Successfully aligning daily sales processes and supply chain operations to achieve an optimal balance is an ongoing challenge for manufacturing organizations. Recognizing the need to adapt to today’s dynamic, customer-driven business environment, Blount International – a global manufacturer of outdoor industrial and power equipment – embarked on a journey to build a best-practice planning process using SAP Integrated Business Planning for sales and operations.
Attend this webinar to see how Blount evolved its sales and operations planning (S&OP) process to be demand-driven. You’ll get an inside look at the steps Blount is taking to reduce inventory and improve service levels, including how it moved away from a collection of manufacturing-centric spreadsheets and implemented an integrated system that drives demand from the customer through all nodes of the demand network.
Register to learn how to:
• Increase visibility of demand through all nodes of the supply chain
• Establish inventory stocking strategies that buffer variability
• Assess the impact of demand and inventory on supply capacity
• Drive continuous improvement in your planning process
