(Featuring the case study of TXT's customer Greencore.)
Supply Chain Managers and CFOs are well aware of the instrumental role that Sales & Operations Planning plays in inventory optimisation.
S&OP done properly helps mitigate demand volatility, allocate resources better and ultimately take well-informed inventory decisions that positively affect product availability and the bottom line.
