Deloitte’s approach to tackle shelf life planning on SAP IBP

Shelf life planning solution addresses the challenge of considering expiring batch stock in demand shaping, supply and financial planning.

Demand Manager

  • What is the challenge?
    Lack of out of shelf life batch inventory visibility for sales & demand managers.
  • What is the value?
    Identify when and which batches will expire to help to shape demand, to avoid write offs and ensure sales.

Supply Planner

  • What is the challenge?
    Missing information on product batch shelf life, resulting in a low anticipation and suboptimal resource allocation and unnecessary write offs.
  • What is the value?
    Identify and include planned out of shelf life batches in supply and replenishment planning cross the global network.

Finance Manager

  • What is the challenge?
    Lack of vision on impact of shelf life related write offs, causing misalignment between S&OP and financial plan.
  • What is the value?
    Anticipate financial provisions for potential write offs linked to shelf life. Improve integration of financial and volumetric planning.
