Demand Driven Supply Chain: A Structured and Practical by Paulo Mendes

By Paulo Mendes

This e-book goals to spot and describe the sensible key parts of call for pushed provide chains, and in accordance with those parts, develops a dependent and built-in overview framework that businesses can use to evaluate their present and wanted destiny offer chain states in mild of the Demand pushed provide Chain (DDSC) thoughts. one other contribution of the e-book is the established framework built to layout a offer chain procedure, with the intention to ponder the DDSC evaluation effects as one of many key inputs, and should aid the implementation of the possibilities pointed out throughout the assessment.

The framework awarded during this publication used to be utilized in numerous provide chain operations of an international CPG corporation to validate the method and formalize an motion plan to permit those operations flow in the direction of a DDSC. effects convey transparent possibilities to enhance offer chain operation and develop into extra call for driven.

Sample text

Ayers and Malmberg (2002) touch very briefly DDSC concepts, providing a four stage maturity model to show how enablers of supply chain improvement support the introduction of information technology to the supply chain, and one of these elements is the demand-driven as illustrated in Fig. 8 below. However, they did not provide a detail maturity model and a robust methodology to assess a supply chain, in order to determine its current state in terms of the demand driven concepts. 2 below provides a summary of the current literature review on assessing DDSC: 22 2 Literature Review on Demand Driven Supply Chain (DDSC) Fig.

Shortening the lead-time is fundamental to changing batch model economics. Basing decisions on demand comes after adopting the economics of the flow model. Along the path, there is feedback to earlier steps. For each phase in Fig. 6 above there are three to four methodologies to be applied towards a DDSC operation. Another key concept related to Demand-Driven Supply Chains is the concept of Agile. Christopher (2000) presents the concept of agility as a business wide capability that embraces organizational structures, information systems, logistics processes, being flexibility one of the key characteristics.

The most important are: – Possible recycles in the diagnostic stage – Empirical support of critical findings – Quantification of value together with scenario analysis • Transparent – All tools and steps used in the methodology should be clearly described in all parts. No “secret engine” is behind the methodology. The proposed new audit methodology by Salama et al. (2009) were tested through three European research initiatives, and also showed an example of a master best practice relationship map for the demand management process.
