A short Friday post to let you know that Kinaxis will be attending the Sales & Operations Planning Innovation Summit on January 26 & 27, 2012 at the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas. Aamer Rehman, vice president, manufacturing solutions here at Kinaxis, serves as the conference chairperson for Day 1 of the event, on January 26. As the chairperson, he will introduce each speaker, lead the Q&A after each session, and share his personal experiences and key highlights of the topics discussed. Aamer will also present the session “Continuous Sales & Operations Planning for the Manufacturing Sector” on Friday, January 27, at 11:30 am. Here is the session abstract: Planning has long been segmented into different isolated activities that reflect organizational structures and functional goals, leading to long, ineffective, and inefficient planning cycles. For maximized value, sales and operations planning (S&OP) must be a truly cross-functional activity that can directly and simultaneously address both individual departmental goals and joint corporate objectives. In this session, you will learn about the specific technology and process requirements to achieve a continuous and collaborative S&OP capability as it applies to the manufacturing industry in particular. A recording of this session and slide deck will be made available shortly after the event. Stay tuned! If you're at the show, stop by booth #7 and say hi to the Kinaxis team!
