  • “We have limited visibility to NPI, Marketing, & Price Changes – Extremely manual processes.”
  • “We have limited CRM Opportunity pipeline visibility – Not systematized.”
  • “Many people are second guessing forecasts - Limited visibility and collaboration around assumptions.”
  • “Our business is capital intensive we must run our plants at full capacity.”
  • “We are subject to extensive regulations and laws governing the handling, storage, disposal, and remediation of hazardous substances.”
  • “We have constraints not adequately modeled in the planning system – execution deviates from plan.”
  • “Improving supply chain operations, finding less-costly materials, re-engineering processes, and cutting costs are ongoing.”
  • “Our batch planning systems are not providing real-time answers to demand and supply change what-ifs.”
  • “Our raw material prices & market demand are volatile. We are exposed to rapid changes in raw material values and demand shifts.”
  • “Our AOP /finance process is disconnected from the rolling forecasts of our S&OP process.”
