Advancing from SOP to True Business Integration
 
54:38
In many organizations, Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) has been implemented in an effort to more closely align the demand and supply sides of the company. Since strong Demand Planning capability is generally viewed as a key enabler of S&OP effectiveness, the Demand Planning function is often organizationally aligned with S&OP. Yet despite these initiatives, many companies struggle with both the Demand Planning process and its integration into a corporate-wide planning framework. In this live one-hour session, Dr. Mark Moon, Associate Professor at University of Tennessee, Knoxville—and author of the recent book Demand and Supply Integration: The Key to World Class Demand Forecasting—will provide useful tools for auditing and improving your organization’s planning capabilities including: • A framework for assessing the extent to which your S&OP process achieves actual Business Integration. He will look at what true Business Integration is, and examine how organizational structure, processes, and culture contribute to achieving this elusive goal. • A template for assessing your own Business Integration processes. You will have the opportunity to examine the key elements of your organization’s process design, structure, and corporate culture, and assess their current states relative to best practice. • A roadmap directing how to move from your current state of Business Integration to one that delivers a world class planning environment. The session will include a brief demonstration of how Forecast Pro serves as the foundation of an effective Demand Planning process which is essential for achieving true Business Integration.

Educational Webinar - Understanding Your Data: The Key to Better Forecasting
 
01:06:24
Business forecasters rely heavily on time series methods which generate an item’s forecast based on its past demand history.

It is difficult—if not impossible—to improve your forecasts without a solid understanding of the underlying components in your historical data. In this educational one-hour live Webinar, Eric Stellwagen, Vice President of Business Forecast Systems, will teach you how to recognize the different components in your demand history and explain which elements you can—and cannot—forecast effectively.
