PLM & S&OP Executive Sessions Boston


The event in Boston, MA presents a unique opportunity for professionals to engage in executive education sessions focusing on Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP). These sessions, conducted by Oracle and supply chain experts, aim to provide comprehensive insights into key areas critical for effective business operations.

The schedule for the event includes two main sessions:

1. Session 1: Agile PLM (8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET):
This session likely centers around Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), a system designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a product. Attendees can anticipate discussions on various aspects such as product design, manufacturing, distribution, and retirement. The focus may involve how Agile PLM facilitates collaboration, accelerates time-to-market, and ensures accurate product data throughout the lifecycle.

2. Session 2: Sales & Operations Planning (1 – 4:30 p.m. ET):
The second session would revolve around Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP), a strategic process aligning sales and operations to achieve business goals. This session may cover topics including demand forecasting, inventory management, production planning, and how effective S&OP practices drive business success.

Both sessions, led by industry experts, aim to equip attendees with practical knowledge, real-world examples, and strategies to enhance PLM practices and optimize S&OP processes within their organizations. The event caters to professionals seeking to deepen their understanding and refine their skills in these critical business domains.
