Demand-Driven Supply Chain Management : Transformational Performance Improvement (Simon Eagle, KoganPage, 2017). Many manufacturing and distribution companies are moving from the traditional 'forecast push MRP' to demand-driven supply chain management (SCM). Demand-driven SCM is an 'end-to-end' supply chain planning and replenishment process that enables companies to achieve their planned service levels from up to half the average level of inventory and requiring significantly less throughput capacity - irrespective of the level of demand volatility or lead-time length.

Demand-Driven Supply Chain Management is the go-to source for industry supply chain/operations executives and students. It describes, in a readable but rigorous manner, the 'what, how and why' of the demand-driven SCM process. The key themes in the book are: what is demand-driven? why is demand-driven so effective? how to operate a demand-driven supply chain? and how to adopt the demand-driven process in your company? The book has been written in such a way that it doesn't require reading from cover to cover. Readers can quickly grasp the essential concepts from one of numerous self-contained sections that present the book's key concepts from different perspectives.

Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (Ptak and Smith, Industrial Press, 2016)
In the 1950s, a planning method was conceived called Material Requirements Planning (or MRP). MRP changed the world of manufacturing forever. But times have changed customer tolerance times are much shorter, product variety and complexity has increased, and supply chains have spread around the world. MRP is dramatically failing in this New Normal.   Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) is a practical, proven, and emerging method for supply chain planning and execution that effectively brings the 1950s concept into the modern era. The foundation of DDMRP is based upon the connection between the creation, protection, and acceleration of the flow of relevant materials and information to drive returns on asset performance.


Using an innovative multi-echelon Position, Protect, and Pull methodology, DDMRP helps plan and manage inventories and materials in today s more complex supply scenarios, with attention being paid to ownership, the market, engineering, sales, and the supply base. This method enables a company to decouple forecast error from supply order generation and build in line to actual market requirements, and promotes better and quicker decisions and actions at the planning and execution level. DDMRP is already in use by MAJOR Global 1000 companies. Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning is THE definitive work on DDMRP, and will be required as courseware for all those taking the Demand Driven Planner (DDP) Program.

Demand Driven Performance Using Smart Metrics (Smith and Smith, McGraw-Hill, 2013)

What if the objective of minimizing unit product cost that is hard coded into all reporting and measurement systems is simply "bad math" that drives decisions and actions that destroy ROI?


In today's volatile, globally competitive environment, new decision-making tools are required to monitor, measure, and improve total organizational performance. Adherence to "old" operational rules, tools, and behaviors is killing competitiveness in most enterprises. A fundamental shift is required. Cowritten by internationally recognized experts in the field, Demand Driven Performance explains why current measurement forms must be replaced. The authors present a demand driven blueprint and the smart metrics to maximize flow and ROI.  This book is the official text book of the Demand Driven Leader (DDL) Program.
