Xotigo Scenario Planning

Future-Proof Sales Planning with Real-Time Simulation

In the dynamic world of manufacturing, effective Sales Planning is crucial for all aspects of the business, from revenue and cost planning to resource, capacity, and investment planning. Manufacturers face many challenges due to uncertain market dynamics, an evolving technology landscape and changing cost and price structures, which result in lengthy and repetitive evaluation loops and management alignments. However, a powerful simulation tool that can evaluate “what-if” scenarios in real-time can significantly simplify the process and foster better alignment across the organisation.

The Challenges:

  1. Market Complexity: Manufacturers must navigate ever-changing market dynamics influenced by political, economic, and technological factors making it challenging to anticipate and adapt.
  2. Cost & Price Dynamics: Instability in raw material and overhead costs, and uncertainty in the ability to pass those on in customer pricing results in a continuously fluctuating outlook.
  3. Management Matrix: Aligning various functions, profit-centres, regions and stakeholders behind an aligned Sales Plan remains a significant and time-consuming challenge.
  4. Budget Commitment: Securing agreement on budget targets amidst conflicting priorities can be a lengthy and contentious process.

The Solution: A Powerful Simulation & Alignment Tool

A powerful real-time simulation tool offers a revolutionary solution to these challenges, transforming the sales planning process in the following ways:

  1. Real-time „What-If” Scenarios: A simulation tool enables evaluation of multiple different scenarios, delivering answers in real-time and eliminating repetitive analysis loops.
  2. Informed Decision-Making: With the ability to simulate and visualize the consequences of different choices, manufacturers can make data-driven decisions, reducing the risk of guesswork.
  3. Improved Alignment: Providing a common platform where all stakeholders can come together to evaluate scenarios enables quicker and improved alignment across the organisation.
  4. Speedier Planning: By eliminating repetitive loops and providing instant insights, the sales planning process is significantly streamlined, enabling manufacturers to quickly respond to market changes.
