FORECASTING AND S&OP

Service level Improvement, Waste reduction, Resource optimization

Context

Forecasting and S&OP are core components of Supply Chain Management, and can always be improved to the next level of performance

S&OP has to be a well-oiled process: accurate & efficient to take the best decisions based on the latest information. S&OP helps to align key stakeholders around a consensus plan to facilitate the decision-making process. Manual processes & spreadsheets are time-consuming with high risk of data inaccuracy.

Forizons strongly believes that digitalization will enhance your data accuracy, automate manual effort and provide a strong ‘buy in’ for your stakeholders.

From a full green field process design to a current process improvement, Forizons helps you to maximize the throughput of each step & improve the efficiency of your S&OP process in your organization.
