A Fresh Approach to Sales and Operations Planning

Speaker: Erik Bush – СЕО of Demand Driven Technologies company, USA. Before joining DDTech, he served as Vice President of IBM.

  • Throughout the manufacturing and distribution industries, companies have found the traditional approach to S&OP challenging to implement since it requires a robust management system and substantial organizational commitment to achieve results. Many companies have abandoned their S&OP process as they find the effort to align demand, supply, and capacity plans are undermined by changing market conditions and forecast variance.

DDS&OP prioritizes exception management and responsiveness which focuses management on business priorities.
