Taking the next step in Connected Planning by expanding to S&OP​

See all our cases

Customer

One of Europe’s leading healthcare partners and distributor of medical equipment operating in 12 countries. The scope of this implementation was focused on the Nordics, covering 6 distribution centres and over 40.000 SKUs.

Challenges

  • Enrich the previously built Anaplan use cases (demand planning, supply planning, inventory management, S&EO) by connecting them with a new S&OP model
  • By doing so, the challenge arose to create a more accurate and longer-term visibility on the demand. This was to increase the ability to make data-driven decisions on the supply side​

Solution

We supported by:

  • Enriching demand on multiple levels in the product hierarchy
  • Tracking and running entire S&OP cycles by using an intuitive dashboard
  • Executing capacity simulations that enable us to create different groups of products with interchangeable capacity
  • Calculating impact on a high-level supply plan for the different groups of products

Results

Eliminated manual data processed and decreased time to run through the entire S&OP cycle​

Workflow process in Anaplan allowing multiple stakeholders to collaborate actively in a single environment​

Ability to spot gaps between demand and supply constraints in the long term.
