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.

With the help of FuturMaster’s local presence in Singapore, they implemented 4 modules within 5 months: Demand Planning for Domestic Business, Demand Planning for Exports, Daily Distribution Planning, Weekly Supply Planning.

We try to adhere to the principals of ‘just-in-time’ production and never over-stocking, but it’s a fine balance optimising the process and avoiding stopping production because of missing parts.
