Accredited Demand Driven Planner Training
Supply chain planners contend with complexity and volatility every day. Forecasts are evermore less reliable, supply chain complexity has increased, customer willingness to wait has decreased and inventory is more often than not is in a critical condition; lots excess and shortages with very few parts at an optimum level. Traditional planning systems simply do not support organizations to meet the needs of their customers while driving down inventory in today’s New Normal. Demand Driven Planner (DDP)™ training will provide your team with the necessary knowledge and skills to operate a Demand Driven Supply Chain in the 21st Century.
Developed by our industry partner,Driven Driven Institute, the Demand Driven Planner training provides the theory behind Demand Driven MRP (DDMRP) that is rapidly becoming the world standard for Demand Driven supply chain methodologies in planning, scheduling, and execution of the entire supply chain from retail and distribution to manufacturing and multi-tiered suppliers. DDMRP is the core of the Demand Driven Operating Model that provides companies with the operational planning and execution tools to revolutionize their supply chains, right-sizing inventory at strategic locations throughout the entire supply network enabling visibility, control, responsiveness, and agility.
DDP education is a fundamental part of your DDMRP implementation providing your team with the necessary knowledge and skills to operate a Demand Driven Supply Chain.
Two Day Training Program
The Demand Driven Planner (DDP)™ is designed for planning, purchasing and supply chain personnel responsible for implementing and maintaining a DDMRP implementation. Designed by the leading authorities on DDMRP at the Demand Driven Institute, the Demand Driven Planner is a 2-day program comprised of 13 modules of in-depth DDMRP education.
On conclusion of this training program, each participant will receive a certificate of completion from the Demand Driven Institute. The DDP Program is the official preparatory course for Demand Driven Planner Professional (DDPP)™ endorsement.
Achieving Professional Certification
The Demand Driven Planner Professional (DDPP)™ is a professional endorsement certification offered by the Demand Driven Institute, the global authority for Demand Driven education, training, certification and compliance. The DDPP™ is earned by an individual who can apply the Demand Driven concepts, analyze an environment and evaluate an environment using the Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) methodology.
Once an individual has completed the 2-day Demand Driven Planner (DDP)™ training workshop, the DDPP™ endorsement is awarded following the successful completion of a 3-hr examination.
