OMS to present at Apics 2014 in New Orleans
The ability to have visibility into resource requirements from a planning perspective is critical to large, multi-location steel fabricators. Like delivery or quality metrics, financial performance is equally critical in determining the sustainability required to invest your time in supplier development. Is your supplier capitalizing on investments to enhance operational performance, reduce inventory and improve efficiency? In essence, are they generating results?
Sales and Operations Planning is an integrated business management process that provides visibility into future resource requirements. S&OP provides a "scrubbed" analysis of customer forecasts, opportunities and market data for 3-18 months in the pipeline, allowing company leaders to reliably allocate financial and labor resources to meet customer demand.
For O'Neal Manufacturing Services, the S&OP process began in 2013 and has developed into a unique, customized solution that recently helped land a $15MM access equipment fabrication project.
Along with S&OP consultants Dan Marino and Anthony Zampello, OMS Strategic Business Applications Manager Jamie Cochran will be presenting the case study at the APICS conference in New Orleans this week. APICS is the leading professional association for supply chain and operations management.
