Sales & Operations Planning

How to facilitate communication and decision-making to balance supply and demand
 

Solvay manages its S&OP process with DynaSys DSCP


"At the end of the day, centrally, we can enjoy an on time view of the demand, an on time view of the planning, the mid-term planning, the available capacities, the inventories." Christian Leger - Global Commercial & Supply Chain Director - Solvay


DynaSys DSCP supports your S&OP process

Providing visibility into strategic objectives during functional planning results in more effective sales, more efficient operations, optimized service levels and the right product mix. Key business units within a company, like sales, operations and finance, may develop functional plans without fully considering company-wide goals. Leading companies often adopt S&OP (Sales & Operations Planning), a solution and process that ensures business units make plans and decisions in the context of overall business objectives. S&OP is also referred to as IBP (Integrated Business Planning), particularly in the context of product management review and financial appraisal.

Key features

  • The Demand Planning module facilitates sales forecasting, taking into account field feedback and safety stock dimensioning that adapts based on forecast accuracy
  • The Supply Chain Planning modules, including Production, Distribution and Procurement Planning, translate validated requests into loads which may be tailored to capacities, whether they affect production, transportation or storage
  • Alternative Scenarios — When planning the overall supply chain, DynaSys DSCP helps identify critical situations. The alternative scenario tool then helps restore a balance between supply and demand while complying with corporate strategy
  • Shared vision document and the approved S&OP operations plan are produced to effectively communicate company strategy
  • Key Performance Indicators — The S&OP process and meeting draws on consistent and robust indicators, expressed in flexible units and add-on values including standard costs, sale prices and profit margin
