10.45 S&OP - The implementation of Arla’s tactical decision making process

Over the last three years Arla has successfully developed and implemented a global monthly S&OP decision making process, that by Arla’s CEO Peder Tuborgh is referred to as “the pulse of Arla”. There has been a massive change process in both business processes but also in building new global IT supportive SAP APO tools.

14.15 Workshop - How to further improve your S&OP

Facitilator: Senior Partner, Implement Consulting Group

Debate regarding challenges, opportunities and actions to be taken for each different maturity level in S&OP. The participants will be divided into the five stages related to maturity levels in S&OP.

Stage 1: React.

Sales is leading. The focus is on developing a feasible operational plan to meet sales orders.

Stage 2: Anticipate.

Focus on matching demand and supply volumes by optimum forecasting and supply response to demand.

Stage 3: Integrate.

While Stages 1 and 2 have an internal focus on balancing volumes, this stage focuses on enabling the shift to an external focus by integrating information flows.

Stage 4: Collaborate

Focus is on profitability. More business functions are involved, looking at both the logistical and financial impact of decisions.

Stage 5: Orchestrate

Demand-sensing and even demand-shaping to get optimum alignment of supply chain decision-making with business strategy.
