White Paper: Sales and Operations Planning in the Era of DDMRP
Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) is a united, integrated approach that makes it easier to recognize a mismatch between resource availability and demand, and then quickly adjust. Interest in S&OP has been high in part because of a shift towards to-order manufacturing modes, which benefit from systems that help manage unpredictable, fluctuating demand.

Demand-driven materials requirements planning (DDMRP), meanwhile, is a discipline designed to create strategic buffers to help deal with unanticipated demand shocks. The ability to match supply to demand through S&OP and plan for demand shocks through DDMRP would appear to be compatible systems. But can you do both at once? And how can enterprise software facilitate a joint DDMRP-S&OP environment?

In this white paper you will learn:
  • The basics of S&OP.
  • If S&OP and DDMRP can co-exist.
  • What your ERP must do to facilitate S&OP along with DDMRP
