9 Three Examples of Best Practices
Three (of 13) Companies Studied: High Seasonality High Cyclicality Highly Complex New Product Launch

10 Executive S&OP in Make-to-Stock w/ High Seasonality: The Scotts Co.
Important Questions: When start Pre-Build? At what rates? Which SKUs? When ramp up & how much? When ramp down? S&OP helps to answer these & other questions Pre-Build Pre-Build

11 The Scotts Company “During the last four years, almost half of the company’s increase in earnings has come from Supply Chain savings: inventory down, manufacturing efficiency up, purchase and transportation costs down. All of these are due to improved planning.” Ken Reiff Vice President, Product Planning

12 S&OP in Make-to-Order w/ Extreme Cyclicality: Cast-Fab
Cast-Fab Technologies – Year-to-Year Sales Change %Chg 15 38 6 12 14 25 1 32 18 Acquired from Cin’ti Milacron up down 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 Implemented S&OP Some competitors go out of business 46!!! 12

13 Cast-Fab Technologies
“During 2004, we posted sales increases of over 40%, which meant employee call-backs, retraining, new hires, initial training, getting up the learning curve and so forth. “During the same year, we had productivity gains of up to 3%! We never would have believed this was possible if we hadn’t done it. “S&OP played a key role in this; it gave us the forward visibility to make the right decisions on a timely basis.” Ross Bushman President and COO

14 . . . in the Pharmaceutical Industry
New Product Launch . . . . . . in the Pharmaceutical Industry Multiple stages of testing Multiple approvals by FDA Multiple years Multiple 100s of millions of dollars

15 Eli Lilly and Company New Product Launch Performance: Industry
Average Lilly Years Required (avg per product) >14 9 <11

16 Eli Lilly & Company “In the past three years we have launched 9 new products and met all demand despite 2 products that sold significantly above the high-side forecast. “Without Global Sales & Operations Planning, we would have been driven to reaction mode, which could have resulted in an increase in investment in new assets, a slow down in our launch plans, and/or missed demand opportunities.” Ron Bohl Supply Chain Coordinator

17 These 3 Examples: A Common Thread
Executive S&OP is being used extensively in areas of the business that are: Mission Critical Very Difficult to Manage

18 Hard Benefits Customer Service UP Inventory DOWN Obsolescence DOWN
Freight Costs DOWN Order Lead Times DOWN Supplier Lead Times DOWN Time to Launch New Products DOWN Plant Productivity UP CSL was 50-75%
