industry 4.0: Adapt or Die

Why doesn’t the Industry 4.0 model work? In an effort to answer this question, experts and business representatives have met in the Chamber of Commerce of Bilbao in an event organized by Mondragon University and featuring Carol Ptak. [Run Time (Min.): 3:19]

Forging the Demand Driven Supply Chain: A Progress Report

Industry veteran Carol Ptak talks about her journey in promoting the concept of demand-driven supply chains, why companies have failed to achieve them in the past, and why they might finally be positioned to succeed now. [Run Time (Min.): 9:53]

A Conversation With 'The Father of S&OP'

IMore than 30 years ago, Dick Ling came up with the concept of sales and operations planning (S&OP). It has thrived ever since. Here, he talks about the genesis of the idea, how S&OP has developed over the years, and how it might evolve in future. [Run Time (Min.): 11:35]

MRP: Is it Still Relevant?

The notion of Material Requirements Planning is more relevant today than at any time in its decades-long history, says Chad Smith of the Demand Driven Institute. However, Smith says, the rules governing many MRP programs are out of date and need to be changed to more closely reflect actualdemand. Technology tools also need to improve, he says. From the 2011 APICS International Conference in Pittsburgh, PA.  [Run Time (Min.): 7:35]

Thought leader Presentations

 

An Introduction to the Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise Model (May 2017)

Carol Ptak, Dick Ling and Chad Smith take you through Adaptive Sales & Operations Planning, the strategic component of the Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise Model.  [Run Time (Min.): 1:00:35]

An Introduction to the Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise Model (May 2017)

Carol Ptak and Chad Smith discuss the framework to convert an organization to a Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise.  The Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise model is a management and operational model designed to enable enterprises to adapt to complex and volatile environments.  The model utilizes a constant system of innovation and feedback between three primary components; a Demand Driven Operating Model, Demand Driven S&OP and Adaptive S&OP.    [Run Time (Min.): 58:24]

An Introduction to the Demand Driven Operating Model (May 2017)

Carol Ptak and Chad Smith of the Demand Driven Institute walk through the three components of a Demand Driven Operating Model - Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning, Demand Driven Scheduling and Demand Driven Execution.  This video is from the May 2017 Demand Driven Webinar Series.    [Run Time (Min.): 54:21]

An Introduction to Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (May 2017)

This video is from the May 2017 Demand Driven Webinar Series.  In this video Carol Ptak And Chad Smith, authors of Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (Industrial Press, 2016) provide an in-dpeth presentation on the basics of DDMRP.  [Run Time (Min.): 53:35]

Precisely Wrong - The MRP Challenge in the 21st Century (May 2017)

This video is from the May 2017 Demand Driven Webinar Series.  In this video Carol Ptak And Chad Smith, authors of Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (Industrial Press, 2016) expose the critical flaw of conventional planning systems that directly leads to the bullwhip effect.  [Run Time (Min.): 57:11]

Dealing With Discontinuous Demand/Low Frequency Orders

Large infrequent orders are difficult to handle in any make to stock environment.  In this video Dr. Patrick Rigoni explores how DDI affiliate SmartChain is taking this challenge head on with DDMRP buffers. [Run Time (Min.): 23:41]  Download the presentation.

The Science Behind Proof that Demand Driven MRP is ALWAYS Best

There is plenty of case study evidence that the Demand Driven approach to supply chain management delivers significantly superior performance compared to the ubiquitous MRP/ERP/APS approaches - in all replenishment configurations be they MTS, MTO, ATO etc. But is this enough to enable us to say the Demand Driven approach is ALWAYS best? In this session Simon Eagle demonstrates why the Demand Driven approach is, indeed, unequivocally ALWAYS best and why such case studies ALWAYS show significant supply chain performance improvements. [Run Time (Min.): 39:39]

An Introduction to Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning

This professionally produced video introduces the need for and basics of Demand Driven MRP (DDMRP).

Precisely Wrong - A Technical Demonstration of the MRP Challenge

Carol Ptak from the Demand Driven Institute demonstrates through a simple and realistic exercise just how complicated even the simplest environment can get through conventional MRP rules. You can also download the workbook slides and work the problem along with Carol.  Download the presentation slides in PDF format here.

An Intro to Demand Driven Operational Principles – Microsoft QBE Lunch and Learn

In this one hour video Chad Smith from the Demand Driven Institute takes a group of over 200 Microsoft employees through the basic principles of the Demand Driven operating method including:
1. The problem facing formal planning and scheduling in the “New Normal”
2. The need for the promotion and protection of system flow and it connection to ROI
