Sales & Operations Planning

Sales &Operations Planning

Overview

Sales and operations planning (S&OP) is an integrated management process to steer the business. Through S&OP process the demand and supply can be balanced at volume level. S&OP becomes the linking pin for business planning and the detailed operations planning. Organizations practicing S&OP successfully will have synchronization of all the plans such as demand plan, supply plan, inventory plans etc. and other key resources at leadership level. By not having S&OP process in place, leadership spent all the operational issues in the strategy review meetings. This will create problem both at strategy level and operational level leaving ineffective and misaligned meetings.
