Transform yourself before transforming your supply chain
Since 2014, a significant change has appeared in global manufacturing and supply chain operations.
The primary planning methodology of forecast driven MRP that was developed over 40 years ago to manage manufacturing and purchasing flows is causing high inventories, poor service levels and overcapacities issues. Hence many companies now consider these techniques obsolete.
A new flow-based methodology born in the US, called DDMRP, is challenging the status quo by augmenting MRP with techniques such as Lean, Theory of Constraints, Visual Management and 6 SIGMA.
Although Demand Driven Management is not revolutionary, it represents a major change for companies that have historically ‘grown-up with MRP’ and invested millions of dollars and a whole lot of time in their MRP based demand, inventory and supply based planning systems.
Many IT departments in big companies are reluctant to switch and hence companies will require a very strong leadership to steer the company through the process.
To switch, leaders will need to focus on 3 areas; education, change management and finding a new software solution.
DDBrix is a very visual and powerful way to understand DDMRP. I love it!
The MRP path has been trodden for so long, it is completely beat up! DDbrix takes you beyond the beaten path and puts you on the road to new horizons.
DDBrix is an extraordinary Tool for allowing SC Professionals from Purchasing, Manufacturing and Distribution to understand how to apply the DDMRP Methodology on a funny and practical way.
In the DDL Training I loved the simplicity of the concepts and of the way to implement them, high energy of presenters!
b2wise is the only software company that provides training and that’s the reason why we have developed a deep insight into how DDMRP practically works across multiple industry verticals.
In addition, because of our pratical on-the-ground experience gained from over 80 projects you can safely assume that we know the process and that we have the experience to make the training more relevant to your needs.

b2wise is building a fully integrated end-to-end supply chain planning application with Demand Driven at the core. Our aim is to provide a single application that meets all our client planning needs. Our goal is to be a leader in the Gartner Supply Chain Planning System of Record.
Building a fully integrated end-to-end supply chain planning application is not an easy task and will take time. Our strategy is to work extremely close with our customers and prioritize our product roadmap based on their planning needs
Becoming Demand Driven is not just about a new order recommendation engine that uses actual demand and not the forecast within the operational range to trigger replenishment. The Demand Driven solution needs to cover both the tactical and strategic ranges as well as provide visibility across the global end-to-end supply chain. The Demand Driven solution must be able to map a process, embrace all the advancements in AI, ML and predictive analytics, be scalable globally, integrate seamlessly with the ERP system and provide all the necessary performance analytics to run the projections, compare scenarios and sign-off on the S&OP process.
b2wise was built on site in a number of global DDMRP run factories and distribution environments suppported by leading DDMRP planning professionals and consultancies. Apart from all the DDMRP and supply chain planning functions, b2wise was built around the planners so as to make their jobs easier. The application was built on the principles that an optimal performing supply chain needs to be visible, agile, responsive and open to change. One size does not fit all.
b2wise provides a flexible interface to allow users to map their data files from any source. For SAP and D365 clients b2wise provides a fully integrated solution that makes the set-up and data mapping extremely light touch for the IT department. Once data files are mapped, data transfers can be manually executed through the interface or automated using the built-in sFTP or HTTPS data transfer options
