Sales and Operations Planning/Integrated Business Planning (S&OP / IBP)
The Oliver Wight Companies are the recognized leaders when it comes to Sales and Operations Planning/Integrated Business Planning (S&OP/IBP). While Oliver Wight originated the Sales and Operations Planning process and pioneered its early development, Oliver Wight Americas' business improvement specialists carry on this tradition by continuously innovating and improving the S&OP process and its technology to meet the increasingly rigid demands placed on today's manufacturing industries. The ultimate goal is to foster the evolution of S&OP into Integrated Business Planning.
A properly-implemented Integrated Business Planning process realigns company plans in response to change, including the integration of financial plans. It drives gap-closing actions to address competitive priorities, upper-quartile performance, and to deliver management commitments. It deploys the business strategy. Integrated Business Planning consists of a proper structure, integration of business reviews and reconciliation, strategy alignment and deployment, risk and contingency planning, financial integration, performance measurement, and behaviors.
To compress time to benefit, Oliver Wight has developed strategies and tools:

It is a highly-focused, short-term program that enables companies to integrate demand and supply planning, inventory planning, new product development, financial planning, and strategic initiatives to achieve improved business results.

Another is the Enterprise Sales & Operations Planning Tool, which enables an effective S&OP/IBP process and provides a critical link between the traditional ERP system and the senior-level planning process.
