September PDM – Advancing S&OP Results Before Installing Third-Party Software

No enterprise resource planning system can address all companies’ unique sales and operations planning (S&OP) reporting requirements out of the box. Thus, businesses struggle with how to get these needed figures. Attend this educational session to gain insights on using ad hoc analytical solutions in real-world S&OP rollouts and enhancement projects. You will learn how to progress your organization’s S&OP reporting prior to purchasing third-party software packages and gain access to no-cost sample Excel tools to employ at your workplace. This educational session qualifies for 1 elective hour toward the APICS S&OP Education Certificate.
