S&OP & Demand Planning Part 1

Updated: May 16, 2022

Demand Streams are the right way to model demand flowing into an S&OP family. Importantly, demand planning is a distinct process from S&OP… the two should be coupled, but not too tightly. They’re not the same thing!

This also flows from our core concept: Families should NOT be demand-facing… but based on measurable execution around supply constraints – typically making, buying, or otherwise producing something to supply.


BEZA LIVESTREAM - S&OP Thursday - On the 2nd and 4th Thursdays each month 3pm Eastern/2pm Central we'll discuss how S&OP changes the executive management of a business. Doug Dedman, a thought-leader of 20 years in S&OP, will demonstrate real-world scenarios in the Five Section Sheet (5SS) weekly.
