A properly implemented S&OP process routinely reviews customer demand and supply resources and 're-plans' quantitatively across an agreed rolling horizon. S&OP is not difficult but you need a tool to get consensus. That is exactly what Slim4 is meant for.
Slim4 synchronises demand and supply by aligning inventory and production with the 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.
