The Major Innovations of Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning - How to bring ORDER out of CHAOS!

What if you had an inventory warning system to alert you when inventory got too low or too high?

What if we’ve been working on improving the visibility of the wrong thing?

What if our actions did the opposite of what we intended?

If we can calm the chaos just a bit, we can take a moment to understand why we have inventory shortages, why better forecasts aren’t the answer and why the choices we make don’t seem to make the problem go away.

Constant rescheduling?  Parts shortages?  Overall too much inventory?  Less than fantastic on-time delivery?

What can be wrong?  It’s not your people.  It’s that the tools we have to work with aren’t designed for the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world in which we live.

Find out why you’ve struggled to achieve the results that Traditional MRP is supposed to yield.  We’ll open the door to the solution, you’re closer than you think.  Join us and learn how to regain your sanity and STOP MANAGING CHAOS.

Average results:  30% reduction in inventory, while at the same time nearly 100% on time delivery.  And happier employees.

This is absolutely Too Good To Ignore.
