How Boehringer Ingelheim Biopharma redefined their supply chain operating model as a solid foundation for IBP process design and global implementation
In the context of rapid business development and a growing supply network, Boehringer Ingelheim Biopharma acknowledged that they needed a more integrated planning approach to increase decision-making speed and planning responsiveness, and enable integral comparison of different planning trade-offs.
Target supply chain operating model
In order to design a fit for purpose integrated planning process, they took the important step to first define what their future mode of planning operations should look like. Following EyeOn’s standard approach for a target supply chain operating model definition, this entailed:
- Translation of strategic objectives and priorities to tactical planning principles
- Mapping of the value chain and key planning constraints
- Assessment of the planning processes and key decisions at different levels and horizons (strategic – tactical – operational)
- A review of the planning control model and required capabilities
Based on the target operating model design, a gap fit assessment was performed to determine the improvement priorities and define a supply chain transformation roadmap.
IBP process design and global implementation
To execute the transformation roadmap, EyeOn has been supporting Boehringer Ingelheim Biopharma with the design, implementation, and roll-out of an integrated planning process. Starting with local level S&OP, stepping up towards a global level executive S&OP, and maturing the process towards IBP with further financial integration and cross-functional collaboration.
From reactive to proactive planning
By growing their planning maturity Boehringer Ingelheim Biopharma has made big advancements to move from a reactive to a proactive planning process. In addition, their planning transformation has helped them realize the following planning benefits that enable better decision making and improvement of bottom-line business performance:
- Integration of processes
- Clear planning objectives
- Proactive planning
- Financial reconciliation
- One set of numbers
