2008 New England Supply Chain Conference and Exhibit - John Bermudez Presentation

Using Planning Tools to Manage Business Cycle Downturns
John Bermudez, Sr. Director, SCM Product Strategy, ORACLE

The ever-changing global economy continues to offer opportunities in the supply chain space. Recent market volatility has heightened the need for accurate and actionable information, to assure both short-and long-term success. It is a continual challenge to pinpoint those key metrics that provide a realistic picture of how current market conditions will impact business. For many executives, this challenge is particularly critical in balancing supply versus market demand.

This presentation will identify specific steps you can take to manage your business in a struggling economy, by using advanced planning systems. You will learn to better understand the critical supply chain levers that impact organizations and identify opportunities to reduce costs, optimize inventory and maximum revenue. Best practices for Advanced Supply Chain Planning, Sales and Operations Planning, Demand Management, Inventory Optimization and Strategic Network Optimization will be presented.
