Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP)

S&OP is an integrated planning process for sales planning that encompasses various areas of the company such as sales, marketing, production, and financial planning. It integrates past, present, and forecast data to create a coordinated production and sales plan.


Demand Planning (DP)

In Demand Planning, future sales volumes are calculated as the basis for inventory, procurement, and production planning. To do this, time series models, regression models, and machine learning are combined to create medium or long-term sales forecasts.
