Crown Imports Gains Long-Range Supply Chain Planning Visibility with Plan4Demand
Leading beer company revamps Sales & Operations Planning process to forecast more accurately and identify and react to gaps in plans
Pittsburgh, PA Plan4Demand, a leading supply chain management consulting firm, announced it has worked with Crown Imports to revamp the Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) process to gain visibility into long term financial and operational plans. The new S&OP process enables Crown to review the supply chain plan through a financial lens to identify gaps or blind spots in plans when issues are still actionable.
The third-largest beer provider in the US by volume, Crown worked with Plan4Demand to recreate the S&OP process. Crown was planning 90 days out, and if there were issues or shortfalls, they were often masked in the future. Now Crown works 24-months out with in-depth data shared across business units providing early visibility into emerging risks and opportunities.
We were working with multiple forecasts and focusing on the short term horizon which lead to reactive solutions. Crown now has forecast alignment 24-months out to enable the team to proactively pursue strategic solutions to run the business, said Jessie Luchsinger, Demand Planning and S&OP Lead.
