Online PR News – 06-June-2013 – Johor Bahru – Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) is a powerful decision making tool for business executives as well as line managers.

According to Tom Wallace, “S&OP enables the company’s managers to view the business holistically and gives them a window into the future”.

Positive results that companies have gained from S&OP include hard benefits:

3. improved teamwork and
4. better decision making.

The value to any company of balancing supply and demand has long been understood. When we add volume and mix to this equation, we get the four fundamentals needed for effective business balance.

For those companies grappling with these 4 fundamentals, S&OP can provide excellent benefits. S&OP’s role is to balance supply and demand at the volume level. Companies who do a good job at this level find much less problem at balancing the supply and demand at mix level, thereby reducing inventory, improving customer service and improving manufacturing efficiencies.
