Topic: Integrated Planning and Optimized Execution
Gary Bradt will speaking along side Paul McDonald, Director of Business Development for Menlo Worldwide Logistics, on the topic Integrated Planning and Optimized Execution
ERP, MRP, S&OP, IBP and DRP…may we remind you that the “Ps” in those acronyms stand for “planning”. Sure, planning is important, but what about execution? Your plan is only as good as your ability to execute it. What good is the ability to see across your network in real time without the ability to rapidly react to events? Being able to plan and execute in the same system or the Marriage of Planning and Execution.
Paul and Gary will share several client testimonials where this marriage of planning and execution has:
- Dramatically minimized stock-‐outs
- Significantly minimized inventories
- Enabling trading partners to concurrently optimize service levels and logistics together – collaboratively
- Ultimately reduced working capital and accelerating free cash flow
