Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning
Material Planning and Execution Software that ensures you have enough inventory without having too much
Protected Flow Manufacturing (PFM) and Demand Driven MRP (DDMRP) are embedded features of LillyWorks ERP. Our ERP was designed from the get-go to include these features without requiring integration. LillyWorks is Manufacturing ERP reimagined!
Protected Flow Manufacturing (PFM)
Ensures that you’re always working on the right job/work order at the right time shop-wide and at every work center/department.
Adding Demand Driven MRP (DDMRP) to PFM
Ensures that you always have enough inventory – finished goods, subassemblies, and purchased items – but never too much.
What is DDMRP?
(Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning)
It’s Material Planning and Execution for the 21st Century!
buffer” for each part. The planning buffer is like a shock-absorber for each stock position; On one
hand, it stops you from ordering too much, and on the other, it triggers replenishment orders when
waiting any longer would put that position at risk of running out. This way, you always have enough
on hand, but never too much.
Shock-Absorbers for your Inventory
DDMRP eliminates the guesswork in planning for materials.
- Actual usage triggers replenishment recommendations, not forecasts. This eliminates the constant correction of pulling in or pushing out MRP-generated orders planners deal with on a weekly basis.
- Eliminates the timing guessing-game. MRP’s goal is to time supply / demand to end up with zero inventory. This often results in having to de-expedite orders that MRP told you to expedite previously. DDMRP’s goal is to have enough inventory on hand and on order all the time.
- Planning buffers are dynamic – they flex over time as your actual demand changes always ensuring that you have enough, but never too much, even when demand is far from consistent.
