Webinar takes place on 14 December 2010 from 03.00 until 03.30 PM (GET+1)

Quintiq, a provider of advanced planning and scheduling software (APS), and Involvation will host a webinar on Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP). The webinar is scheduled on Tuesday 14 December 2010 and will take about thirty minutes. During the seminar, you will learn about the maturity of S&OP and why many companies shun this subject.

Alfons Willemsen, partner at Involvation, will present the results of an S&OP study, executed by Involvation and the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. For this study, eighteen market leaders were interviewed from amongst others the chemical and telecom industry. During the webinar the following issues will be addressed:

  • research results on the maturity of S&OP;
  • comparison with other studies on this subject (Gartner and Aberdeen);
  • what should be the follow-up for an effective S&OP? and
  • what stops companies from addressing this issue?

Jos Braam, Senior Consultant at Quintiq, will chair a fictitious meeting on S&OP. He will show the possibilities that Quintiq's 'what-if' scenario offers. The following issues will be addressed:

  • developing a balance in stock and demand;
  • conversion of planning into financial planning;
  • how to deal with questions from senior managers?
  • real-time scenarios as effective decision making tools.
