Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP)

Adexa S&OP solution offers a comprehensive environment for end to end visibility, predictability and responsiveness while lowering the cost of operations. It enables you to predict and optimize inventory buffers across the multiple levels of your supply chain, resulting in reduced delivery lead times, increased order fill rates, and avoiding capacity and materials shortages.

The system automatically sets inventory levels based on your service-level commitments by customer (family), SKU or product groups. Furthermore, the solution identifies and predicts imbalance and capacity bottlenecks using time-varying business rules such as sourcing across multiple plants and multiple suppliers with qualifications and postponement strategies.

Multiple scenarios can be compared and financial consequences of each strategy can be seen. This process allows you to have the right product mix, right level of inventory from raw materials to finished goods and in between, as well as ensuring the desired service level at lowest cost of operation.What makes Adexa’s Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) solution exceptional and unique is due to the use of intelligent algorithms produce plans that are so accurate that they can be executed without having to be revised and manipulated by the planners.
