When Red Wing Shoe Company leadership decided it was time to improve sales and operations planning (S&OP), they knew they had to make adjustments to people, processes, and technology. The speakers will share a case study on how Red Wing was able to cut inventory, increase fill rates, gain better visibility, and heighten supplier collaboration. They will explain how this footwear and apparel maker moved from disconnected and somewhat manual supply chain processes to an accelerated S&OP effort that today drives forecasting and aligns inventory investments for superior customer service.
