Royal Greenland: Master planning
At the beginning of 2013, Royal Greenland initiated the project “Breaking the curve” to conduct a pre-study of how the inventory level could be lowered in the North Atlantic flow. The outcome of the project was a number of initiatives to be implemented. Royal Greenland decided to prioritise two of these. One was to improve the sales and operations planning process, and the other was to improve the detailed production planning in the Greenlandic factories and trawlers.
Royal Greenland optimises its supply chain
“Breaking the curve” is a list of initiatives for reducing inventories in Royal Greenland’s supply chain around the world. For the last couple of years, two large initiatives have been running, namely the implementation of sales and operations planning (S&OP) and the implementation of master/tactical planning.

Focus on operational improvements and increase the value of the company
Most production and logistics managers are familiar with the constant pressure of minimising costs, reducing stocks and bringing down outstandings. Furthermore, most of them are able to deliver results within these areas year after year.
According to sales and operations planning expert, Tom Wallace, S&OP is 80% people, 15% process and 5% tools. In most organisations, however, tools and processes take precedent over people. We can help you change that.
With differentiated planning, your reordering is determined by the characteristics of the items you already have in stock. This approach makes your planning easier and ultimately more cost-effective.
