DDMRP is a formal planning and execution method designed to correct the inadequacies and inappropriate rules of conventional Material Requirements Planning (MRP) given today’s more volatile, complex and service oriented supply and manufacturing scenarios.  The method was first fully articulated in the latest edition of Orlicky’s Material Requirements Planning (McGraw-Hill, 2011) co-authored by Carol Ptak and Chad Smith.  Chad Smith serves as the CDDP Program Director.

DDP course preparation

The official text of the DDP is Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning V2 (Ptak and Smith, Industrial Press 2018) 

Program attendees should consider reviewing Precisely Wrong – Why Conventional Planning Fails and How to Fix It (Ptak and Smith, Industrial Press, 2017)​

Program attendees should read the following white papers:

The Power of Decoupling - Unlocking the Secret to Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP)Lean Finds a Friend in DDMRP​

Program attendees should review the Demand Driven Institute Dictionary.​

Participants preparing for the program should thoroughly review the DDMRP related items page on this site.
