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

It is important to identify the business areas that can most benefit from the use of these new tools and to understand where IoT and analytic technologies fit into your manufacturing organization’s business processes. To achieve that you not only need the right solutions, but consider the cultural impact on your organization as IT blends more and more with traditional engineering and business disciplines.
