The I-Plan Solution
Suominen selected I-Plan as an integral part of the solution, to support demand and supply planning, in particular:
- Supporting their forecasting and demand review with customers
- Evaluating strategic market opportunities, modelling their expected profitability and impact elsewhere in the business.
- Providing accurate supply and demand scenario planning and generating their high level supply plan.
- Allocating production across their specialised global manufacturing facilities and generating rough production plans 2 to 18 months ahead.
I-Plan will integrate with the new ERP and fine planning systems to provide a balanced and financially optimal demand and supply plan to drive sales, materials supply and production planning processes.
The I-Plan team will be supporting the programme with specific industry S&OP expertise, to lead the design of Suominen’s new demand and supply planning processes.
