A Demand Driven S&OP Experience with The Fresh Connection

Demand Driven MRP is the latest advancement in Supply Chain Theory. Built on the experience of Supply Chain practitioners over the past 50 years, this holistic approach goes beyond traditional challenges faced with MRP and cost centric practices, to a new process aimed at managing flow and agility. DDMRP is based on actual throughput, so forecasts play no part in replenishment!

A Demand Driven S&OP Experience with The Fresh Connection will be presented by Tracy Cheetham

The dates are to be announced for the Online The Fresh Connection Workshop (TFC) in November 2020

Tracy Cheetham (CPIM, CSCP, SCOR-P, PLS, CDDP) APICS Recognised Instructor, Master Instructor for The Fresh Connection supply chain simulation platform, CEO and founder of ParadoxSolve LLC. Her specialty is experiential learning workshops based on best-in-class supply chain content (DDI; APICS) coupled with business simulation. She is Co-designer of the Demand Driven Sales and Operations Planning (DDS&OP) Experience with The Fresh Connection workshop.

DDS&OP with TFC Workshop

This unique 1.5 day Demand Driven S&OP (DDS&OP) Experience workshop will allow you and your team to experience and test the implementation of DEMAND DRIVEN MATERIAL REQUIREMENTS PLANNING (DDMRP) buffers in a simulated business environment powered by THE FRESH CONNECTION (TFC).
Specifically designed for senior or executive management and personnel seeking to demystify the demand driven methodologies, or who are required to support a DDMRP implementation. Presented with typical business constraints and challenges, participants go through a DDS&OP process to implement DDMRP. Using fundamental Demand Driven buffer rules teams discover the power and impact of DDMRP buffers strategically positioned to protect the flow.

“All benefits will be directly related to the speed of flow of information and materials.” George Plossl

This workshop provides a broad and practical decision-making experience of implementing DDMRP buffer configuration in a simulated real-world environment. We cover concepts of DDMRP buffer methodology and experience the positive impact in a risk-free environment. The workshop progresses through the phases of buffer configuration, the Demand Driven Operating Model (DDOM) activities, through to initiation of DDS&OP processes.

You will discover how implementing buffers in a budget constrained environment, typical of the real-world, can satisfy high service level expectations while systematically reducing inventory investment AND achieving an expected Return on Investment. The experience provides a platform for organizational change management, builds confidence for your DDMRP, DDOM and DDS&OP projects and is relevant for senior and executive business leaders as well as key operational leadership.

About Demand Driven

Demand Driven MRP at its core is a methodology to manage inventory in simple to complex and dynamic environments Any company that experiences inventory shortages or overages, frequent schedule changes, unacceptable customer service or over-stressed employees will benefit. Does this sound like your business?

Why you should attend

You will see managing the optimal range of the right inventory can be easier given the proper tools, training and analytics. You will experience achieving high service levels while reducing inventory levels using demand driven buffer methodology and adopting a Demand Driven Operating Model. You will gain the understanding that Sales & Operations Planning truly can be a bi-directional conversation. On completion delegates will have a good grasp of the Demand Driven methodologies, be able to motivate or make decisions on whether to pursue DDMRP as a business solution and support their DDPP and DDLP certified project leads during a DDMRP implementation.

Introducing Demand-Driven Replenishment (DDRP) in SAP S/4HANA

During the session on Tuesday am 8th September there will be a presentation and discussion about the implementation of DDMRP methodology in SAP S/4HANA. Over the next few years existing SAP implementations in ECC6 will be converted to SAP S/4HANA, this is a unique opportunity to see how DDMRP has been introduced by SAP into SAP S/4HANA.

This workshop is co-branded and fully endorsed by the DEMAND DRIVEN INSTITUTE:
