Scope and Challenges

With its focus on a consistent customer experience, Lenzing chose JDA® Sales & Operations Planning, part of JDA® Manufacturing Planning to help it realize revenue margin and operating performance gains through improved decision support and cross-functional alignment. This led to improved sales forecast accuracy, transparency and business alignment, as well as improved decision-making and accountability.

Lenzing deployed JDA Sales & Operations Planning earlier this year to achieve:

  • Forecasting accuracy given its prior manual spreadsheet-based process
  • Regional planner competency for improved demand and budget planning
  • The first S&OP planning process as the key input for global 2018 budget planning
  • Regional consensus to allocation, inventory policy and key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Ability to model its complex supply chain structure

Outcome and Implications

Lenzing leveraged JDA’s end-to-end services support including JDA Consulting, JDA Strategic Services and JDA Cloud for high-level process design, deployment, and cloud enablement.

Since going live with JDA Sales & Operations Planning, Lenzing is already seeing the following benefits:

  • Reduced planning and decision-making time by 50 percent with what-if tactical planning capabilities
  • Increased planning transparency through eliminating manual spreadsheet process
  • Profit optimization with the ability to better allocate critical resources to the most profitable markets
  • Re-engineered S&OP process with cross-functional teams, closing gaps inter-departmentally


“Given our vision to get to the next level of corporate growth, we needed to overhaul our S&OP processes to completely eliminate manual work while evolving towards a fully integrated business planning process. JDA was the right fit with its end-to-end supply chain planning solution and services to help us unite our supply chain globally. Throughout our deployment journey, the JDA team came at this project with a customer-first attitude and had the depth of understanding of our project goals, setting us up for success.” -said Parsan Chand, Vice President, Global Supply Chain at Lenzing AG.

“Lenzing is a prime best practice example of a company that realizes the importance of taking a cross-functional approach to integrated business planning that unites the supply chain with a shared focus of meeting demand across markets, with an eye on both immediate and long-term strategic goals. An effective S&OP process has already helped Lenzing support processes and associated scenario planning across demand and supply, demand-supply balancing, and financial review, and will continue to roll out its deployment globally to improve overall business performance, driving corporate growth.” -said Johan Reventberg, president, EMEA at JDA.
