Terra Technology, the leading provider of demand sensing and inventory optimization solutions for consumer products companies, today (9/30) announced that David Mills, associate director of global business planning for Procter & Gamble, and Michael Mastroianni, vice president of supply chain strategy at Terra, will present â€œDemand Sensing-Enabled Supply and S&OP Improvements at P&Gâ€ at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado on Tuesday, October 7, 2008 at 2:30 PM. CSCMP is the preeminent association for individuals involved in supply chain management.
Mills and Mastroianni, the former vice president of North America planning, reliability and operations at the Campbell Soup Company, were invited to address how breakthrough advances in demand sensing technology enabled P&G to achieve design and execution improvements in the supply network and S&OP. P&G has reduced forecast error more than 30 percent by incorporating Terraâ€™s demand sensing capability into P&Gâ€™s industry-leading Consumer Driven Supply Network (CDSN).
Commenting on the upcoming presentation, Mastroianni said, â€œAMR Research named Procter & Gamble the top consumer products supply chain performer in 2008 because P&G leverages its Consumer-Driven Supply Network to outperform competitors in the marketplace. This presentation is designed to provide attendees with a first-hand perspective of how P&G has used demand sensing technology to improve its bottom line with real-world results that could be applied to other companies facing similar supply chain challenges.â€
