CDDP Program Overview

The Certified Demand Driven Planner Program was designed with the specific purpose to educate Supply Chain & Operations Management personnel on the methods and applications of Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP).

The CDDP exam fee is included in the price of the course.
What is DDMRP ?
When the traditional MRP is no longer enough, Demand-Driven Material Requirement Planning (DDMRP) is a way to reduce lead time, absorb incredible amounts of supply chain variability and volatility, and improve return on capital employed all at the same time and all without compromise.
