Unlock your potential

Transform yourself before transforming your supply chain

use DDMRP to start innovating again

Is your planning method still relevant?

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.

Switching from MRP to DDMRP

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.

The b2wise application overview

Our end-to-end Demand Driven solution overview

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.

Key features of our solution

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
