In the third episode our Demand-Driven MRP Expert Webcast series, our experts share Demand-Driven success stories and give insights into our customers’ Demand-Driven journeys.
Quite a few of our customers have started their Demand-Driven journey with the help of CAMELOT’s Demand-Driven MRP experts. These companies are leaders in their industries because they strive to bring their supply chains to the next level as an answer to disruptive events as well as changes in customer behavior. In the third episode in our Demand-Driven MRP Expert Webcast series, Dr. Ulrich Wetterauer and Bastian Kunze show benefits based on three Demand-Driven case studies.
Introducing a Demand-Driven Operating Model in the Food & Beverages Industry
This example shows how Demand-Driven MRP is used to plan inventory buffers by combining it with CAMELOT’s Rhythm Wheel production planning approach. A Fortune-500 company from the food and beverages industry used this to optimize resource utilization, with the result that supply variability was dampened and production plans could be met.
Large-Scale End-to-End Integration on a Global Scale for a Household Appliances Manufacturer
The second Demand-Driven case study shows how end-to-end buffers help disrupt variability. Strategically placing buffers along the end-to-end supply chain created multiple fallback options or “lines of defense” against supply and demand variability. 2,000 employees were trained to achieve a global rollout of the systems, including the mindset behind it after a successful setup phase in core markets and production locations. The change affects 15,000 location-product combinations.
Realizing Vertical Integration in the Semiconductor Industry
Decisions in strategic and tactical planning are usually decoupled from operational planning. The concept of Demand-Driven Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) helps to adjust DDMRP parameters to link the impacts of strategical and tactical planning to operational planning. Thanks to this, there is an alignment between the Demand-Driven concept and the customer’s end-to-end process flow.
Demand-Driven Is a Major Step. The Vision: A Self-Driving Value Chain
These success stories show the potential of the Demand-Driven Model. If one looks further, a self-driving value chain can be the vision behind this. Our experts elaborate in the video’s last section how latest technology helps to create a true end-to-end supply chain with automated decision-making for standard cases. Here, supply chain systems of differentiation and decision-making and supply chain systems of innovation and intelligence provide the edge that makes a company a supply chain leader.
