How to achieve step-change improvements in supply chain performance when forecasts are totally unreliable



Supply Chains are under pressure. “Progress on the key performance metrics of cost, customer service, inventory, and Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) are going backward; not forwards, for most companies” says renowned supply chain analyst Lora Cecere. There is one fundamental root cause for all these issues and we will explore it in this webinar. And since almost 10 years there is a solution designed to specifically address it. It’s the Demand Driven methodology with DDMRP at its core.

Join this webinar to discover how the Demand Driven methodology addresses the root cause for poor supply chain performance. The webinar will discuss the fundamental principles of the Demand Driven methodology and will review several case studies across all industry to show how it has helped many companies like yours achieve step-change improvements in operational performance.

What do we mean by step change improvements?

  • Perfect service,
  • 20, 30, 40, even 50% less inventory,
  • Elimination of 90% of firefighting and expediting expenses,
  • 50% (or more) reduction of planning effort,
  • Enhanced agility: ability to respond better to supply chain disruptions.

Demand Driven is not a software tool: it is the culmination of 50 years of best practices from traditional planning, Lean, Theory of Constraints, Six Sigma + some great innovation.
