First there was MRP, then there was MRP II and now we have DDMRP - Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning.

DDMRP is  a method to model, plan and manage supply chains to protect and promote the flow of relevant information and materials. DDMRP uses strategic decoupling inventory points of inventory to drive supply order generation and management throughout a supply chain.

This was first articulated by the Demand Driven Institute after 15 years of research and extensive application. Through innovation, critical planning needs are fused with mainstream improvement disciplines based on flow. Join us for a presention and small introduction to this new planning and procurement methodology created by the Demand Driven Institute.
