    Cycle Supply Chain Planning: Masterclass Pragmatic Inventory Management, Masterclass Demand Planning / Forecasting, Training  Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP)

    The DDMRP method introduces a multi-level solution for material & stock planning. Demand Driven MRP (DDMRP) enables a transition from ‘Push & Promotion’ to ‘Position & Pull’. DDMRP can be applied in purchasing, production and distribution processes (source, make & deliver).

    The DDMRP Approach consists of five steps that will be covered during this introduction: Strategic Inventory Positioning, Buffer setting, Buffer adjustments, Planning and Execution.

    Optimact, Xeleos Consulting and PICS Belgium have developed a unique and very practical training based on their extensive experience.

    • The training examines the sub-domains in which the discipline takes place: strategy, processes, organization and systems. As a result, you will not only recognize the importance of DDMRP, but also the financial impact that can be realized. You will learn:

      • How to achieve a reduction in your costs and more stable schedules
      • How to apply buffer adjustments to absorb variability
      • How to make status calculations based on information
      • How to determine strategic buffer positions
      • The principles of flow and management of stocks

    • The basis in the program are cases, both example cases presented by the lecturers and cases from the participants themselves. By discussing the cases with the other participants, they become ‘real life cases’, in which each participant receives support from the experience of the others. This contribution to your own case provides practical tips. It is always easier to rationally analyze other people’s cases. In this way, the training is not based on hypothetical examples, but every participant immediately experiences relevant feedback. For making the exercises it is recommended to bring a laptop.
