Understanding What to buy, When to buy & Where From
Procurement planners struggle every day with supplier constraints, perpetually changing material requirement plans and logistic issues. In addition to these challenges, planners are facing static constraints such as order/order line minimum, incremental quantities and values, ordering, shipping, and receiving calendars coupled with an ever-present pressure to reduce costs. While the supply chain organization directly controls 70-85% of the cost of goods manufactured within an organization and commodity price volatility at a record high, how can a procurement planner navigate the constraints in a profitable manner?

QAD DynaSys DSCP is Certified DDMRP Compliant by Demand Driven Institute
Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) is a unique and visual process to execute material requirements planning driven by a true demand signal. DDMRP is a proven, dynamic, and effective demand-driven solution to answer the complex challenges of the current manufacturing landscape. When used across a supply chain, DDMRP removes the cascading and compounding disruptions of the bullwhip effect that plague most supply chains today. DDMRP provides customers a planning experience that is agile and responsive, capabilities not always found in traditional planning methods. DDMRP has been proven across a wide array of industries and is quickly being adopted by leading companies across the world. It is an intuitive, pragmatic and transparent revolution in supply chain planning.
QAD DynaSys is the first global end-to-end supply chain planning technology provider to achieve this certification.
