Achieving Production Planning Excellence

Anticipate. Simulate. Optimise. Execute.

For a manufacturer, the goal of effective supply chain planning is to meet your customer requirements and balance production resources whilst maximising revenue and profit.

Customer orders and forecasts provide visibility of what customers want to buy. In a complex manufacturing environment, the challenge is to fulfill that demand on time and in full whilst simultaneously optimising your capacity and inventory.

Many organisations focus on short-term scheduling and expediting in order to fulfill customer requirements. They get orders out of the door on time, but at what cost? Paying for overtime, premium freight for urgently required components, un-economical batch sizes and constant disruption to the plan. This cycle of fire-fighting not only reduces profit but limits their ability to capitalise on new sales opportunities and product launches. Put simply, they do not know if their supply chain can cope with any additional customer requirements.

Best In Class manufacturing organisations know that effective Production Planning is the key to achieving this combination of outstanding customer service and optimisation of resources. Creating a robust and achievable plan by using the right tools and planning techniques puts them firmly in control of their supply chain planning activity.

Getting Started with Sales and Operations Planning

What are the fundamentals for delivering robust S&OP?

Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) and Integrated Business Planning (IBP) are words that most people are familiar with. This is understandable because they are the glue that binds together the effective manufacturing and distribution organisation. It aligns key resources with business strategy, steers the organisation through its ever-changing environment and is crucial for unlocking significant business potential.

Many organisations we talk to at DynaSys are still in the early stages of S&OP. Some are still struggling to get it off the ground. Some have lost the energy to propel it beyond a basic process and others have not yet even started the journey.

For S&OP to be effective and deliver real value, it is critical to get the right people involved, establish the process and support it all with the right system. If any of these elements are missing, the whole process can become just another meaningless meeting with little benefit to the wider organisation. At DynaSys, we enable organisations to become an Effective Enterprise by providing world-class planning systems that support their S&OP process

Hosted by Gary Shaw, DynaSys Business Consultant

First and foremost, Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) or Integrated Business Planning (IBP), as it is becoming known, is a process that is driven by people. Without the right sponsorship, communication, structure and incentives it simply will not deliver the maximum benefits to your organisation.

However, in order for people to make the right decisions within S&OP, there needs to be accurate information readily available to them. The latest demand forecasts, capacity data and Executive summaries have to be presented in a way that is meaningful to senior management and truly models your organisation's environment.

Scenario Planning: Managing Uncertainty

Hosted by Gary Shaw, DynaSys Business Consultant

Being able to understand the consequences of a change in demand or supply is critical to ensure you are well prepared to respond to it effectively. "What-if?" scenario planning capabilities are a key requirement of your supply chain planning process if you want to take advantage of opportunities and mitigate risk.

Typical questions to be answered are:

      • Can we meet this sales opportunity and still satisfy our normal demand?
      • What is the impact on customer service if I have to shut down a production line?

This 30 minute webinar will discuss the topic of “What If?” scenario planning and also demonstrate how DynaSys Demand and Supply Chain Planning allows you to quickly and simply run your scenarios and see the impact across your end to end supply chain.
