Sales and operations planning is the set of vital communications and decision making processes for developing a company game plan that balances market demand with resource capability. A working Sales and Operations Planning process provides a way to draw out functionally conflicting objectives and resolve them so as to develop a true manufacturing/marketing contract, integrate all functions of the business by developing a "single set of numbers" from which all other plans and schedules can be developed, and provide a forum for evaluating company performance.
Refer to the link under "Education Courses" for information about our tailoring processes. However, topics in this workshop normally include appropriate selections from the following:
to develop a single game plan
The DevSOP - integrating new product development planning
a multi-tiered S&OP process
