A properly implemented S&OP process routinely reviews customer demands and manufacturing resources, and 're-plans' capacity across an agreed horizon. Slim4 helps match up sales targets, Supply Chain forecasts and manufacturing capacity planning to deliver all-round S&OP.
Slim4 synchronises demand and supply by aligning inventory and production with end user demand. The demand forecasting functionality enables easy conversion of regional customer demand into factory planning. Using Slim4 as input for S&OP results in more informed meetings and better decisions.
