Demand Flow Applications for Supply Chain and Manufacturing

You Will Learn
  • What demand flow is and why to incorporate it
  • What the components of the process are
  • How to assess quality and what quality standards are important
  • How to enhance accuracy and what factors influence forecasts
  • What synchronized flow is
  • How customer's demand influences production
Course Outline
  1. Demand flow: What is it? How can we apply it? What are the benefits of incorporating it?
  2. The components of the process: High quality, accurate forecasts, synchronized flows, and velocity must equal Takt
  3. Quality of the product on both sides of the equation: Assessment of how the quality of our products compare and what quality standards are important
  4. Accurate forecasts is the key to all success: What is considered accurate, benefits of accuracy, tools to enhance accuracy, and factors influencing forecasts
  5. Synchronized flow and supply management coordination: Demand flow mapping, GAP analysis, synchronized ratios, demand flow risk assessment, developing a synchronized flow, costs, and payback for investments
  6. The rhythm of the customer's demand: Why the push method never worked, the value of the supply chain of the pull mechanism, developing operational mapping, establishing a Takt time schedule, materials kanban sizing, and developing an implementation agenda
Who Should Attend

Purchasing, inventory, supply, operations and manufacturing managers who want to enhance quality and achieve more accurate forecasts with synchronized flows and Takt.
