Sales, Inventory & Operations Planning

Definity's SIOP Sync webinar is designed to clear up the many misconceptions around the topic, offer best practices, demonstrate new industry trends, and provide a place for you to ask questions about your own organization's challenges.

 

 

What effects do inconsistent buying patterns and an unsynchronized supply chain have on your business?

It's incredibly challenging to match the needs between the Demand (Sales/Forecasting) and Supply (Operations/Purchasing/Inventory) teams within an organization. These challenges have led to an entire field of study dedicated to finding the equations and ratios that help us properly manage things like inventory. Still, these systems or measures often offer a skewed picture of your organization.

Definity's SIOP Sync webinar is designed to clear up the many misconceptions around the topic, offer best practices, demonstrate new industry trends, and provide a place for you to ask questions about your own organization's challenges.

This webinar is instructed by Rich Cary, a Definity RIG Master who champions education internally and helps prepare our own Project Managers for work with clients. It overviews Definity's SIOP-Sync approach, an adaptable and robust framework for the Demand teams and Supply teams to interface in a consistent and effective manner.
