Semiconductor Sales Forecast Optimization

Boost the efficiency and effectiveness of your S&OP planning

New levels of demand and supply volatility

Semiconductor companies of any size are operating in a regimen of global demand & supply  – and competition. Hence they manage a global value chain – often referred to as a “design anywhere, manufacture anywhere” strategy. It helps get customer demand closer to production execution and delivery, while meeting cost, quality and time-to-market targets. Coupled with postponement strategies, it also helps diversifying and balancing global demand and supply volatility in order to successfully compete and increase business.

Unprecedented complexities and dynamics to manage

Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) is a key process associated with these global strategies. It incorporates Demand Planning to forecast the demand in an unconstrained way. It also connects Supply Planning to align and balance the demand with the actual production, logistics and purchase capacities. Unfortunately, the efficiency and effectiveness of S&OP is often reduced because departments are using separate data sets as well as diverse and manual processes to create an optimized plan for the entire organization.
