SCA supporting Ardagh with S&OP

by | Nov 27, 2017

The Supply Chain Academy recently held a successful bespoke ‘Sales & Operational Planning’ course in Norwich for manufacturing giant, Ardagh Group.

The Group manufactures packaging and operates globally through two business  divisions, Glass and Metal, with a combined turnover of €7.7 billion

Ashley Macleod, Supply Chain Manager at Ardagh Group –Norwich said:

“This was a great opportunity for the team to come together, learn best practice in an interactive way and share their experiences. It has helped us to think about how we currently operate and how we can apply the learning to become more efficient. The Supply Chain Academy certainly are ‘business led’ and we look forward to a long-term relationship as we grow our business further’.

Ashley was keen to work in partnership with the SCA to take advantage of the SCA’s  focus on the practical application of knowledge to meet his team’s needs.

 

The interactive programme was delivered on a Saturday to avoid work challenges and provided the team with knowledge in:

  • S&OP processes and their purpose
  • the determination of SOP outputs and performance indicators
  • the role of S&OP and decision making
  • the stages of the S&OP process and their implementation; planning values and measures
  • the integration of S&OP into a business

Alex Mortimer, Director of The Supply Chain Academy said:

“In today’s volatile markets, Innovative companies are putting operations and supply chain efficiency at the forefront of their agenda to reduce cost and improve customer service. It was a pleasure to work with Ashley to understand the business and architect the S&OP course, supporting the team in becoming more effective for their market.”
