Planning and executing in the 21st century
At IPros we are convinced that major changes in the way we plan and manage our Supply Chains are now becoming mandatory. Traditional planning and managing methods fall short under the current business environment:
High complexity - Supply chains extend across the globe, have longer lead times and more stakeholders.
High volatility - Innovation driven economy has created more product categories and larger assortments.
High expectations - Customers demand shorter delivery lead times and higher service levels.
At IPros, as an affiliate of the Demand Driven Institute, we help our customers navigate the transition to Demand Driven Supply Chain Management.
The elephant in the room
Let’s accept it, the most widely used planning system, Material Requirement Planning (MRP), is not delivering the promise anymore. Supply planners across all industries rely on Excel spreadsheets in an attempt to enhance their visibility and keep their supply planning under control.
What is DDMRP?
DDMRP is an innovative method for multi-echelon Supply Chain Planning & Execution. DDMRP integrates the best of MRP, DRP, Lean, 6 Sigma and the Theory of Constraints, outperforming formal planning methods (MRP or Lean based).
DDMRP implementations are delivering staggering results across a wide range of industries including Consumer Goods, Electronics, Technological and Industrial Equipment, Pharma, Biotech, Chemical, in make to order (MTO), make to stock (MTS) and mixed strategies (MTO/MTS).
