Demand Driven Sales and Operations Planning A Fresh Approach to S&OP

Date: September 2, 2021

Throughout the manufacturing and distribution industries, companies have found the traditional approach to S&OP challenging to implement since it requires a robust management system and substantial organizational commitment to achieve results. Many companies have abandoned their S&OP process as they find the effort to align demand, supply, and capacity plans is undermined by changing market conditions and forecast variance. Demand Driven S&OP (DDS&OP) focuses on building a business model driven by increased flexibility and adaptability providing an approach to S&OP which reduces S&OP workload while yielding improved results. DDS&OP prioritizes exception management and responsiveness which focuses management on business priorities.

There’s a Better Way to Plan: Replenishment+ for Microsoft Dynamics 365 BC & F&O

Date: September 29, 2021
Time: 11:00 AM
– 12:00 PM EST

Every day, manufacturers and distributors are forced to make operational decisions without enough information. Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) for Dynamics 365 BC & F&O is revolutionizing supply chain performance. Now distributors using Dynamics 365 BC & F&O to manage their business can build an even more agile and responsive supply chain with Demand Driven Technologies materials planning solution, Replenishment+.

In this one-hour webinar, you will learn how Replenishment+, available on AppSource, provides:

  • Alignment of materials planning to true market demand.
  • Reduction in bullwhip effect up and down the supply chain.
  • Seamless two-way integration eliminating the need for cumbersome manual importing and exporting.
  • Administrators granular control over the configuration, so they can decide how and where DDMRP principles are implemented in their operations.
  • Planners the ability to identify critical priorities instantly and focus resources on what matters.

Boost Fill Rates and Free Working Capital with DDMRP

Date: June 30, 2021

Today’s companies are challenged with hard-to-identify signals, increasing number of SKUs, shorter lead times, less reliable forecasts, and customer demand. But, in an increasingly complex and volatile world, they are still using the conventional supply chain management methods devised in the 1960s – aka traditional MRP. By doing so, they fight to maintain fill rates at the expense of working capital.

The Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) methodology was developed to address planning in a volatile, complex, uncertain, and ambiguous (VUCA) supply chain world. As the global leader in DDMRP implementations, our Replenishment+ software delivers improved results without additional stress or difficulties standard forecasting produces. With dynamic reorder points adjusted daily based on your actual true market demand, DDMRP allows planners to focus on areas or items that are critical to company success while trusting that everything else is running smoothly.

Watch this webinar presented by Victor Hart, an Account Executive at Demand Driven Technologies who will show you how you can:

  • Eliminate the reliance on spreadsheets and forecasts
  • Trust the information provided from the materials planning tool
  • Gain improved visibility into your supply chain operations
  • Free up working capital

How YUKO Lubricants Improved Supply Chain Flow

Date: May 27, 2021

YUKO comprises modern automotive and industrial oils, lubricants, cooling and lubricating fluids, forming fluids, service products that comply with international quality standards. They have permits of automobile manufactures and are exported to more than 70+ countries of the CIS, USA, Europe, Africa and Asia.

Yuko experienced a few challenges that are common among many supply chains:

  • Difficulty understanding when to have specific components in stock in time for production
  • Simultaneously having an overstock and understock of various components
  • Unreliable production schedule
  • Late deliveries leading to lower services levels

After searching for the right solution for their company, they discovered DDMRP and adopted Replenishment+. “DDMRP opened our eyes to the truth, it turns out there was no need to look for information we didn’t know, we already had this information, we just misinterpreted it.”

Sviatoslav Ollinky, ABM Cloud/DDI Master Instructor led the implementation of Replenishment+ and will highlight Yuko Lubricants journey in this upcoming webinar.

Where does your ERP fall short?

Date: February 24, 2021

As customer demands are on the rise, product proliferation has increased, resulting in complex supply chains. Companies are eager to find a solution that does it all, with the assumption that one tool will make their lives easier. In reality, they are often expensive to implement and don’t meet customer demands.Demand Driven MRP is built for the complex supply chain to simplify planning, providing planners the ability to focus on what truly matters. While every supply chain is different in their processes and objectives, this end to end methodology takes a new approach to planning and execution to provide greater visibility throughout your entire supply chain.

Enhance planning efficiency and materials flow with Replenishment+ NS
