Distributors and manufacturers have a very hard job balancing supply and demand; despite their best efforts, they often make mistakes when analyzing their supply and demand to determine what they need to buy (or make), when, and how much. These seem like relatively simple questions to answer but complex bills of material, capacity constraints, and quality issues from vendors or from manufacturing, outsourced activities, demand forecasts, and other factors can wreak havoc on even the best laid plans.

Material Requirements Planning and Distribution Requirements Planning critical mistakes fall under the following categories:

  1. Supply mistakes
  2. Date mistakes
  3. Forecast mistakes
  4. Quantity mistakes
  5. Resource mistakes

Some DRM and MRP mistakes can’t be avoided but some can be avoided. This webinar will discuss critical mistakes made and best practices to help you avoid them starting today.
