S&OP Application Flow at a Glance

A whole S&OP process includes four phases: Forecast, Demand, Analytics, and Executive.

As might be expected, phases must be executed in sequence on any given dataset. However, you can be in different phases on different datasets.

Users in the S&OP Process Control group will have the option to load datasets and begin the cycle. To avoid confusion when more than one cycle is in progress, it’s a good idea to establish a convention in your team for labeling your datasets according to the period they relate to.
