Is S&OP as Obsolete a name as MRP II?Book Now
Start Date:13/09/2018 09:00:00
End Date:13/09/2018 12:30:00
Event Code:COR0359
Description:
When: 13 September 2018, 08:30 (for 09:00) - 12:30
Where: Oracle Corporation, 1 South Place, London, EC2M 2RB


S&OP / IBP (Sales and Operations Planning / Integrated Business Planning) has been around for years as an essential enabler for customer centric supply chains and a key tool for strategic execution, although many firms are wary of implementing S&OP fearing long and painful cross functional transformations that will need strong executive sponsorship for success.

Is the supply-and-demand legacy associated with S&OP keeping supply chain practitioners from enlisting executive support to fully realise its benefits? Perhaps we should be talking about executive concerns instead of mid-level manger concerns?

S&OP deliverables play a key role in achieving a better customer experience and hence drive revenue growth. On-Time-In-Full delivery is an important metric influencing the customer experience but an inability to deliver can cause an even greater and negative impact. Having an effective, efficient and low-cost supply chain is the key to great customer experience and therefore to maintain and grow revenue, whether you are delivering A380s or meals in a restaurant.

The pressure to provide product and service availability is increasing and will create further pressures on profitability. Of course, each customer segment will have its own SLA (Service Level Agreements) on availability. Availability of products and services to different customer segments balanced with their priorities is what S&OP really provides. So why is so much effort required to get executive buy in?

- Is it time to change the name and perception of S&OP to “Automated Business Planning’ ABP? This brings a connected and automated business planning ‘core’ process to offer a better customer experience and profitability!
- Companies need to move beyond supply and demand balancing and need to master ABP at the heart of business strategy.
- The CEO needs to champion the use of ABP because it impacts growth and efficiency in tandem. Other executives are possibly more focused on growth or efficiency. For a better customer experience and greater profitability ABP needs to be a core business process.
In our exclusive roundtable event, we will discuss the above topics including the latest technologies that are available to modernise this business process today.
Join us for breakfast to discuss amongst peers. We look forward to seeing you there.

What is your life and career vision for 2035 - less than 2 decades away?  How do you want to live and work?  Will you live in a city, or a rural area?  How will you travel around?  How will you shop, socialise, eat and play? Is logistics shaping up to support the world you would like to see?  Will you be proud to be part of an innovative, forward-thinking, responsible profession that helps people, products and services get to where they are needed on time, safely, efficiently - and without causing pollution, disease, injury, stress and destruction?

The CILT Environment & Sustainability and Young Professionals Forums have joined forces to explore such questions at VISION 2035: a fully interactive conference with the agenda set and the discussion led by delegates to create an environment of innovation and productive debate.  We aim to welcome many of our young professional members as well as professionals, at all levels. There will be four break-out groups which will develop themes throughout the day based on four draft Vision Statements with an overarching shared aspiration that TRANSPORT & LOGISTICS services will create shared value by connecting people, products and services in ways that enhance our lives, our communities and the living systems we all depend on. They will enhance our health and help us stay within Planetary Boundaries The draft Vision Statements are:

PERSONAL MOBILITY 
To provide safe, comfortable, engaging, convenient and enjoyable ways to move people and help them live, work and socialise, in ways which are affordable to all. Shared services are accessible to all, meaning there is no need to own your own motorised transport. They encourage and support healthy lifestyles and provide seamless integration between modes and service providers.

MAIL AND PARCELS
Services are delivered where and when I want them, integrated with other transport in ways that minimise the footprint of the whole system, and provide added-value community services. Traceability and transparency will enable the provenance of products, components, materials and services to be accessible to customers and other stakeholders.

DOMESTIC FREIGHT
Enables effective and efficient circular flows of goods and services, supporting local (distributed) production and retailing. Collaborative, multi-modal approaches and sharing will be the norm for assets, services and information. Traceability and transparency will enable the provenance of products, components, materials and services to be accessible to customers and other stakeholders.

INTERNATIONAL FREIGHT AND SUPPLY CHAINS
Enable effective and efficient circular flows of goods and services, supporting local (distributed) production and retailing. Collaborative, multi-modal approaches and sharing will be the norm for assets, services and information. Traceability and transparency will enable the provenance of products, components, materials and services to be accessible to customers and other stakeholders, and overseas movements meet UK standards.

The main messages will be fed back in an afternoon session to the wider audience. There will be interactive voting at different times of the day to obtain feedback. There will also be a line up of speakers to open the debate from a wider perspective than just transport and then we will examine what that means for each of the above four selected themes. The outputs will build on the ideas proposed in the recently published CILT 2035 document but will not be exclusively linked to this. The format of the conference looks something like this:

 

This is a new and exciting event format with excellent opportunities to reflect on current challenges and to innovate and develop new approaches to make logistics future-fit. We look forward to welcoming people of all ages, backgrounds and interests for an engaging day of exploration and conversation.

We are very grateful to ASTON UNIVERSITY for hosting the conference. Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

For directions click here.

With the average age of our industry's drivers set to continue to rise, coupled with the alarming rate of health related fatal incidents recorded on our roads, many of them avoidable, the robust and empathetic management of our drivers health and well-being has never been so critical. And so, this years' conference will focus on these vitally important issues, specifically focusing on the solutions.

To do this, we have lined up a diverse panel of expert speakers specialising in the field of driver health and well-being who will share their expertise and suggest practical solutions and advice on how best to approach and deal with these difficult issues: what to look out for and how to ask and address those difficult situations which must be tackled head on by the industry. Most importantly, what the key is to engaging empathetically with our drivers to ensure they gain our trust and are fit to drive and stay alive!

Our main aim is to raise awareness and help to educate our sector on addressing the issues by introducing small changes.

This is an unmissable event and a natural follow up to last year's conference aimed at fleet operators, transport managers, operations managers, indeed anyone in the sector, both transport and freight, with driver management responsibilities, health and safety, compliance.  This is what some of our delegates had to say about last year's conference:

  • The event provided general improvement of knowledge in an area of which I have little expertise.
  • The range of topics covered was first class
  • An excellent networking opportunity!
  • All the speakers provided excellent industry knowledge; the exhibitors provided an excellent addition.
  • Excellent array of speakers, very thought provoking.

Please note the delegate list will be vetted to ensure a relevant audience.   Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

A number of exhibitor places are also available.  For further information or to sponsor this event, please contact Senior Regions & Forums Co-ordinator Ana Walker at ana.walker@ciltuk.org.uk.
