OMP Plus achieves DDMRP compliance from Demand Driven Institute (DDI)

October 22, 2018

DDMRP

The Demand Driven Institute (DDI) has evaluated OMP Plus and confirmed DDMRP compliance. Compliance criteria can be consulted via the website of the DDI.

Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP) is a multi-echelon planning method and one of the many planning methods supported in OMP Plus. DDMRP combines some aspects of Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP) with the pull and visibility emphasis found in Lean and the Theory of Constraints and the variability reduction of Six Sigma.

To support its customers with DDMRP initiatives and other planning methodologies, OM Partners continues to invest in DDMRP training and the hiring of DDMRP certified supply chain professionals. Additionally, OM Partners is currently sponsoring a research project related to DDMRP at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

"This compliance evaluation is a great recognition of the results achieved with several customers in different industries,” says Dirk Van Ginderachter, Associate Director at OM Partners. “We see DDMRP as a complementary approach to the many other advanced planning algorithms offered by OMP Plus".
