Doug joined Supply Chain Enthusiast Apporav Mahajan on his podcast, "Supply Planning and More." The two had a lot to discuss, and recorded two episodes together!
Episode 11: Building Sales and Operations Planning Process Ground Up
In this episode, Doug explains how to get started with implementing an S&OP process, how to truly engage management, and what data is critical to track and report. Doug and Apporav also examine how DBM's system provides these results in a straight-forward approach, that foregoes the complexities of business and delivers simple answers.
Episode 12: S&OP for Different Business Models
Doug covers how S&OP varies between different manufacturing methods, including:
-Make to Stock
-Make to Order
-Assemble to Stock
-Assemble to Order
-Engineer to Order
Doug and Apporav describe how different buffers, such as inventory, lead-time, upside flex, and assembly play an important role in each of these methods. He also shares how the S&OP process works in a constrained capacity environment, and how to determine capability levels to meet demand under these conditions.
