There is an inconvenient truth with the world of Supply Chain Planning. MRP, the primary function of almost all ERP and APS solutions is not 'delivering the goods' anymore.

The fact that planners spend a large amount of time augmenting their forecast driven MRP solution with Excel spreadsheet based calculations and ‘best endeavours’ in an attempt to stay in control of supply and production planning is an obvious sign that something is not right.

Is it not time to make a change? Can a concept introduced over 60 years ago that has fundamentally not changed still be relevant in today’s complex, global supply chains?

Join us to learn more about how to change the way organisations plan and radically improve the performance of their businesses. This can be achieved through leveraging a new planning concept called Demand Driven Material Requirement Planning (DDMRP).

The Sames Kremlin DDMRP project case study will be presented which won the prestigious ‘King of Supply Chain’ in France which is awarded by the Supply Chain Magazine for best Supply Chain project in France.

The case study will demonstrate to you, how you can transfer your supply chain into a competitive weapon.
