Senior Supply Planning Coordinator

Location SG-Singapore


The purpose of the Senior Supply Planning Coordinator role is to reflect the regional 12-18 month operational and business objectives in the form of a demand plan within SAP. The Senior Supply Planning Coordinator should then, on a daily basis, manage the plan and associated material movements required to achieve the plan and to ensure timely fulfilment of orders. At a manufacturing site, the role will be centered on the management of production unit schedules. At a non-manufacturing location, the role is centered on raw material management via co-ordination with business, manufacturing and logistics. In both cases, the proper execution of the role should enable best utilization of production facilities and should enable the right product being available for customers in the right time and in the right location. Specific roles encompass planning for defined business units as required in regional and global markets.
