Futuristic supply chain – integrated planning approach
Supply chain planning is core to effective supply chain management of an organization. An integrated sales and operations planning (S&OP) plays a critical role in a company’s ability to match supply with demand fluctuations. This paper talks about equipping the organization towards the future of supply chain planning through digitization and analytical interventions. It also explores the possibilities of a hybrid model where transaction planning process could be outsourced while retaining the core decision making needed for effective S&OP process, thus delivering an undeniable competitive edge.
