In today’s world-leading supply chain design must include Supply Chain Resilience. Resilience from a supply chain management point of view, is the ability of a supply chain to both resist and contain disruptions. When disruptions are so large, as was the case of the COVID-19 pandemic, the supply chain must be able to recover operational capabilities.
Contingencies in-built into supply chains around the world simply did not account for a global pandemic. Most supply chains were overwhelmed both with the inability to obtain products and materials as well as from the demand expectations of customers.
Build a Demand Driven Supply Chain
Some companies go down the route of stocking huge amounts of inventory only to find they stocked the wrong inventory. Some will create excess capacity with the manufacturing plant so they can ramp up quickly as demand ramps up but machines sit idle. The design of the supply chain needs to be Demand Driven and based on the business model and rules, to enable the reduction/elimination of excess inventory costs, and the positioning of optimum resource capacity. A Demand Driven supply chain model will give you just that where we integrate our Demand Driven solutions of Demand Driven Flow Technology (DDFT) with Demand Driven MRP (DDMRP).

In the factory, Demand Driven Flow Technology focuses on the design and operation of the manufacturing flow. It is a comprehensive mathematical-based methodology that balances resource capability to actual, or planned demand, enabling a company to improve response capability to customer orders, reducing lead time, working capital, and Cost of Goods while improving productivity and overall customer satisfaction. DDFT is the framework that enables manufacturing to be adaptive to daily changes in the required mix and actual demand.
Demand Driven supply chains focus on the optimization of strategically positioned inventory that absorbs demand volatility and supply variation we see in the bullwhip creating stability in supply downstream and demand creation upstream. Dynamic and statistically designed inventory levels based on current market conditions and will reduce overall inventory across the entire supply chain while improving customer service levels and response capability. By being able to quickly adapt to changes in customer preferences or market conditions, Demand Driven companies can improve their customer satisfaction and increase their market share.
