More than Eighty Percent Have a Formal S&OP Process in Place; Yet Seventy-Three Percent Cannot Execute their Vision.

 Logility Inc., a leading supplier of collaborative solutions to optimize the supply chain, recently collaborated with industry publication Consumer Goods Technology to determine the state of Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) in the consumer goods industry. The report discusses the findings from research conducted in August 2013 and compares these results with the same survey conducted in August 2011.

“This year we were able to compare our results with the same survey from 2011 and we found S&OP adoption is on the rise for companies of all sizes citing a better return on net assets and managing growing complexity as the two key drivers.”

The research shows 80 percent of the companies surveyed have a formal S&OP process in place. To support this more than 50 percent revealed they rely on spreadsheets while another 26% stated they either utilize a homegrown solution or their ERP system. Logility believes these approaches could be leading causes why more than 70 percent said they are unable to execute on their S&OP vision.

“S&OP improvement initiatives are clearly a priority for consumer goods companies and often the first step of major supply chain transformation initiatives,” said Kara Romanow, executive editor, Consumer Goods Technology. “This year we were able to compare our results with the same survey from 2011 and we found S&OP adoption is on the rise for companies of all sizes citing a better return on net assets and managing growing complexity as the two key drivers.”..Read more on eon.businesswire.
