Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) models are also available to manufacturing and processing businesses to match product demand with production.  The advantage of these models is that they help businesses to:

  • Save money by only producing the required amount of product thereby reducing the potential for obsolete and slow moving stock taking up storage space.
  • Allow for improved forecast of both sales and production.

For manufacturing or processing industries who want to take their sales and operations planning to the next level, RFSCE have developed a very good S&OP model with solutions available from AUD $100k – $260k, depending on your business’s need.  This means that there are now affordable solutions available for both medium sized businesses and the larger small manufacturing and processing businesses.  For more information on this product please contact Reto Fuhrer
