Author: Elena Del Valle, Manufacturing CIO

Use AI in S&OP Meetings? Wait! What?!?

Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) meetings are an essential part of business operations in which sales and operational plans are aligned with overall business goals. However, these meetings are time-consuming, mind-numbing, and prone to human error. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems fall short in supporting decision-making proactively. Modeling this amount of data in spreadsheets is over.

Business today is not like yesterday. Challenges are different and faster-paced. The world and our supply chain change daily. You can’t do the same thing and expect better results. In an increasingly competitive landscape, adapting to new technologies is crucial for staying ahead. 

Incorporate Artificial Intelligence (AI) into the S&OP process to make more informed decisions based on real-time, data-driven insights and recommendations. To compete and win, you need a solid AI tool to support you in S&OP.
