SAP IBP for Sales & Operations Planning

Your planning result is only as good as the synchronization between the different planning departments.

In essence, this concerns your demand and supply and financial planning; however, depending on the individual situation, other areas should also be involved (R&D, procurement or external stakeholders). In an integrated Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) process, this coordination takes place within the framework of a constant exchange in the form of weekly or monthly review meetings.

SAP IBP as a tool for your business planning

SAP IBP for S&OP provides the ideal basis for these reconciliations by creating a central data basis for the entire supply chain (single-source-of-truth), offering flexible simulation options and providing good usability with integrated Excel planning views and Fiori dashboards. We support you in designing and implementing an integrated tool-supported S&OP process. We help you to make the most of the IBP for S&OP functions that are relevant to you, such as simple statistical demand planning, infinite supply planning or opportunity & risk planning, and to integrate functions from other IBP modules, such as Demand, Response & Supply, Inventory or the Control Tower, if required.


  • Reconciliation of "Demand" and "Supply
  • Alignment of supply chain planning with financial targets
  • Determination of restrictions and exceptions in the supply chain
  • Consolidated cross-functional master plan
  • Simulation of demand and supply matching to handle bottlenecks with the possibility of management escalation.
  • The IBP S&OP module includes basic elements for demand and supply planning

Our IT, key users from the business unit and CONSILIO's experts quickly formed a well-coordinated project team that carried out the IBP implementation very successfully.

Opportunity & Risk Planning

Driver Based Planning enables you to manage risk in the demand planning process

  • Opportunities and risks are created at a flexible aggregation level by planners and can be individually adjusted
  • Disaggregation is done dynamically. For example, on the basis of forecast disaggregation factors.
  • Data import from external systems is possible. For example, through Ariba, SAC and CRM
  • Relevant opportunities and risks can be taken into account in the SOP meeting when creating consensus requirements
