TXT S&OP Delivers:

Pre-S&OP Financial: S&OP is fast evolving beyond the operational realm to become a truly strategic process that generates real value for the organization and the CFO. With TXT S&OP, Sales Budgets and Financial Planning are translated into demand and supply views ensuring complete alignment with the business objectives. Financial what-if and profit & loss calculations help assess the real trade-offs of each decision.

Pre-S&OP Demand - Collaborative Demand Planning: From pre generated statistical estimates, to the Marketing brand profitability view and Sales account perspectives, different forecasts are reconciled; users can work by exception and agree on one number.

Pre-S&OP Supply: Demand is translated into supply, distribution and inventory plans: Through advanced scenarios, users identify constraints and capacity opportunities and best alternatives for matching demand based on business drivers.

Executive S&OP: at this stage all the pre-S&OP meeting work comes together. All functions review alternative scenarios and converge toward a consensus plan. From an Executive perspective, value is key; and the business impact of every decision can be reviewed and approved. The integrated KPI framework enables the plan to be continuously updated and refined, with a non-stop focus on profitability and margins.

To meet the challenges of complex manufacturing processes with many steps, many players and high product complexity, TXT S&OP capabilities extend to supply chain collaboration, as well as to manufacturing planning, scheduling and plant execution control.
