Supply Chain Planning's goal is to have the right material, in the right place, at the right time.
To do this, we work across the Sleep Number organization to develop long-range plans that can be translated into supplier level forecasts. These forecasts are the ground work we use to work collaboratively with the Sourcing team and Suppliers to make sure there is adequate production capabilities and inventory supermarkets to meet our dynamic customer needs.
