Phil Heenan, CFPIM, CSCP, CLTD, CS&OP, has various Supply Chain, Operations, Purchasing and Logistics qualifications and has held various positions on the Australasian Production & Inventory Control Society since joining. He is in great demand for his practical education, management coaching and consulting services throughout the Asia Pacific region where he pioneered S&OP and “Class A” MRPII, assisting management in dramatically reducing inventories, increasing customer service levels, whilst improving profits and efficiencies.

He was Group Logistics Manager for The Beatrice Confectionery Group where he worked for 14 years. As the Full Time MRPII/DRP Project Manager for Beatrice he was the first in Victoria to achieve the internationally awarded “Class A” MRPII award at Europe Health Foods. He was also the first to achieve “Class A” in Sales & Operations Planning in a multi-site environment; 9 companies, 9 plants and 27 distribution centres.

He was a founding director of Oliver Wight Australia and an Oliver Wight Education Associate from 1988-1993.  He has been involved directly in over 35 “Class A” Accreditations, and indirectly a further 20, assisting companies or educating managers in Australia, Japan, Korea, China, The Philippines, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia and New Zealand. His client list includes an enviable list of Best Practice, Australasian Manufacturers and Distributors however they still all achieved outstanding business and profit improvements through Phil’s experienced coaching and education.

In 1990 he wrote the chapter on how to implement “Class A” DRP/S&OP based on his experience at Beatrice in the Gower Handbook of Logistics Management edited by John Gattorna. He also contributed to the S&OP Best Practices book by Dougherty & Gray and is mentioned in “S&OP The How To Handbook” by Wallace and Stahl.
