Dave Magness and the Red Wing Shoe Company team have been a vital component of the company’s ability to manage its global growth in the face of increasing cost pressures and changing consumer preferences in the footwear and apparel industry. The team has transformed its sales and operations planning (S&OP) process to help drive a “one number” plan and ensure all stakeholders are working toward a common goal. The global S&OP process has helped increase fill rates, reduced safety stock and inventory, and improved service levels.
Parker Hannifin offers more than 850,000 products across its global operations creating a highly complex supply chain network that has seen rapid growth through organic initiatives and acquisitions. Robert McAdoo and the supply chain team at Parker Hannifin have been charged with rolling out a global S&OP process across the company’s more than 140 divisions. The journey encompasses a methodical process of implementing the S&OP process one division at a time, incorporating best practices from each division along the way. Currently more than half way through the process, Parker Hannifin is well on its way to a standard global S&OP process.
