Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) – Unique Supply Chain Concept For IIM – IIT Wannabe Managers

DDMRP is a formal planning and execution method designed to correct the inadequacies and inappropriate rules of conventional Material Requirements Planning (MRP) given today’s more volatile, complex and service oriented supply and manufacturing scenarios.  The method was first fully articulated in the latest edition of Orlicky’s Material Requirements Planning (McGraw-Hill, 2011) co-authored by Carol Ptak and Chad Smith.  Chad Smith serves as the CDDP Program Director.
