Profit Center Analytics for Manufacturers

Presented by

Danny Smith, SAS Manufacturing Practice; Bahadir Aral, Advanced Analytics, SAS

About this talk

According to a recent study by Bain & Co., realized price affects EBIT more than any other lever: for every 1% increase in realized price there is an 8% increase in EBIT. Yet most companies expend great efforts on improving other levers with less impact and longer time-to-benefit. Most focus on aggressively reducing variable costs, but a 1% reduction in variable costs only leads to a 3% increase in EBIT, and takes much longer to achieve. Applying advanced analytics to improve company performance is increasingly popular for manufacturers, from quality to reliability to supply chain. To make the most from analytics-based competitive advantage manufacturers need to challenge their existing approach to pricing, and stop leaving money on the table. Join us to: * hear the different ways analytics can help with pricing design, analysis and optimization * understand the underlying mathematical approaches, technologies and deployments * learn from other manufacturers experiences through case studies
