Demand Driven MRP

An innovative method of planning and execution activated only by confirmed customer orders

What is Demand Driven MRP?

The DDMRP is an innovative multi-echelon Supply Chain planning and execution method that only considers sales orders and in which the flow of products is protected through the positioning and management of strategic decoupling buffers.

The DDMRP, increasing the visibility of relevant information, allows you to obtain an easier supply orders release and a guided process of execution prioritisation.
