Food & Beverage Supply Chains, Simplified

Order out of Chaos

Get a Fresh View on Inventory

Food & Beverage companies are used to planning around demanding customers, short shelf lives, and seasonal events and promotions.

Yet new regulations, fast-changing trends, increased supply chain complexity, and thin margins have strained existing MRP based planning methods. Inventory accuracy and availability are long-held challenges. Executives struggle to gain the visibility they need to optimize plans and respond to demand volatility.

A New Approach to Food & Beverage Supply Chain Challenges

Traditional F&B planning relies on forecasts to anticipate demand. Yet the industry’s rapidly increasing SKU counts have had a dramatic impact on forecast accuracy. Holding higher inventories cuts into already thin margins, to say nothing of product freshness.

Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) aligns replenishment not to forecasts but to market demand from actual customer orders. It works by establishing—and dynamically adapting—inventory buffers of key materials, maintaining efficient flow that flexes with changing demand. The result: better visibility, improved fill rates, and reduced inventory levels.

How it Works

DDMRP helps planners align inventory by triggering materials replenishment based on actual demand, rather than inaccurate forecasts. There are five sequential components:

Demand Driven MRP in Food & Beverage

Case Study: Reduce Inventory by 29% Within the First 8 weeks.

“If I had to summarize DDMRP into one word, it would be visibility. We are able to see, at first glance, the actual status of our raw materials and finished goods, which guides us in the right direction to do replenishments in the right order.”

Steven Wicks, Planning Manager, Namibia
