Implementation of Demand Driven MRP
Before we examine the issue of implementing the DDMRP method, let’s take a look at its fundamentals, which explain why we are interested in this method and what makes it so innovative. The DDMRP is based on demand management. In fact, it is through demand management, or more specifically by considering demand as a key element of supply chain management that the DDMRP method stands out. We talk about a “pull” (demand-driven) logistic flow as opposed to the previously “push” (production-driven) one.
Every company that places demand at the center of its activities should be interested in the DDMRP method. But what is its function within the company? How can it be implemented?
