Consumer, industrial, and high-tech manufacturing companies have significant requirements for robust S&OP processes due to demand and portfolio variability. Industries requiring strong S&OP capabilities often will have difficulty integrating them with financial planning processes due to inherent differences in level of detail, timing, and key stakeholder goals and incentives. These differences complicate comparison of S&OP and financial planning results and hinder a company's ability to understand the financial implication of S&OP outputs.
