As supply chains continue to become more complex and dynamic, there is a growing need for professionals with specialized skills and knowledge to manage them effectively. One such skill is demand-driven planning, which focuses on aligning supply chain operations with actual customer demand. If you’re interested in developing your expertise in this area, then the upcoming Demand Driven Planner class in Zurich in June 2023 is an event you won’t want to miss.
Demand driven planning is a methodology that emphasizes the importance of synchronizing supply chain activities with real-time customer demand. Unlike traditional planning methods, which often rely on forecasts and assumptions, demand-driven planning uses actual demand signals to inform inventory management, production scheduling, and other supply chain functions.
Demand-driven planning aims to create a more responsive and resilient supply chain that can quickly adapt to changes in customer demand, market conditions, and other factors. By reducing reliance on static forecasts and increasing flexibility, demand-driven planning can help organizations optimize their operations, improve customer service, and reduce costs.
The Demand Driven Institute has created the Demand Driven Planner (DDP)™ Program to educate individuals responsible for implementing and maintaining a DDMRP implementation in planning, purchasing, and supply chain operations. This program, which includes 13 modules, offers an in-depth education on DDMRP and has been designed by leading DDMRP experts. The DDP Program is recognized as the official preparatory course for the Demand Driven Planner Professional (DDPP)™ certification exam.
This training program consists of 13 modules that provide comprehensive education on Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP).
The first module discusses the challenges of traditional planning in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world. The importance of flow and its relationship with company ROI and relevance are covered in the second module.
Module three delves into decoupling, a key element in addressing inventory misalignment and the bullwhip effect. In module four, the Demand Driven Operating Model and the five components of DDMRP are introduced, followed by an in-depth discussion on strategic inventory positioning and distribution network positioning in modules five and six, respectively.
Buffer profiles and levels are covered in module seven, followed by dynamic buffer adjustment in module eight, which teaches how to adapt buffers to cope with constantly changing Demand and supply.
The core equation of DDMRP and the management of dependent Demand are discussed in module nine, while the importance of highly visible and collaborative execution is covered in module ten.
Module eleven explores the impact of DDMRP on scheduling and WIP priority management, followed by a discussion of DDMRP-specific metrics for sales and operations planning in module twelve.
The program ends with a review of the benefits of DDMRP and a roadmap for getting started, as well as information on how to prepare for and pass the DDPP certification exam.
