  • “Our batch planning systems are not providing real-time answers to demand and supply change what-ifs”
  • Lack of visibility to anticipate and simulate scenarios and react fast to change
  • “We cannot answer management what-if questions in real time”
  • “Our AOP /finance process is disconnected from the rolling forecasts of our S&OP process”
