Hello, my name is Yasin Mandi and I am operation & planning consultant @ NASQ-consultancy firm.

I am working for one of the leading manufacturing FMCG company (Sunbulah Group) in the ME and also worked for Sealy Mattress who holds the most highly recognized brands in the industry.

The privilege I enjoyed during my work life is that I handled multiple roles for almost 1 ½ decade which sharpened my technical skills. I can say my expertise lies in several fields in supply chain & manufacturing function, as well.

In supply chain management, I was responsible for; Master Production Scheduling (MPS)in which I have planned more than 500 finished goods items & more than 25 production lines capacities. Also, I have carried out Material Requirement Planning (MRP) for more than 600 items. In addition, I handled Purchasing, Logistics, Warehousing, Material Handling, New Initiatives and Supply Planning Management. Furthermore, my very special assignment that I am very proud of; was leading Sales & Operation Planning (S&OP) role.

In Manufacturing Management field, I managed different scopes; for example the core one was Production & Operation Control. I handled huge number of manpower (>450 employees) & their scheduling, as well. I was also responsible about Quality Assurance, Maintenance Planning, Budgeting, overall plant performance, etc.

I have always been fascinated by implementing the best practices of integrated supply chain planning & customizing ERP systems to cope up with business requirements to ensure supply performance is at peak.

Today, what I posses as knowledge or skill is not what been written in books only, but it is what been written in books & really are implementable tactics & strategies.
