Join the FuturMaster webinar on the 11th of October : Moving towards strategic and cost driven supply planning
The purpose of supply planning is to determine how to organise and run the supply chain to better satisfy future consumer demand. Generally speaking, companies would focus on the operational side first: decide how many products to replenish, make or supply in the next days or weeks, in order to provide an effective and applicable plan and then address the main difficulties and challenges for planners. However, planning processes that focus on more strategic issues have greater economic stakes.
In the webinar “Moving towards Strategic and Cost-driven Planning”, we will present the specificities of these two types of planning, including the importance of integrating actual cost in order to facilitate strategic decision making. This cost-driven approach enables companies to drive decision-making not only on operational objectives (level of service, inventory, use of resources, etc.) but also on the associated financial impacts (cost-to-serve).
We will also illustrate how to ensure the vertical integration of decisions from the strategic to the operational levels.
