Optimize supply chain performance with Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP)
Vancouver, BC – April 29, 2016
SYSPRO, a provider of award-winning, best-of-breed Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solution for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, today announced the release of a new manufacturing industry infographic, “Optimize Supply Chain Performance with Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP)” and accompanying white paper “Developing a Demand Driven Supply Chain Strategy—An Informational Guide for Manufacturing Leaders.” The new materials aim to introduce Canadian manufacturing leaders to the innovative business methodology of Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) and shed light on the value of embracing this new business concept.
In today’s competitive market landscape where volatility is the “new normal” and there is a driving emphasis on meeting customer demand and satisfaction, supply chain performance plays a critical role in manufacturing success. Leading manufacturing companies understand that how effectively they manage their supply chain and order management processes directly impacts their business outcomes. However, optimizing supply chain performance can be especially complicated in an environment of multi-tier, global supply chains.
Operations leaders need to ensure that their supply chain management process performs flawlessly, while maintaining overall cost control for their businesses. In order to do so, many face the common challenge of wanting to use an MRP system to support their manufacturing business, and at the same time, also wanting to incorporate Lean manufacturing principles. While the concepts behind Lean methodologies are good in theory, Lean practices do not always interact well with planning and purchasing systems, or other critical manufacturing operational systems.
Enter the next evolution of MRP and Lean Manufacturing—Demand Driven Materials Requirements Planning (DDMRP). DDMRP combines critical Material Requirements Planning tactics with the pull-based approaches of Lean manufacturing, in order to mitigate the effects of variability and volatility on manufacturing operations and supply chains—while keeping inventory strategically streamlined and costs at a minimum. Although DDMRP is a relatively new demand and supply planning and execution methodology, it has been massively successful in a wide array of business early adopters, such as Unilever.
“Most manufacturing leaders are familiar with the concepts of MRP and Lean manufacturing; however many are not aware of how DDMRP works and how it can be implemented to improve supply chain operations,” according to David Doyle, VP of Sales for SYSPRO Canada. “We want to raise the profile of this multi-echelon demand and supply planning methodology, and help Canadian manufacturers prepare their people, processes and technology for it.”
The infographic and white paper provide manufacturing executives with an overview of DDMRP, including:
- Why DDMRP is the solution for meeting today’s supply chain challenges
- How DDMRP provides a complete cradle-to-grave methodology for running a successful manufacturing business
- How to apply DDMRP methodology to improve manufacturing processes—and bottom line
