DDMRP – A SMARTER WAY
Real customer orders trigger the planning and execution processes for the required materials. Together with relevant information about processes, suppliers, and capacity, DDMRP contributes to synchronized material flow. This synchronization results in stable processes with a minimum of rescheduling and emergency changes. Most companies can benefit from Demand Driven in their company by lowering inventory, raising on-time delivery, and lead time reduction.
DDMRP is a layered approach, in which customer orders trigger the top-down planning of materials following the levels of the Bill of Material. Flow is supported by flow buffers, based on process, product, and capacity parameters. The buffers are dynamically sized based changes in these parameters. Customer-order-driven DDMRP works with clear priorities for planning as well as execution.
