Improving Service at a Lower Cost – the Power of Moving from S&OP to Integrated Business Planning (IBP)

This is the second in our webinar series for the Industrial Sector exploring ways to measure and drive improvement in business performance. In the first webinar entitled “Does your supply chain give you a competitive edge?” held on 6th December 2018, Oliver Wight Managing Associates Kirsty Braines and Paul Archer guided webinar participants through a series of questions to benchmark their supply chains’ performance. Around half the participants recorded most aspects of their supply chain performance on a par with the average performance level for the Industrial Sector. The detailed poll results led us to the conclusion that whilst these businesses have a level of control, the opportunity is to improve service at a lower cost. For another 30% of respondents the webinar revealed that their supply chain is performing at a level which puts them at a disadvantage, so for these participants the opportunity and urgency is even greater.

In this next webinar we will tackle the question; how to improve service at a lower cost. Given the results of webinar 1, it is clear that a traditional S&OP process with its focus on demand and supply volume balancing, over a relatively short-term horizon, will only take you so far. An S&OP process is not designed to bring functions together to tackle more strategic questions such as:

  • What service do our customers require and value?
  • Do service requirements vary by market segment?
  • Is our business set up to deliver such service requirements at an optimal cost?
  • If not, how can we address this?
