Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP)

Sales and Operations Planning is a tactical communications and planning process to evaluate demand and ensure sufficient manufacturing and logistics resources are in place to deliver your product over a rolling 12 to 18 month planning horizon.

The S&OP Consultants work with our clients to fully implement S&OP and to help their business deliver improved customer service and cost & capital efficiency. We deploy simple, no nonsense methods that make sales and operations planning applicable and affordable for all manufacturing companies, whatever the size of your business.

We apply our proven 4 step method to get your S&OP process designed and embedded within all departments, in the shortest possible lead time. The 4 step method ensures your sales and operations planning process is robust, easily understood and entirely geared towards your specific activities.

Our unique Sales and Operations Planning Approach

In conjunction with the 4 step method, our unique sales and operations planning approach will enable you to make considered long term contingency plans for production and logistics resources, whilst optimising your cost base and sustainably improving your service:

  • Work in consensus with your team to develop a process that all functions can truly own
  • Keep it simple and logical – ensuring the process is understood by all stakeholders
  • Provide you with robust proven excel based models – no need for expensive software
  • Work with the your people at a detailed level to deliver a comprehensive process
  • Train and develop your teams as part of the design process

“The process maps that the consulting team produced were exactly what we were looking for – simple, clear and comprehensive, and the gap analysis provided us with an excellent road map of how those processes should be developed. We are now continuing to work with Gideon Hillman Consulting to devise the best course of action to implement those initiatives, and start realising the full benefits."
Supply Chain Director, the Eveden Group
