Advanced materials planning

In S&OP development in a configure-to-order environment, supply and materials planning is a complicated key task. In this PoC, a concept for forecasting based on a functional decomposition, commercial characteristics and technical characteristics was created, along with a demo using real-life data. It was found that maintaining the link between product commercial and technical characteristics is a key enabler of sustained success.
