Chad Smith, Partner & Program Director of Demand Driven Institute will present. Smith authored Orlicky's Materials Requirements Planning and one of the chief architects of the DDMRP (Demand Driven MRP) methodology. Smith will discuss the following at the event:
· Strategic lead time compression for maximum market impact
· Improve inventory velocity and system flow
· End to end visibility and priority alignment
· Significantly reduce or eliminate expedite related expenses
“The conventional planning rules and tools that have been in place for over 40 years are breaking down in the face of growing supply chain complexity and volatility,”
Attendees of the webinar will see concepts that global leaders are using to transform their supply chains. They will see a way to run supply chains without the disastrous effects of forecast error, intuitive end to end planning, and an execution approach. Smith will explore why MRP and DRP (Distribution Resource Planning) are satisfying needs in today’s complex markets.
