Aberdeen Group And Logility Present “Streamlining The S&OP Process” Webcast

Logility Inc., a leading supplier of collaborative solutions to optimize the supply chain, and Aberdeen Group, a global, full-service, multi-channel marketing services firm with deep expertise in developing research-based technology marketing content, will present an educational webcast where attendees will learn how to streamline their sales and operations planning (S&OP) process. Bryan Ball, vice president and principal analyst, supply chain management, Aberdeen Group, will explore the latest findings from his report “S&OP: A Critical Process for Superior Performance” while Logility’s Karin Bursa will share insights drawn from helping companies streamline and accelerate their S&OP process for more than 15 years. This live webcast, “ Streamlining the Sales and Operations Planning Process”, is hosted by APICS and will begin Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at 11:00 am ET.

The monthly S&OP meeting is a critically important, high-level decision-making activity that sets the overall direction for the company for strategic, operational and tactical activities. According to Aberdeen best-in-class companies have nearly a 10 percent improvement in customer service rates and a 38 day cash-to-cash cycle advantage over all other businesses. S&OP cannot be completed effectively without reliable, accurate information. The S&OP team must have up-to-date information regarding future time-phased demand, production capabilities, inventory status, and any limitations on resource availability to realize these best-in-class benefits.

In this APICS webcast attendees will gain valuable insight into the best practices of leading companies and how they develop their world-class S&OP processes. The event will discuss real-world examples of how companies in various industries have improved their operations through the use of advanced supply chain management software as the foundation for the S&OP process.
