CHICAGO, IL 60601
Analyst, Demand Planning
As we add more airlines and aircraft to our customer base it is important to continue to grow our resources to keep pace. An important part of this growth is the new Demand Planning team in our Supply Chain function. This group will ensure availability for equipment to meet demand and eliminating wasteful spending. As we develop more cutting-edge technologies the choices for customers are more diverse than ever before. This team will use analytics and strong processes to provide the right plan for the supply and installations teams to execute.
Our goal is to make sure that our product is installed on as many aircraft as possible and our team is the key bridge to translate sales commitments and product upgrades into solid purchasing and delivery plans through the S&OP process. The Demand Planning department will collaborate with Regional VP’s, Product VP’s and Engineering teams to make sure equipment and resources are available to meet installation and maintenance needs. This activity will drive the success of our company and directly impacts revenue generation and cost control. Without a highly functioning demand plan, we will fail to service customers and meet financial goals.
We’re growing fast and it is a critical time for our Supply Chain team to develop world class processes with world class talent. With each role comes the opportunity to have direct impact on how this work is done. The right candidate will be someone that loves to take ownership and accountability for their goals, thinks independently, and isn’t afraid to take some risks to solve difficult problems. The people making great things happen today are passionate about our success and we can’t wait to add more committed teammates.
