Event Details

In current economic market conditions, creating a reliable forecast has become even more difficult than before. Just using simple or even more advanced trend models will not help companies in Vietnam to predict future upward or downward trends.

This exclusive forum will help companies to achieve a transition from simple forecast to S&OP by looking closely at blockers of change, incorporation of financial analysis and cross-functional alignment.

We will discuss how to succeed in cross-functional integration, achieve more accurate supply chain forecasting by integrating customers and suppliers into a process as well as to improve the quality of data management in your supply chain.

Speakers and panelists include:

Do Quoc Nhat
S&OP & RPM Planning Specialist
Heineken Vietnam
Steven Phat Nguyen
Assistant Production Planning & Control Manager
Avery Dennison
Manohgaran Rajoo
Owner
R&M Supply Chain Management
Thành Nguyễn Văn
Senior Solution Consultant
iERP.vn
 
 

 

Tran Hai Thang
Supply Chain Planning Manager - Fabric Cleanning

Why Attend this Event?

In current unstable economic environment, the introduction of S&OP is a short-term priority, as it allows modeling and developing a clear action plan long before the onset of critical conditions and minimizing negative impacts. Accurate forecasting and effective planning is only a part of compelling benefits of S&OP application, which ultimately demonstrates its effectiveness in areas of costs reduction, capitalization, transparency, and customer service.

We will be reviewing techniques of improvement of the accuracy of forecasting and planning in the cross industries.
