From low accuracy of demand forecasting, demand-supply gaps and lack of planning views in demand management to inventory build-up, lost sales and non-optimal production capacity in supply management – these recurrent challenges faced by consumer goods companies necessitates taking a fresh look at Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP).
