Agenda Overview: In a similar format to previous years, this year's conference will consist of several development presentations and application workshops. On the first day, we will review the state of GAINS and present some of the many improvements delivered in the past year. We will also present several topics of interest to the whole group. Thursday we will begin at 9AM and continue through the day until 5PM.
On the second day we will break into smaller groups (by application type / industry) to allow you to focus on areas most-salient to your organization. Sessions will include a forum for GAINS User Interface suggestions, a workshop on Sales, Inventory & Operations Planning (SI&OP), performance management & reporting capabilities, and more. GAINSystems' team of GAINS experts will lead one-on-one discussions with your organization and review the survey/ranking of your current usage of GAINS.
The first workshop session on Friday begins at 8:30AM and we target the last session to conclude at 2PM. The one-on-one discussion and review of current GAINS usage with GAINS experts can be scheduled after 2PM if scheduling requires it or a longer session is desired.
