See our case study on Goodyear for some additional insights.
OPG offers leading edge educational tools in advanced S&OP processes. Our educational materials are available in On-Line virtual workshops and in In-Person live workshop form. The introductory course described on the S&OP education page has proven to be a useful tool in proving the need for demand-driven S&OP among people from functional areas outside Supply Chain Management and for non-S&OP professionals.
OPG has implemented and helped to enhance demand-driven S&OP in many companies, including several large Global manufacturers and many US manufacturers. The task of becoming demand-driven is seemingly a daunting one. In the end, it is more counter-intuitive than difficult to accomplish.
Our process design tools will "fast track" your journey. Our insights into advanced market-savvy S&OP will significantly improve the robustness of your process design.
Implementation should take about 6 months for each business unit within an enterprise. Often, companies actually take years and go through many fits and re-starts. OPG's approach is to adopt a well-defined and disciplined implementation management process to manage the SIX DRIVER's of the transformation to becoming demand-driven.
Becoming Demand-driven generates significant benefits. The several firms we have worked with have experienced two key improvements;
Being demand-driven is more easily understood by what it is not. It is not
Demand-driven enterprises have a strong Customer-centric culture throughout the organization from senior management to fork truck drivers.
Demand-driven S&OP implements your business strategy. Inside this market-savvy form of S&OP, the operational strategies including the Value Proposition and the Go To Market strategy, are formed and implemented.
Properly segmenting the market into Value Segments will greatly enhance operational strategy formation and implementation. Our Value Segmentation approach is introduced in our "Introductory Course to Demand -driven S&OP Implementation".
