Successful S&OP planning means an agile ‘one-business’ approach that delivers ongoing competitiveness and improved overall profit. With Optimity you will give your business the tool it needs to align multiple teams, focus the business towards a common strategy, and ensure synchronization of all parts of the business.
The Sales and Operations Plan needs to incorporate the current sales plan, production plan, inventory plan, customer commitment, new product development plan and the resulting financial plan.
With Optimity, everyone works from the same set of information. You can continuously evaluate the trade-offs between service level and cost, and synchronize sourcing and distribution to ensure that all areas of the business are working in support of overall business.
True visibility for your team – detailed description of current state of the entire supply chain. Prescribed plan to meet all demand. Prediction of future needs and plans for forecasted demand.
Integrate improved statistical forecasting and collaborative demand planning with your sales & operations planning to achieve a consensus forecast that is agreed to by everyone.
Make sure that all plans are best for business – supporting your strategy across all time frames, and taking into account all constraints.
