Sales & Operations Planning
Balance Supply and Demand with Sales & Operations Planning
Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) is a core business process used to preserve margin while satisfying market demand. Because every decision impacts others, formal sales and operations planning between marketing, sales, operations, and finance is the key to supply chain success.
One Number S&OP
In order to build consensus around a “one-number” S&OP approach, you need more accurate and visible information that can be used for sales forecasting, demand management, statistical analysis, and sales, operations and supply decision making. Each user must be able to understand the plan from their perspective.
Web-enabled sales and operations planning (S&OP) is becoming increasingly necessary due to constant market changes, increased competition and pressure to deliver the right products at the right time. The Atlas Planning Suite leverages the Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) process by seamlessly linking the Planning Portal with the Demand Management Engine, John Galt’s industry-leading demand planning solution. A truly collaborative supply chain network closes the gaps between design, engineering, production, sales, and marketing both inside and outside the enterprise, reducing miscommunications and stabilizing long-term demand plans.
