Steven shares some exciting insights into Sales & Planning his vast experience & his journey of becoming an influencer within IBP, S&OP and SIOP in the article below.
A little over fifteen years ago, working as the Master Scheduler at the Trubyte Division of Dentsply International, I was approached by the VP to rollout an S&OP process for the business unit. The VP mentioned about reading an article on S&OP and felt it would be a beneficial endeavour to get alignment on planning for the division’s two production sites, five distribution centres, and one hundred thousand parts. Being early in my supply chain career, I thought this should not be too bad to do. As the business’s system tech guru and naive about the requirements for a successful S&OP, I focused on building the different key performance indicator (KPI) tools for the VP’s objectives thinking they would the primary requirements for each of the meetings and everything else would fall into place. Over the first few months, I quickly learned that it was much more than supplying reports and data. After this realization, I transitioned to working with the VP to focus more on the forward-looking cross-functional actions needed to achieve the organization’s top goals, getting functional leadership involvement from his team and having his support for holding individuals accountable for their deliverables. The S&OP processes eventually contributed to the division’s sales growth and all-time records for both customer service levels and inventory turns. With these achievements, I was nominated for Dentsply’s annual “Above & Beyond” award given to an individual that performed beyond the expectations of their role.
Opening day 1 of the summit with a Key Note Presentation – ‘GENERATING A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE THROUGH IBP, THE NEXT GENERATION OF S&OP’. With today’s market dynamics, the pace of technical innovation, and changing corporate structures, how can organizations attain internal and external alignment across functional areas, geographical regions, key customers, and suppliers to deliver its objectives? A key driver will be to move from the Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) of decades ago to a more mature Integrated Business Planning (IBP) process. Is your company preparing for this movement or may it get displaced by this industry shift? Attendee major takeaways will include;
Joining the panel discussion for ‘S&OP SYNCHRONIZATION: PEOPLE, PROCESS AND TECHNOLOGY’ with an analysis of key areas;
