The Demand Driven Institute offers a suite of co-branded and fully endorsed simulations and workshops that teach various aspects of the Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise Model.  Simulations are offered throughout the world as both public or in-house events.  To inquire about an in-house event please contact the game provider directly with the links provided below.





DDBrix - A Leading Management Game to Discover and Deploy DDMRP and DDDRP

Play with Lego to see first-hand how DDMRP/DDDRP buffers optimize the flow of both materials and information. Observe how demand-driven planning and execution will increase order fulfillment, stabilize production, reduce working capital and alleviate stress.  Involve people from Finance, Marketing, Sales, Production, Planning and Quality to start breaking down silos, promoting teamwork and getting everyone in the company thinking about FLOW and DDMRP.  Refresh your existing knowledge of DDMRP while playing and having fun!  Programs for Universities are available!  Download the DDBrix brochure.  Forward inquiries about the workshop to

Why do you need to manage skills in your company?

A lack of alignment in a company's skill bases can slow down or even stop flow. The Demand Driven Skills Model (DDSM) enables a company to decide where to locate and how to size skill buffers based on the Demand Driven logic and depending on desired strategic priorities. It gives visibility on the multi-skills of all employees, including top management, and values those that promote and protect flow and accelerate ROI. The DDSM encourages the effective management of human capital through the transmission of knowledge, continuous improvement of products and processes, and integration of innovations in the Demand Driven Operating Model.


This Workshop is right for you if you are facing issues like:

  • Your flows are at risk because some skills are missing

  • Silos between departments interrupt or disrupt flow

  • You don’t know how to prioritize training and development to better protect flow

  • Managers don’t have the time to train or trainers are not recognized

  • Innovations are seen as disruptive to processes


Join the DDSM Workshop over two half-days and learn how to:

  1. Spot the holes in your multi-skills matrix to draw your competency map

  2. Measure the level of expertise of your departments

  3. Monitor maturity of change by transverse processes that support flow

  4. Clarify the roles of manager versus trainer to value knowledge

  5. Align strategy with competitivity and competency

A Demand Driven S&OP Experience by TFC

This one-day unique Demand Driven S&OP Experience workshop will allow you and your team to experience and test implementing DDMRP buffers in a simulated environment powered by The Fresh Connection (TFC).  The workshop discusses the broad concepts of the Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) buffer methodology, practices decision-making and participants experience the positive impact of buffer implementation in a risk-free environment. The workshop then follows an S&OP process to discover how implementing buffers in a budget constrained environment, typical of the real-world, can still deliver high service level expectations. This, while systematically reducing inventory investment AND achieving an expected Return on Investment. The experience provides a platform for organizational change management, builds confidence for your DDMRP implementation project and is relevant for leadership and/or operational staff.   This workshop is co-branded and fully endorsed by the Demand Driven Institute.  Forward inquiries about the workshop to Caroline Mondon

Two Demand Driven Simulations from Agilea

AGILEA and the Demand Driven Institute (DDI) announced the co-branding and distribution of 2 serious games. These simulations will help participants understand the Demand Driven environment and mechanisms.  Each simulation is run as a separate event.

Flow Simulation Game

This is a role simulation game where participants have to manage a supply chain with the following objectives : deliver customer on time and at the lowest total supply chain costs..

They will have to:

  • deliver customer orders

  • place orders to suppliers.

  • define inventory policy and manage inventory level

  • manage DDMRP buffers stock

4 teams with 2 to 4 players max (16 players Max).

DD Prod

Participants play in pairs, on a computer-based simulation. Each group compete against the others, in managing a leather goods workshop. They must deliver the right quantity on-time while maximizing profit. Players will manage purchases, resources and discover bottleneck and Drum-Buffer-Rope concepts.
