Supply chain proﬁtability for superior business performance
The S&OP evolution
A Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) process has as its foundation the cross functional integration of several business functions and is driven by the need to align these functions behind one company vision in the most cost effective way. In this wayvalue can be created so that an organisation can become more competitive and more profitable. S&OP is often defined as a continuous structured process that balances supply and demand through continuous interactions to create an integrated set of plans. It provides continuous monitoring of performance against plan and a disciplined way of responding to changes. Based on that, the majority oforganisations recognise the importance of S&OP and have some sort of process in place, although often it remains a tactical tool and / or is poorly executed. Today’s S&OP is about empowering people and functions to collaborate together to create visible decision making on current and future challenges whilst always keeping in sight the company objectives. The complexity of supply chains as organisationscontinue to expand across continents is also growing and traditional push models are no longer meeting requirements. The implementation of a demand driven pull model requires the input from many functions, across several organisations and possibly countries and has turned a simple 4 step process into a all encompassing and sophisticated 9 step process. Today’s market environment as well asorganisations’ drive for leadership in supply chain is bringing new requirements to the table.
