UPS and ND results; 10PL concept uncovered; S&OP webinar recording available
UPS and Norbert Dentressangle (ND) have both posted reasonably positive results this week, although UPS did note that the holiday season was a little below par for them. The ND results are especially good given the well documented malaise in the European economy; I don’t know whether this is a wider positive indicator for the European economy or just the results of a well-run organization (or both?) – what are your thoughts?
Our job here at eft, is not just to inform you, but also to make you smile, and with that in mind I would encourage you to watch this very short video about the interesting 10PL concept.
Lastly, I would like to draw your attention to the recording of recent webinar we undertook “A Step-By-Step Guide to S&OP for the Hi-Tech & Electronics Industry” featuring industry experts from Electrolux and NXP Semiconductors – it is only about 40 minutes long and well worth finding the time for a listen.
