When people say *"Planning"*

What do they usually mean?

Demand Planning?

Supply Planning?

Sales and Operations Planning?

Inventory Management?

Transportation Planning?

I am sure it varies, but in your experience which one is more common?

Definitely varies but supply planning and demand planning are the most common. Inventory would more likely be called inventory management rather than planning

I think of DP/IP/ RP or SP, but I don't think there's one universal definition

Depends on the organization. Usually firms separate transportation and materials planning functions so that’s the only one I would say usually isn’t generally included in “planning”

FYI, context:

I was quizzed today by the clients VP of Operational Excellence on some "technical" details of the Plan for Every Part "PFEP" and while I did answer correctly I struggled for a moment. And then was told I need to brush up on my Planning knowledge.

I didn't want to sound dumber or risk insulting him by asking which planning he meant. I think PFEP is considered part of inventory management though...

This is helpful thank you. I am familiar with PFEPs and their uses. I just never stopped to think as to where they fit in the traditional supply chain models.

Depends on who us asking
