Topic:  Demand-Driven Supply Chain Management

Speaker:  Markus Geutler

Details:  How to transform the performance of your supply chain and become truly demand-driven.

Demand-driven SCM turns out to be the emerging new paradigm for the efficient planning and management of today’s complex supply chains to deliver transformational and resilient business performance

Discover how this innovative approach allows companies to become truly demand driven and achieve their planned service levels at lower costs, significantly less average stock and with no requirement for highly accurate forecasts.

Demand-driven SCM involves positioning the right quantities of stock where they are needed up and down the decoupled supply chain and topping them up, as they are consumed, in a stable and repetitive sequence. In this way materials and products are pulled through the supply chain using a simple “make to replace” and “ship to replace” mechanism in line with actual demand without any need for expensive and disruptive expediting and intervention.

Especially important for process industries, a cyclic-based production planning approach based on “Rhythm Wheels” extends the demand-driven concept to shop floor level.

During the presentation, Markus will provide real live examples and case studies.
