Forecasting the Unforecastable – How S&OP was critical to successfully navigate through the Corona Crisis


• During the corona crisis Austria achieved by far the best planning KPIs within the Beiersdorf world resulting in excellent customer service while keeping stocks on low levels
• Key success factor navigating through the crisis turned out to be a well-established but agile S&OP process in combination with quick creation, alignment, implementation and evaluation of data-based assumptions
• Within this case study presentation, Konstantin Heppner will present…
  - how the corona crisis unfolded and the impact on the organization
  - how the S&OP process was implemented and structured before the crisis and how it was adapted to the “new reality”
  - how to identify the correct data that is needed to create quality assumptions and how this was integrated into the S&OP process
  - how these assumptions were aligned, transferred into the operation and finally evaluated
  - what limitations exist even within best process management and data analytics

Finding the optimum between the hectic daily routine in production and the more strategic customers on the other side is managed by a dedicated workforce and engaged partners in the field of logistics and supply chain. The experience which makes it possible to accelerate in this field comes from 8 years’ experience in several supply chain management positions like at the energy efficiency industry at Danish company Danfoss where Bart managed a department for forecasting, production planning and stock control.
