If you run a manufacturing company and would like better customer service with less inventory and more predictable performance, please look at the consulting services, workshops and seminars, books and educational material here. 

My consulting services include implementation guidance and focused counseling once the new methods are "on the air" in the following areas:  MRPII/ERP, S&OP, forecasting and master scheduling, as well as lean manufacturing. 

My books on software selection and software functionality are the standards in the field. 

If you are interested in more effective Sales and Operations Planning, forecasting and demand planning, or master scheduling, or in achieving better integration between your planning functions and lean planning and execution, please explore this site.  

Or join me and your fellow managers, forecasters, planners, and business leaders when I make my presentation at this year’s Foresight Practitioner Conference:
