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

DDBrix - A Leading Management Game to Discover and Deploy DDMRP

Play with Lego to see first-hand how DDMRP 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

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.

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.
