How Does DDMRP Work in the Strategic Planning Horizon: Demand Driven Long Range Planning & Risk Management



The reality is that while the world around us rapidly changes, supply chain systems are not keeping pace. Current models are underperforming, with increased operational costs, unexpected stockouts, and low ROIs. For an increasing number of companies, DDMRP has proven the best solution to tackle these issues at the operational level. But what about when we look further ahead? Can DDMRP offer the answer to long-term supply chain planning and risk management?

Patrick Rigoni’s next webinar will explore these questions while discussing and reviewing:

  • DDMRP as an operational planning tool
  • How DDMRP expands into the tactical horizon: The Demand Driven Operating Model (DDOM) and DDS&OP
  • Management accounting principles for profit maximisation in the DDOM
  • Becoming Demand Driven in the strategic horizon: Sales & Operations Planning
  • Two case studies: Managing the launch of a summer soft drink and solving a capacity dilemma using the Demand Driven approach

Demand Driven is not a software tool but a culmination of 50+ years of the best practices of traditional supply chain planning. It builds upon this knowledge, adapting to the dynamic nature and unique quality of each supply chain. Step-change improvements are immediate and large scale improvements you will see in your supply chain like:

It builds upon this knowledge, adapting to the dynamic nature and unique quality of each supply chain. Step-change improvements are immediate and large scale improvements you will see in your supply chain like:

  • Virtually flawless service levels + faster response rates
  • Reducing inventory by 30-50%
  • Eliminating 90% of firefighting and expediting expenses
  • A highly organized, efficient, and well-managed supply chain

Fill out the form to find out how Demand Driven methodology can transform your supply chain on the long-term horizon. The webinar will be divided into 1.5 hours of training and discussion followed by a half-hour Q&A session. We look forward to connecting with you online and diving deep into DDMRP methodology on April 29, 10 o'clock!
