ONE’s demand-driven S&OP links S&OP plans to your multi-year strategic initiatives to account for the attainment of desired goals.

Based on these orders forecasts, the system calculates distribution, transportation, production, and procurement plans, matches demand and supply, computes and bi-directionally propagates all capacity constraints, and synchronizes the plans for the entire network. ONE’s real-time incremental planning and execution capability seamlessly puts the plans in action generating detailed, actionable short-term plans to the execution systems.
