The benefits of Sales and Operations Planning, and its evolved, more sophisticated form, Integrated Business Planning, have long been demonstrated, but a number of more “traditional” manufacturing & distribution based organisations are struggling to successfully deploy S&OP and IBP.
There is a growing number of avant garde deployments in non-manufacturing environments that are yielding significant benefits. These non-manufacturing organisations are in a fortunate position; they can learn from the experience of peers in the manufacturing sector, and avoid the pitfalls, thus reducing the time to benefit.
In turn, manufacturing companies can look to the implementation in non-manufacturing industries for lessons in taking their IBP process to the next step. This white paper examines the practises that will aid sustainable improvement in any business, in any industry.
