In the S&OP process it is crucial to have a full transparency from the supply to the end-customer. To ensures that the plants have enough components to produce the required materials it is important to pre-order the components from the suppliers in the right amount and right time. To obtain a resilient and robust supply chain planning this pre-ordering should also consider possible disruptions.
Goals of the Project
Increase the (data) transparency of the supplier to the plants. Identify possible disruptions in the supply. Develop a decision support model to allow what-if scenarios for the cost optimal sourcing of components of suppliers such that the demand is met. The model shall be linked to the HILTI S&OP framework.
- Ensure visibility of the supply of the suppliers
- Establish a transparent supply network from the suppliers to the plants
- Identify disruptions
- Based on data, derive a decision support model to source the right amount at the right time from the suppliers to ensure that the demanded material is available in selected plants
