Demand-Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP)

Demand-driven material requirements planning (DDMRP) is an operational supply planning and scheduling methodology that combines the relevant tactics of traditional MRP and distribution requirements planning with the pull-based approaches and signals of lean and the Theory of Constraints. A key feature of DDMRP is the strategic positioning and sizing of decoupling buffer stocks to manage customer lead times while reducing the impact of normal variability and improving overall flow. DDMRP-compliant software is certified by the Demand Driven Institute.
