Concurrent planning

    

Integrated planning

Concurrent planning in the age of volatility & disruption

The Covid experience has underlined the importance of agility and being able to adapt to changing circumstances. In many cases, existing S&OP / IBP processes have struggled with a much higher demand for scenarios, cycles having to begin before the previous cycle is finished and a highly unusual operating context requiring decisions to be escalated or reviewed more frequently. 

Can a concurrent (as opposed to linear or sequential) planning approach help? How?

We aim for 5-8 active discussion participants. Others may also join and we'll invite input from everyone before and during the session. The key questions to address include:

  • What are the people, process and systems barriers to better coping with volatility?
  • What lessons can we learn from the pandemic experience so far and recent implementations?
  • How to demonstrate concurrent planning RoI in six weeks

Moderated by Intent, this is an interactive discussion shaped by participants' input with opportunities to continue conversations with individual participants afterwards.

The discussion leaders will be:

      Perfect delivery – order orchestration, adaptive logistics and trade compliance
      (for current practitioners only)
      The global pandemic has expedited the evolution of business models especially direct to consumer and highlighted the impact of interruptions on service and critical supply levels, in addition to impacts from climate change, social unrest, cyber and physical attacks on assets. Whatever the final outcome, Brexit will add to the volatility. To manage these risks and retain customers' trust, supply chain practitioners need greater visibility and traceability to profitably and promptly satisfy demand irrespective of channel and proactively manage incidents. This discussion will explore:
      How can a perfect delivery digitalisation roadmap address: strategic drivers? (cost, customer experience, compliance, carbon footprint and human capital) tactical drivers (business model evolution, Brexit, pandemic-driven volatility)  What should digitalised perfect delivery look like? Orchestration - Simplify ordering across channels, ensure rapid delivery and excellent customer service to compete effectively Logistics - Plan and adapt to disruptions and execute to exceed expectations. Retaining customers' trust with proactive advice on changes to ETAs (Estimated Time of Arrival) leveraging AI and incorporating external data e.g. incidents such as port closures etc. IoT for fleet monitoring, quality assurance and near real-time response Transport Orchestration to deliver on your responsibility for the shipments irrespective of the extent of outsourcing to 3PLs Trade compliance - minimised delays, costs and trade risk through rigorous trade compliance How & where to start? Identifying best value initiatives SaaS / cloud as the foundation Frameworks for evaluating potential RoI Who needs to be on board? Hosted by Intent
      Expert guest: Vikram Singla, Strategy Director, Oracle

      Dynamic network design - agility & resilience for 'new normal'
      Recent news about Covid-19 vaccines is nothing but positive but we are still likely to encounter more volatility of supply conditions in future. Therefore, the idea that your network is something you review every two or three years won't work in this scenario and, instead, a more frequent and dynamic network design planning process will be required.
      Up-stream sourcing strategy: China + 1? How to diversify? How to adapt network design processes? Data lakes, dashboards & scenario analyses 'Supply sensing'?: tools & techniques for early warning of supply shocks Moderated by Intent, this is an interactive discussion for practitioners to share experience and ideas.
