    Free Workshop DDMRP: Focus on Flow 

    Now is the chance to shape an informed opinion about DDMRP. DDMRP promises shorter lead times in the supply chain, including product combined with lower inventories and higher levels of customer service. The event for APICS Certified professionals will be on October 26, 2018 at Newitera in Beuningen from 12:00 until 17:00. 

    This event is free of charge for APICS Certified professionals trained by Visie Partners or Verwoerd Consult and for APICS members.

    MRP creates challenging planning and execution issues that are addressed by DDMRP.

    But what is exactly wrong with materials requirements planning (MRP)? 

    Being responsible for inventory and production planning requires you to have an opinion on DDMRP and how it avoids MRP problems. What if your manager asks you: Could DDMRP help us increase our profit and ROI by improving customer service while reducing inventory levels at the same time?

    After this interactive workshop, you have a good impression and an informed opinion about DDMRP. The Demand Driven Operating model is not just about MRP bashing, it’s an innovative framework based on the concepts of Lean, Theory of Constraints, Six Sigma and MRP.

    Nowadays, we have to deal with more supply chain dynamics and fragmentation than ever before, so it’s a real challenge to plan inventories. Times are changing and as a result the need for optimization and improvement of material planning is growing. Leading companies like Louis Vuitton, British Telecom, Shell Lubricants, Michelin and many others are already convinced of the relevancy of the Demand Driven Operating Model.
