Theme: Organizational Excellence in the Digital Age
The technological advances of the past decade have resulted in a new industrial revolution that’s often referred to as the fourth industrial revolution or Industry 4.0. It is a revolution driven by the exponential growth of disruptive technologies and the changes those technologies are bringing to the workplace, the workforce, and the markets that organizations serve. These changes require organizations of excellence to be more adaptable, more agile, and more innovative than ever before. The new landscape this establishes requires individuals and organizations as a whole to constantly learn new things and challenge past practices and assumptions. ASQ invites you to join the revolution, embrace the disruption, and take the first step in positioning your organization for excellence in the digital age.

The S&OP process is over 30 years old. Since then, market dynamics have significantly changed but the process has not, meaning there are shortcomings that need to be addressed to reflect today’s reality. These include having inadequate mechanisms to effectively manage demand for new products; not having a strategy to replace well-established core products that are now rapidly fading away; not having a strategy to deal with ever-increasing Supply Chain disruptions; and failing to adapt to new channels of distribution like eCommerce. In this session, we will show what’s lacking in many S&OP processes, with practical takeaways to bring your S&OP up to date and turn it into a driver of efficiency and growth.
Attendees will learn:
Why and how to manage supply chain disruptions within the S&OP process
How to optimize opportunities in the fast emerging eCommerce channel
How to capitalize on new products with S&OP and why core products are fading away faster, and what to do about it
