Dairy products, like cheese, butter, and milk powder, create increased complexity as they flow through the commodity supply chain: each production decision creates multiple additional decisions and trade-offs.
Further complexity is added by Mother Nature, with raw milk supply influenced by weather and seasonal variation, leading to increased uncertainty in your production planning cycle.
What if you could have predicted the rise in cheese demand during global COVID-19 quarantines? What strategic opportunities could you take advantage of with improved demand visibility and the ability act on it quickly and with greater certainty in your decisions.

One national dairy customer based in the US needed to create a robust, multi-team IBP process that powered strategic business decisions for management across all departments. We were able to create end-to-end modeling that better managed their master data, utilized it more comprehensively, aligned all divisions within the company, and helped them avoid missing opportunities previously lost to slow decision-making and obscured information.
We enhanced this process with robust business complexity models that accounted for time varying reverse bills of materials, telescoping time buckets, production and storage constraints, and external impacts on their dairy supply chain. Being able to have their decision making process supported a full 3 years out offers fantastic long-term opportunity in the face of dairy industry volatility.
