Sales & Operations Planning: The Process Industry

(PresseBox) (Berlin, ) The transparency of planning processes is in high demand. Operation planning methods must be aligned to global needs and gaps between operational and strategic plans must be closed. Especially chemical as well as pharmaceutical industries must ensure to meet these expectations to fulfil and supply orders on time. Meet leading companies at IQPC’s conference Sales & Operations Planning in the Process Industry,
23 – 25 April 2012 in Cologne to discuss new concepts and forecast methods.


The only S&OP event in Europe focusing on chemical and pharmaceutical industries offers case studies and networking opportunities with leading pharmaceutical and chemical companies, such as Pfizer, BASF SE, Lonza, Daiichi Sankyo, Merck, and many more.
Frequent networking breaks throughout the conference ensure enough room for meeting and connecting with the relevant attendees.

Key topics are the following:

• Organisational S&OP design in business units; e.g. through improved meeting cycles
• Operational and strategic influences for a tactical S&OP process
• Trends in demand and supply planning – improving working capital and forecasts
• S&OP - an outlook; e.g. on emerging markets

On Monday, 23 April 2012, conference participants may attend four interactive workshops:

• The right organisational design for S&OP
• Challenges for material management in a multi-plant environment
• How to run S&OP with SAP’s Advanced Planner and Optimizer
• Portfolios for innovative and harmonised forecasting processes
