Align Demand, Supply, Financial and Execution Plans

The full value from supply chain planning is realized when the different plans are aligned to the business objectives and balanced into an integrated set of plans for the business. This means the demand plan is balanced with the revenue and supply plans; supply plans are aligned with the demand, profitability and working capital plans; and the financial top-down plans align with the bottom-up supply chain plans.

Questions we’ll be tackling at this year’s conference include:

  • How do I bridge the gaps between execution, planning and strategy?
  • How do we make the trade-off decisions across the end-to-end supply chain considering the business objectives and supply chain constraints to achieve optimal profitability?
  • How do we integrate our supply chain planning across the end-to-end supply chain?
  • How do we reduce costly reactive mode of operations in the short-term horizon?
