Session: Making better decisions by dealing with uncertainties in S&OP
Supply chain planning in general, and S&OP in particular, happens under a lot of uncertainty, both on the demand and the supply side. What we often see is that this uncertainty is denied/overlooked in making plans, leading to a plan that is not fit for purpose. We will present an approach that incorporates uncertainty in the decision making process, leading to more robust plans that guarantee your expected service levels.
- …understand how uncertainties influence the quality of their plans
- …understand how smart algorithms can give insight in the consequences of these uncertainties
- …and how they can mitigate these uncertainties
