Short-Term vs. Long-Term Planning - Manage Multiple Master Plans

Wednesday, October 16 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

This class will be a fun interactive class exploring best practices in regard to multiple master plans configurations based on short-term vs. long-term planning. We will explore how calculations delays and actions messages greatly influence planning and the S&OP process. The class will be divided into three sections.  First: The instructor will provide different master plan configurations which will provide different planning suggestions.  Second: The instructor will facilitate a discussion on the various configurations’ advantages and disadvantages as well as departmental optimization based on different configurations.  Third: As a group, a consensus statement on the best setting for short- and long-planning will be developed.


  • Identify how calculation delays and action messages are influencing planning and the S&OP processes
  • Walk away with multiple master plan configurations suggestions so that they can select the right one for their business
  • Discover the advantages, disadvantages, and optimizations of various configurations
