Capacity Planning and S&OP
Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) is the process that brings together the supply and demand plans of a business over the mid-to-long term, identifying areas of threat, opportunity & constraint. Thus allowing a forum where they can be analysed as a business & resolved as a business.
S&OP should also focus on all other aspect of the business, from financials, to engineering, to commercial, NPD and of course the business strategy.
