process is to be a vehicle for decision making and arrive at a game plan to manage and allocate the firm’s resources to meet the needs of customers and grow the business. A key driver for effective S&OP is demand planning and forecasting, which many companies find extremely challenging. Demand Planning and Forecasting drives the Demand Review meeting. Forecasts must therefore be assessed to ensure that they are realistic and unbiased. Gaps between supply and demand, and between forecasts and plans, must be closed to maximize revenue and profit, whilst risks and opportunities need to be visible to develop corporate strategy. If your team struggles to achieve an effective demand review process driven by accurate forecasts, this session is for you.
