Course Overview

The Demand Driven Planner Program was designed with the specific purpose to educate Supply Chain & Operations Management personnel on the methods and applications of Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP).

DDMRP- Demand Driven Materials Requirement Planning is a way to reduce lead time, absorb incredible amounts of supply chain variability and volatility, and improve return on capital employed all at the same time and all without compromise.

DDMRP is a formal planning and execution method which, by focusing on flow, is designed to provide benefits in:

  • Achievement of above 98% customer service levels
  • Revenue maximization
  • Inventory reduction of around 40%
  • Expense minimization
  • Cash flow improvement

 

If online examination is written via ISCEA then an International Certified Demand Driven Leader certification will be obtained.
