Sales and Operations Planning Part One: Identifying and Forecasting Demand


An effective sales and operations planning game plan results in fewer stock-outs, shorter delivery lead-times, higher on-time shipping percentages, a manageable amount of expediting, and improved customer service. Several guidelines are suggested to improve a firm's sales and operations planning process and the effectiveness of each product's game plan. This is an excerpt from the book Managing Your Supply Chain Using Microsoft Navision.

Surprise demands can cause shortages that impact customer service or production and result in expediting. Some sources of demand may need interpretation or alternative ways to express the demand, as illustrated in the following examples. Customer Schedules . Customer schedules represent a combination of sales orders (in the near-term) and forecast (in the Read More

Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part 1: Tutorial


Flow manufacturing leverages techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day, in any given quantity including the "quantity of one" (i.e., through the so-called mixed-model production), while keeping inventories to a minimum and shortening cycle times in order to quickly fill customer orders.

mrp forecasting techniques  (master production schedule) and MRP planned orders are pushed out to the factory floor and in stock. External suppliers also work to support planned production, while materials management often relies on maintaining sufficient inventory, using a make-to-stock (MTS) rather than make-to-order (MTO) or assemble-to-order (ATO) approach. In traditional manufacturing, the time and cost of changeover to produce different products is high, as are the costs of inventory, planning, and expediting. To recap, in Read More

Production Management Research


Primarily due to rapid development of technology in the past thirty years, the market structure throughout the world has changed considerably. Local markets have become accessible to foreign manufacturers, who are able to perform well in their newly established territories in part due to their superior application of technology. In this light, most companies, including small and medium size, have embedded globalization in their expansion strategies, consistently seeking for new markets abroad. Consequently, local manufacturing companies are facing global competition, forcing them to adopt new concepts with respect to people, process and technologies. This document describes these approaches to production planning in detail as well outlines a software solution. The software solution (Production/3) combines both pull and push techniques and enables small to medium size organizations to fully automate their production system while retaining their investment in their legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.

The Essential Supply Chain


Supply Chain Management (SCM) once viewed as a way to obtain a competitive advantage, is now perceived as a logical and necessary extension of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). The reasons: First, traditional ERP systems lack the advanced planning tools necessary for companies to respond to an increasingly competitive business environment. Second, advances in computing power and data transmission enable disparate entities to communicate efficiently and at a low cost. Finally, vendors have observed the complementary nature of SCM and ERP and are engaged in consolidation of their product suites.

mrp forecasting techniques  employ some flavor of MRP (Material Requirements Planning) or MRP-II (Manufacturing Resources Planning) for internal supply chain planning. The problem with these traditional planning methodologies is their sequential nature, which makes them unable to consider multiple constraints simultaneously. For example, a plan that begins with a demand forecast can be used to generate product requirements for the manufacturing facilities, which can then be checked against available material and capacity. However, Read More

Case Study: Peerless Pump


Peerless Pump has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing pumps for more than 80 years. The company was basing component stock levels on historical data, as it did not have the ability to accurately forecast customer demand. But with forecasting and demand planning software that increased forecast accuracy, the company has nearly doubled its sales over the past four years, while keeping inventory levels constant.

MRP II and the U.S. Manufacturing Renaissance


The United States manufacturing industry is more productive than that in many countries, and jobs are growing. But for these trends to continue, U.S. manufacturers will have to keep their edge by investing in technologies that allow them to do what they do better, faster, and more efficiently. One of the key components of enterprise resource planning (ERP) packages is called manufacturing resource planning (MRP-II) or, as it is also known today, sales and operations planning (SOP). Download this paper to find out how MRP-II can help you manage change.
