PLM & S&OP Executive Sessions Irvine


The event in Irvine, CA on August 17, 2017, provided 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, aimed to impart comprehensive insights into key areas critical for effective business operations.

The schedule comprised two main sessions:

1. Session 1: Agile PLM (8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. PT):
This session likely centered around Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), a system that assists in managing the entire lifecycle of a product, from concept to design, manufacturing, and retirement. Attendees would have received insights into how Agile PLM facilitates collaboration, accelerates time-to-market, and ensures product data accuracy.

2. Session 2: Sales & Operations Planning (1 – 4:30 p.m. PT):
The second session would have revolved around Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP), a strategic process that aligns sales and operations to achieve business goals. Attendees might have gained an understanding of demand forecasting, inventory management, production planning, and how effective S&OP practices drive business success.

These executive education sessions, led by experts in the field, likely provided attendees with practical knowledge, real-world examples, and strategies to enhance PLM practices and optimize S&OP processes within their organizations. The sessions were tailored to cater to professionals seeking to deepen their understanding and refine their skills in these critical business domains.

The event aimed to empower attendees with the tools and insights necessary to navigate the complexities of product lifecycle management and sales & operations planning effectively.
