digital twin for S&OP 


S&OP optimization 


A sales forecast based on statistics or AI is not always enough to identify future market needs. The sales department might have expansion plans, offer projects or drive actions that are not included in statistical forecasts.

Similarly, manufacturing capacities, financial restrictions or other constraints might not allow to meet the expected market demand. In such cases, complex coordination processes become necessary. The aim of S&OP is to carry these out in an organized and structured manner.

Abels & Kemmner helps leading companies to set up their S&OP processes efficiently and to design them optimally.

 In doing so, we rely on state-of-the-art methods.

Our approach to optimize S&OP

Using the data from your ERP system, we create a powerful digital twin of your value streams and planning processes. This enables us to

  • Compare possible future S&OP processes and together with you optimize the most suitable one to your needs
  • Reduce the required effort for the sales team to the necessary minimum
  • Develop approaches to improve the quality of S&OP forecasts

With the application of constraint analyses, we systematically uncover the root causes of underperforming planning processes, derive suitable improvement measures and help you implement them.

By using supply chain simulation and constraint analysis, we determine in such cases, for example,

  • which forecasting quality can be achieved with the existing statistical or AI-supported methods,
  • whether resource bottlenecks can be eliminated cost-effectively,
  • how the planning effort of the sales department can be kept to a minimum.

We identify the potential for improvement in your existing procedures

and work with you to build an optimized and customized S&OP process.
