Rising pressures to manage costs, broaden product portfolios and enter new markets are driving the need to better understand the financial implications of supply chain decision-making. A critical component of change strategies for improved profits and margins is tight control of costs. By integrating cost analysis tools independently or part of your Integrated Business Planning process, you can analyze the impact to the profit and margins of your product line for such cost variations, inventory valuations, etc. Traditional sales and operations planning (S&OP) comparing against top down financial targets is insufficient at providing business leaders with real insight to make the operational and financial trade-offs of critical supply, demand, labor, product costing decisions. Top-performing companies are moving beyond traditional S&OP to more integrated business planning (IBP) in order to confront this challenge, using ERP and EPM Cloud, Cost Management Cloud and together with planning applications to achieve the ultimate insight into the enterprise.
