    R.A. Stahl Company & TF Wallace Company

Unfortunately, Tom passed away on March 4th, 2021, ending a very formidable career.

His contributions will be missed, not only by me, but by our entire supply chain community.

His obituary, letter of retirement, and complete bio can still be found in the section about him on our website.

For over 50 years Bob Stahl has been helping executives and managers acquire superior decision-making processes.  These skills are essential in a complex, rapidly changing environment that puts a premium on high customer service, wide product variety, quick response and low cost. For these reasons, Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) is a practice that should be at the heart of the executive management toolkit.

This website is a quick and easy way to access some of the most cutting edge information about Sales & Operations Planning. S&OP is a set of decision-making processes designed to balance demand and supply, to fully integrate financial and operational planning, and to provide a forum for establishing and linking strategic plans with day-to-day operations.

If you are not familiar with S&OP, there is a detailed explanation included on the S&OP 101 page. 

In addition, there is a plethora of free downloads reflecting Bob's experiences working with companies implementing Sales & Operations Planning. These are expressed in publications, columns, essays, and materials from his lectures and seminars that are included on this site.

Additionally, Bob and Tom have written a series of books that help guide managers and companies through the process of implementing and effectively managing S&OP Planning.  These books are supported by in-person education and consultation, as well as his virtual on-line support. 

Please take a little time to peruse our bookstore or our Implementation & Support page to see if we can be of help with your specific situation.
