March PDM

Join us on March 8th at Mancy’s Italian for our March PDM!

We’ve got Carol Ptak from the Demand Driven Institute giving a talk on “Innovation, Productivity and Performance, the ‘Adapt or Die’ approach to successfully managing the supply chain”.

Today’s detailed planning and scheduling systems are rooted in assumptions and practices from 40 years ago. “Best practices” are no longer best – they are simply antiquated and in many cases inappropriate. Optimising these inappropriate rules through today’s more powerful ERP products is fraught with risk. Sustaining competitiveness in the face of rising complexity and volatility in supply chains requires a fundamentally different approach – a company has a choice – adapt or die. This presentation will describe the simple steps of the required shift from convention to the emerging principles of Demand Driven operational systems.
