Effective supply chain management is vital for any business’s success, and utilizing the right tools and techniques can make a significant impact. One of the most innovative methods in this field is the Demand Driven Material Requirement Planning (DDMRP) which enables companies to oversee their inventory and materials efficiently, ensuring an adequate amount of stock at the appropriate time, resulting in cost reduction and improved performance.
In 2023, Patrick Rigoni, a renowned expert in DDMRP, is conducting Demand Driven Planner classes in partnership with www.advanceschool.ch to assist professionals and organizations in implementing the DDMRP method in their operations. The formation will provide an in-depth understanding of the principles, tools and best practices of DDMRP and impart the necessary skills to enhance supply chain management.
Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) is a systematic method of managing the supply chain that ensures the smooth flow of information by strategically placing inventory management points to improve overall chain performance and optimize production planning.
It combines aspects of Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP) while incorporating elements of Lean and the Theory of Constraints, focusing on reducing Six Sigma variability. DDMRP is an innovative approach integrated into a Demand Driven Operating Model (DDOM) to generate and manage supply orders.
Patrick Rigoni is a respected figure in Demand Driven methodology and the founder of our organization. With over 15 years of experience in the supply chain industry, he has held operational and strategic roles.
He began his career in hands-on roles at J&J’s manufacturing plants. He became certified in Six Sigma, Lean methodology, computer simulation modeling, and as a Demand Driven Institute accredited instructor for Demand Driven Planner (DDP) and Demand Driven Learner (DDL). He recently got certified as a Demand Driven Operations Professional (DDOP) master.
In 2013, he co-founded SmartChain International LLP, a supply chain consultancy that helps clients improve their supply chains. As a founding partner, he played a vital role in making SmartChain the leading firm in supply chain management. He was instrumental in developing agile and Demand Driven concepts, oversaw many comprehensive supply chain transformations, and developed advanced Demand Driven simulation and customized assessment tools.
The Demand Driven Planner (DDP) program is developed for planning, purchasing, and supply chain management professionals who are responsible for implementing and maintaining a Demand Driven Material Requirement Planning (DDMRP) system. Created by experts in DDMRP at the Demand Driven Institute, the DDP program includes 13 in-depth modules of DDMRP education.
The program is the official preparatory course for the Demand Driven Planner Professional (DDPP)™ certification exam. Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate from the Demand Driven Institute.
