Why Integrated Sales & Operations Planning?

                              Today, in Supply Chain planning across industries, there is a big gap in alignment between what the sales and merchant teams want to serve as demand and what the supply chain and operations teams can fulfill in terms of supply. These teams need support to reach a consensus between the various demand plans as well as between supply & demand. Our solution fits this need perfectly.


                              Demand Consensus
                              • Provides top-down & bottom-up forecasts for sales, marketing, and operational issues
                              • Analyze deviations between forecasts
                              • Incorporate price interventions & promotions
                              • Helps arrive at demand consensus for stakeholders
                              Demand-Supply Consensus
                              • Aligns demand-side dynamics & supply-side dynamics through three steps:
                                • Smoothen demand to meet supply
                                • Augment/prune supply
                                • Prune demand to meet constraints
                              • Drive consensus and then freeze the plan
                              Execution Monitoring
                              • Studies deviation between demand (as it emerges) and planned demand
                              • If deviation is vast – shape demand back to plan or take pre-emptive measures to cater to actual demand
                              • Generate early alerts to bring execution back to plan



                              Modular architecture can sit on top of any demand planning system and help planners create a consensus.
