Top 10 myths of S&OP

leave a comment »

Last week JDA announced that they partner with Oliver Wight and have the OW IBP methodology integrated in their new software solution. They also partnered in the release of a white paper on the top 10 myths of S&OP.

You have to leave a lot of details to get to the white paper, so I’ll give you the top 5 they table together and you can decide for yourself if you want to go through the effort. Real knowledge sharing shouldn’t require this much information

First 5 of top 10 myths discussed:

1. Q: Who owns the S&OP process? A: The person responsible for the P&L

2. Q: And the next problem S&OP needs to solve today? A: S&OP is an aggregated monthly process, not daily

3. Q: There is too much strategy and not enough execution? A: Aggregated plans should be disaggregated to sku level if needed

4. Just look backwards: S&OP is fact based, assumption driven and looks forward

5. It’s all in the numbers: S&OP should be more assumption driven then number driven

Top 4 S&OP pitfalls according to Quintiq

leave a comment »

Quintiq is one of the many consultancies that has focus on advanced planning and S&OP. They released a whitepaper on their website in March 2011 about the top 4 S&OP pitfalls according to them. They are:

1. Going for a big bang

2. Attempting to excel with excel

3. Kicking off without the finance department

4. Not appointing a neutral coordinator

Judge for yourself if you agree with these four.  If your willing to leave your email you can get the whitepaper here, or watch a webcast ‘so you think your SS&OP is optimal?’

S&OP-IBP Whitepapers

leave a comment »

Last month http://georgepalmatier.com/ released a white paper called ‘IBP-S&OP executive level synopsis’. Although in 9 pages you can’t expect a lot of in-depth IBP knowledge, it’s a worthwhile read and definitely can provide you with a couple of one liners for in an elevator speech.

This and other white papers from the Oliver Wight fellows can be found here: http://www.georgepalmatier.com/white-papers-sop-ibp.html

Free S&OP ebook

with 2 comments

The people at http://www.kinaxis.com/ are pretty active in spreading Supply Chain and S&OP knowledge. They just released an e-book on S&OP, which can be downloaded for free if you’re willing to leave your email, company, role etc. It’s a very worthwhile read. Maybe the best thing about it is that is has a sense of humour.

You can get the S&OP ebook here: http://www.kinaxis.com/campaign/ebook-sop/

S&OP IE event January 2011

leave a comment »

On  Linkedin Lora Cecere, a partner at Altimeter group, shares a presso on S&OP which she gave during the IE event January 2011. Always better to have the explanation with it, but it is still a great S&OP reference
