Abstract:For this research, we developed a framework to assess risk and uncertainty for the tactical planning process for 12 months with NX Filtration. This company produces different types of membrane solutions for filtering, focusing on Direct Nano Filtration Membranes, which is a breakthrough technology. As a result of this technological breakthrough, the company is currently experiencing hypergrowth, expecting at least a doubling in output every year. The company has created a strategic plan to position itself for this hypergrowth. A tactical planning process, to determine the right tactical actions to realise this strategy is lacking at the moment. Our research aims to provide a structure for the company to improve its tactical planning process. This is done by researching three main pillars: A rolling forecast of the cash flows, innovation, and performance measurement. A literature study is performed to design our framework, followed by a thorough analysis of relevant company processes. Based on literature and findings, we propose a structure to manage the S&OP cycle. Involving all relevant inputs to create the right tactical planning within the strategic direction of the company, creating a comprehensive approach with hypergrowth.
