CDDP (Certified Demand Driven Professional) training

Demand Driven MRP is the latest ‘revolution’ in supply chain materials planning and execution since traditional MRP was introduced to the manufacturing world way back in 1975 and since then it hasn’t changed. But the world we trade in has, significantly.

Become a leader, and a hero in your business and your supply chains. Take heed of the quote from one company that has implemented this methodology – “Be warned, make sure your competitors don’t get hold of this before you do – you could get left in their dust!”

DDMRP is a way to reduce lead time, absorb incredible amounts of supply chain variability and volatility, and improve return on capital employed all at the same time and all without compromise.
