Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP)

Combat complexity with a playbook of contingencies ready to execute


The Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) process allows supply chain professionals to balance demand and supply across their extended enterprise. For this process to be effective, organizations require a simple and intuitive way to evaluate various sourcing, manufacturing, and distribution options while having visibility into projected order fill rates, capacity utilization, and internal profit margins.


The LLamasoft Digital Design and Decision Center provides access to powerful scenario planning capabilities providing the opportunity to evaluate and explore multiple options to help you prepare for changing market conditions. Rapidly alter flow paths for high-performing products and respond rapidly if the regulatory approval you’ve been waiting for comes through sooner than anticipated, or deliver in-time responses if critical capacity suddenly goes offline. Quickly and easily prepare multiple scenarios to answer the tough questions that arise as part of S&OP.

  • Adjust policy parameters and other variables to drive scenario planning
  • Spin up parallel scenarios across functional teams to enable massive scale in ‘what-if’ scenarios
  • Side-by-side comparison of key scenario KPIs to drive comparisons

Quickly and easily prepare multiple scenarios to build rapid responses to the interdepencies and variability uncovered as part of Sales and Operations Planning.
