RM Society Meeting Part II

'Bring your CFO (or any C'X'O) to work' could be a description of the theme of the RM Society meeting in London in June. The idea was to encourage the mutual understanding between RM and other parts of the business, and in particular to create a greater appreciation of the richness of information that resides in the RM system and department, such as demand forecasts, product profitability and especially the secondary outputs from the RM network optimisation, which indicate how the various constraints have hindered the achievement of maximum profits.

This meeting was only open to RM Society members; Pieter chaired a workshop on a similar theme at the Hanson Wade conference in London. The accompanying presentation can be downloaded elsewhere on this website.
