An Interview with TBM Consulting: Supply Chain Risk Management, Getting Analytics Right, and Making Your S&OP Process More Effective

TBM Supply Chain practice leader, Brian Cromer, sat down with Generis Group, an organizer of high-level, industry-specific business events for senior executives, to discuss supply chain challenges for manufacturers, how analytics can help find solutions to these challenges, and how to develop a more effective S&OP process.

The global economy is increasingly dynamic and volatile which means manufacturers must be agile and responsive. From demand pressures to global trade policies, we discussed how manufacturers can flex their supply chain to respond to or adjust to short-term and long-term changes. With the help of analytics tools leaders can model the potential impact of decisions and what-if scenarios to address these challenges on financial performance. Finally, talked about how to improve the S&OP process to better connect demand planning to supply planning.
