  5. The adjustment to post-Brexit trading arrangements is taking up a lot of time, energy and expense so we hosted a practitioner-only discussion on Wednesday 17th February to share insights into how best to adapt. At this stage, challenges mostly relate to fully understanding the new requirements and dealing with them as they arise but, as the situation stabilises, it will be necessary to evaluate how systems and processes should change, particularly with regard to automation. Here are the key points from the discussion: TSS / NI trade Shared frustration about TSS’ responsive

    Managing your SC planning digitalisation journey (for current practitioners only) 15th April, 11.00 to 12.30 GMT / 12.00 to 13.30 CET Even if you are very focused on a specific project or focus of supply chain enablement, it's important to see this in the context of a broader digitalisation roadmap. In the interdependent context of supply chain, it's vital to see the dependencies and to understand the target outcomes. In this discussion we explore how to visualise, position, and set a roadmap in place for success, ensuring outcomes meet objectives and avoiding missteps. For this

    Derisking freight cost volatility with e2e, SKU-level visibility (for current practitioners only) 17th March, 11.00 to 12.30 GMT In the past few months, the cost of freight has hit sudden, all-time highs, rendering regular budget planning impossible. How can we get better visibility of costs to pre-empt and avoid additional expense? What drives unexpected costs to your freight spend? Blind spots: what's preventing or limiting visibility and how can these be eliminated? Data sources: which sources are most reliable and practical for better visibility e.g. real-t

Granular Cost to Serve (CTS) analysis Summary of a practitioner only discussion held on 5th February 2021 with members from AB InBev, Bacardi, Ferrero, British Sugar and ex-SCD currently working on a network optimisation project for a major agrichem company: Lessons learned: CTS initiatives have been broadly successful and been worth the investment CTS means different things to different people so important to be clear: it’s more than cost-to-fulfil and should incorporate gross price and margin Complex interdependencies means that brand-level analysis is too coar

    Next-gen omnichannel retailing - e2e visibility & demand shaping (for current practitioners only)* The pandemic has prompted a shift to non-store channels, including delivery and click & collect, accelerating a trend that was already well established. For many, the response has been tactical with a 'whatever it takes' approach to serving customers however they wish. In tandem with the drive to reduce waste, there are important questions about whether the status quo is sustainable or whether a fundamental re-think and re-design of supply chain operations, enabled by digital te

Dedicated focus on reinforcing S&OE, often by centralising and formalising roles and escalation / de-escalation processes and triggers; Demand managers aggregate the demand but product managers (with P&L) responsibility decide which segments, customers and products to prioritise; S&OP meetings sometimes had longer horizons up to ten y

    Concurrent planning in practice - selection, implementation & RoI (for current practitioners only)* 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. How has a concurrent (as opposed to linear or sequential) planning approach helped and what was th
