Supply chain strategy.

Our consultant will work with your organization in extracting the relevant points of your business strategy and translate them into a comprehensive and result-oriented supply chain strategy.

We develop an implementation plan and support you with the practical execution in the area of S&OP (sales and operations planning) and IBP (integrated business planning), advanced planning system configuration, process and structure optimization.

Integrated Business Planning and S&OP

We provide strategic analysis, planning and change management direction as well as practical support to ensure an effective end-to-end sales & operations planning and integrated business planning process is in place.

By taking a forward-looking approach and integrating relevant financial KPI (key performance indicators), the process focuses on the actions required to achieve the targets set forward in the business plan.

For every step in the process – such as demand planning, supply planning, integrated reconciliation, pre-S&OP, S&OP– the inputs, activities, outputs and KPI are clearly defined. Adequate roles & responsibilities, escalation processes, levels of authority are established to ensure that the overall process delivers more value than the effort required running it.
