The Demand Driven Planner program 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 program is comprised of 13 modules of in-depth DDMRP education. The DDP Program is THE official preparatory course for the Demand Driven Planner Professional (DDPP)™ certification exam.

Note: Each participant of the DDP will receive a certificate of completion from the Demand Driven Institute

Sensing changing customer demand, then adapting planning and production while pulling from suppliers – all in real time!

DDMRP is a formal planning and execution method designed to correct the inadequacies and inappropriate rules of conventional Material Requirements Planning (MRP) given today’s more volatile, complex and service oriented supply and manufacturing scenarios.  The method was first fully articulated in the latest edition of Orlicky’s Material Requirements Planning (McGraw-Hill, 2011) co-authored by Carol Ptak and Chad Smith.   Current Text for the Class(optional) is  https://www.amazon.com/Demand-Material-Requirements-Planning-Version/dp/0831136510
