Executive

User Accessibility

Executive pages are visible to users logged in as S&OP Process Coordinator or S&OP Leadership.

First you should adjust the numbers on Input Page and update demand on the Update Monthly Volume & Margin page.

Then on the Executive page you can run optimization for all scenarios by clicking Optimize Scenarios.

Because the volume and margin/selling price were adjusted for different scenarios, they will have differences in revenue as well.

Compare user-created scenarios

The first chart Compare Scenarios on the page displays this difference by month. The legend on the left shows the color of each scenario.

Compare a created scenario with reference data scenarios

Within a selected scenario, view comparison to the Budget and Master Plan in the chart labeled Selected Scenario.

This chart displays Budget revenue and Master Plan revenue. The table below ,*Revenue and Revenue Cumulative*, shows the actual numbers displayed in the chart.

Compare volume/revenue of selected products/scenarios/months only

After getting the big picture of revenue variation among scenarios, further down the page there are bar charts comparing monthly volume and revenue for selected months, selected scenarios, and selected products. These charts aim to give more clarity of the financial performance of each product (family) in the selected months.

Production plan of current scenarios

The table Results lists the production plan, including Production Volume, Utilization, Short Demand, Fulfilled Demand, and Inventory Level.

Note

Short demand is the amount of demand rejected.

When you make changes in page Update Monthly Volume & Margin for the created scenarios, it is possible that the updated demand cannot be met. The model may reject demand because of capacity constraints or costs being too high to meet this demand.

Short demand is not allowed in the Analytics phase, but is allowed in the Executive phase.
