Ultriva Offers Webinar for Supply Chain Leaders Tomorrow

Ultriva Offers Webinar for Supply Chain Leaders Tomorrow on Consumption Based Replenishment

 
PRLog - Aug. 5, 2014 - Ultriva is offering a highly anticipated webinar addressing how Demand Driven MRP (Material Requirements Planning) and consumption based replenishment can benefit the supply chain management and operations. The webinar, titled “Demand Driven MRP and Consumption Based Replenishment” will be held on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 at 1:00 pm EST.

Registration at: https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/196628943 (https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/196628943)

Chad Smith, Partner & Program Director of Demand Driven Institute will lead the webinar. Smith who authored Orlicky's Materials Requirements Planning and is one of the chief architects of the DDMRP (Demand Driven MRP) methodology, 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

Webinar attendees will learn concepts used by global leaders to transform supply chains.  Focusing on execution without the disastrous effects of forecast errors, Smith will explore why MRP and DRP (Distribution Resource Planning) fail to satisfy needs in today’s complex markets.

Smith suggested, “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. As a result inventories have ballooned, services have degraded, and expedited related expenses have skyrocketed.  Most supply chain personnel know about these difficulties but are caught in a huge dilemma between working within the system and working outside the system.”

Smith will be joined by Narayan Laksham, CEO of Ultriva, who will focus on how consumption based replenishment complements the DDMRP methodologies. A real life deployment will be discussed as well.
