Patients around the world entrust their health to CT scanners and X-ray machines that use components designed and produced by Varex Imaging, the world’s largest independent supplier of medical X-ray tubes and image processing solutions. Varex relies on its sales and operations planning experts to forecast demand so that proper stock levels and logistics are available when needed – and any delay that could potentially threaten patients’ well-being can be avoided.
Varex worked with Bristlecone to sharpen long-term planning, expanding the planning horizon from 3-6 months to 12 months. Bristlecone deployed SAP Integrated Business Planning (IBP), along with a set of powerful accelerators to help Varex reach its demand sensing goals.
“Varex never accepts good enough. With SAP IBP, we’ve built a platform that helps us master demand planning.” – Gabe Peterson, Senior Director of Enterprise Applications, Varex Imaging
