Sales and operations planning (S&OP) is an integrated business management process that enables a company to continually balance and manage the supply chain supply and demand to achieve its strategic and tactical business objectives. More and more business leaders are relying on S&OP to align and improve decision making across the disparate parts of their organization. And, many companies are still adopting and improving the techniques and tools that they use to improve S&OP.

So this year, we conducted an S&OP Survey of key decision makers to learn more about their challenges, concerns and expectation for 2012. Business leaders from a variety of companies and industries were polled. Here’s what we learned:

  • Many companies lack the metrics needed to capture the benefits from S&OP
  • Scenario and sensitivity analysis is the tool of choice for S&OP planners who understand that sales forecasts are imperfect
  • More companies are beginning to collaborate with suppliers and customers to improve S&OP
  • For many companies, point-of-sale (POS) data may be the key to effective sales and operations planning
