Story,Supply Chain Management Review. New York: Vol.11. Issues 2, pg 51.;Abstract;In most supply chains, the key constraint lies either on the supply side or the demand side. But for dried-fruit producer Sunsweet Growers, both supply and demand are determined by factors beyond the company's control. To operate more effectively in this doubly constrained environment, Sunsweet updated its old sales and operations planning (S&OP) program with new tools and processes. The new S&OP program helps not only to balance supply and demand but also to sustain that balance.
