Full Conference Schedule

Our supply chains are full of chaos, conflict, and frustration. Even prior to the pandemic, things were not running smoothly. The core of our supply chain issues come down to six failures and the solutions to address those failures are packaged in a framework called Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning.

This session will share the thought-ware required to prepare for the future. In this session you will learn to recognize the flaws in our current tools, processes and approach to supply chain management. In addition, you will understand the changes to our thinking that will ease the chaos and resolve the conflict of our decisions. Learn about the Demand Driven MRP principles and the processes involved in decision making for buyers, planners, and schedulers. Finally, be able to illustrate how management approaches need to be modified and augmented to adapt to the imprecise world in which we live.
