Training - Demand Driven Planner (DDP) - Axsens bte


The organizational environment is increasingly uncertain and complex. Traditional methods have reached their limits and information systems are not sufficient to achieve service rates with controlled stock levels. Many organizations notice this through their poor stock distribution (oscillation between too much or too little), and the multiplication of files parallel to ERP and APS.
