Sales & Operations Planning

FuturMaster Sales & Operations Planning consolidates data relating to demand forecasting, business planning, production and supply in a single tool to anticipate and report on risks (reduced operations, risk of breakage or over-stocking, site capacity limitations) and to ensure aligned and collaborative decision making.

RESPONDING TO YOUR CHALLENGES:

The Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) process enables a company to align their business requirements (including new projects and opportunities) with the capability of their supply chain.
A combination of quantitative and qualitative data at each stage of this process (product ranges; S&OP families; specific time buckets, i.e. month, quarter, term or year) provides visibility of the complete operation in the medium to long term and facilitates analysis of current and projected performance.

An efficient S&OP process enables you to effectively monitor your business plans and meet your sales and EBITDA targets.

S&OP Process

This solution is designed to:

  • anticipate periods of increased commercial activity
  • identify issues related to resource and capacity constraints
  • test various scenarios (re-schedule a launch, test launch of a new line, a new site, etc.)
  • make the right investment decisions in response to planned change
  • assess the value of a promotion or a business opportunity
  • validate authorised production and distribution plans by sharing data with stakeholders

FuturMaster Sales & Operations Planning enables you to align operational plans with strategy by consolidating data related to budgeting, finance, marketing, sales and supply chain.

Major objectives are being achieved, firstly through definition of supply and production plans. Secondly, through the automatic replenishment of subsidiaries to satisfy their sales forecasts.

The high level of automation was important due to the thousands of SKU’s that were being forecasted and the erratic nature of corrugated demand patterns. In addition, the sales force had previously not been engaged in the forecasting process, so it was essential that the system focused their attention on the major lines that required their input.
