S&OP Solutions

Performance Operations can address S&OP needs with individual components up to comprehensive, integrated solutions.  In most cases these solutions can be implemented in phases so as to achieve measurable results in short order.

Functional Areas

We commonly address all S&OP functional areas.

  • Forecasting
  • Demand Planning
  • Supply Planning
  • Scheduling
  • Delivery


Most businesses respond very quickly to attention in Sales and Operations Planning areas, often with very quick wins without massive consulting initiatives and comprehensive technology solutions.

  • Breaking down and gaining an understanding of existing operations
  • Identifying areas for quick wins instead of spending weeks on large gap analyses relative to best practices
  • Determining when to push through standardized solutions vs. making a series of small adjustments to existing components
  • Getting existing systems working together in a more coordinated fashion
  • Coming back in a second pass to optimize and consider broader solutions

Our company had a vision of utilizing data collection technology to improve the accuracy and efficiency of managing product activity within our supply chain. We selected Gene Kaplan of Performance Operations due to his overall systems integration knowledge and his ability to interpret technology down to the basic components. By doing this, we were able to get participation of key individuals within our company who embraced the utilization of these systems. We recognized significant improvements in the participating operations. Gene's ability to communicate with executives, RDC management, and those capturing data was instrumental in the system's success. I highly recommend Gene and his team.
