To increase the efficiency and effectiveness of your increasingly complex supply chain in today’s ever more volatile markets is a hard task. Innovative operational and strategic approaches are needed to cope with the resulting complexity and volatility. Traditional approaches such as APS and S&OP have reached their limits. Learn more about how to deliver the paradigm-changing Demand-Driven MRP concept based on the state-of-the-art technology SAP IBP.
Conventional Supply Chain planning practices rely heavily on forecasting. However, in today’s volatile business environment, these forecasts are always wrong and for most products by more than 50%, also in consumer goods business. Consequently, the wrong quantities are sourced, made or shipped to the wrong places which leads to very poor balanced inventories and customers not getting the services they want. The question is: How to improve and how to overcome the need for certainty in operational planning in volatile, uncertain, complex and dynamic business environments?
This is where Demand-Driven Materials Requirement (DDMRP) comes in. The DDMRP concept uses actual demand instead of error-prone forecasts to drive replenishment through a de-coupled supply chain, which is a genuine paradigm shift.
Camelot has developed in co-operation with SAP the worldwide first enhancement for SAP Integrated Business Planning (IBP) to deliver the paradigm-changing Demand-Driven MRP concept based on the state-of-the-art technology SAP IBP.
