Implement demand driven smart metrics to drive and sustain dramatic gains in flow and improve ROI performance What if the objective of minimizing unit product cost that is hard coded into all reporting and measurement systems is simply "bad math" that drives decisions and actions that destroy ROI? In today's volatile, globally competitive environment, new decision-making tools are required to monitor, measure, and improve total organizational performance. Adherence to "old" operational rules, tools, and behaviors is killing competitiveness in most enterprises. A fundamental shift is required. Cowritten by internationally recognized experts in the field, Demand Driven Performance explains why current measurement forms must be replaced. The authors present a demand driven blueprint and the smart metrics to maximize flow and ROI. "The methods described in this book worked in one of the most complex manufacturing operations that you can imagine with very effective results." -- From the Foreword by Dan Eckermann, former President and CEO, LeTourneau Technologies, Inc. THIS PRACTICAL, TIMELY GUIDE OFFERS: The case against conventional unitcost-focused metrics, and proof of their negative effects The new rules needed to succeed in the complex and volatile global demand and supply landscape Historical perspectives on flow, cost, and rise and demise of management accounting The evolution of flow and ROI as strategy A case study--the Boeing Dreamliner Instructions on how to design and implement a demand driven information system The smart metrics required to sustain and drive improvements in demand driven operating models

Book 2.0 is the second collection of public methodology white papers from the ISA-95/MESA Best Practices Working Group. The methodology white papers focus on applying the ISA-95 standards to accelerate the adoption of Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) systems and the Manufacturing 2.0 Architecture (Mfg 2.0) approach. There is a focus on how to build a Manufacturing Transformation Strategy where manufacturers discover that using MOM systems combined with continuous improvement methods dramatically accelerate transformation and time-to-benefit. The business benefits from optimizing operations are realized by structuring plant workflows in ISA-95 models as a common definition foundation for Mfg 2.0 architecture. This enforces effective data structure, definition, integrity and governance across manufacturing applications. Book 2.0 explains how to implement ISA-95 workflow applications in Mfg 2.0 to execute operations tasks through the MOM and physical process levels while coordinating them to streamline plant operations and align those operations with ever-changing supply chain processes.

In the 1950s, a method called Material Requirements Planning (or "MRP") changed the world of manufacturing forever. But times have changed--customer tolerance times are shorter, product variety and complexity has increased, and supply chains have spread around the world. MRP is dramatically failing in this "New Normal." Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP), Version 2 presents a practical, proven, and emerging method for supply chain planning and execution that effectively brings the 1950s concept into the modern era. The foundation of DDMRP is based upon the connection between the creation, protection, and acceleration of the flow of relevant materials and information to drive returns on asset performance in the New Normal. Using an innovative multi-echelon "Position, Protect and Pull" approach, DDMRP helps plan and manage inventories and materials in today's more complex supply scenarios, with attention being paid to ownership, the market, engineering, sales, and the supply base. It enables a company to decouple forecast error from supply order generation and build in line to actual market requirements, and promotes better and quicker decisions and actions at the planning and execution level. DDMRP is already in use by MAJOR Global 1000 companies. This book is THE definitive work on DDMRP, and will be required as courseware for all those taking the Certified Demand Driven Planner (CDDP) Program. New Features in Version 2 Completely new Chapter 13, introducing the Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise (DDAE) Model New Appendix E: The Innovations of DDMRP New and revised graphics scattered throughout the book

How to Conquer the Effective Frontier and Drive Improved Value in Global Operations Growth has slowed. Volatility has increased and the world is more global. Brands are defined by innovation and services. Supply chain excellence matters more than ever. It makes a difference in corporate performance. One cannot snap their fingers and deliver supply chain success. It happens over the course of many years. It is measured in inches not miles. In this book, the author evaluates the progress of over a hundred companies over the period of 2006-2013. Success drives value. The effective supply chain makes a difference in winning a war, saving a patient, and driving commerce; but it also makes a difference in a community having clean air, potable water, and a standard of living. Mistakes are hard to overcome. Supply Chain Metrics that Matter tells this story. The book links corporate financials to supply chain maturity. In the book, the author analyzes which metrics matter. The author Lora M. Cecere is a supply chain researcher as well as an authority in supply chain technology. She helps companies gain first mover advantage. In the book, Cecere provides concrete, actionable steps to align and balance the supply chain to drive value. The book explores the crossover between supply chain efficiency and financial growth with topics such as: Outlining the metrics that matter, the metrics that don't Progress in industry sub-segment in improving inventory, cash, productivity and margin The management techniques that improve performance Sharing insights on how metrics change as the supply chain matures The roadmap to improve performance. Today, supply chains are global and dynamic. They are rapidly evolving. Companies that constantly seek out new solutions and opportunities for improvement drive differentiation. In a market where growth is stalled and many companies are stuck in driving supply chain performance, this book provides a clear, concise framework for a more modern, effective supply chain.

This book examines the management of Procuring Complex Performance (PCP) in large-scale programmes that includes the downstream support phase in sectors such as construction, healthcare, transport, aerospace, marine and defence. It brings together a series of edited chapters to explain why the traditional combination of linear project management and highly detailed contracts are now unsuited to the dynamics of emerging customer requirements based on performance and outcome. Working with leading business professors across the UK and Europe, Caldwell and Howard present the case for why large-scale programmes of world class organizations often represent a shifting frontier between the boundaries of public-private provision and silos of operations expertise. Adopting a procurement perspective, the authors explain how complex performance means not just coping with the dynamics of buyer-supplier relationships, but incorporates the shift from production orientation towards availability of bundled services such as maintenance and upgrade delivered over extended, often multi-decade timeframes. The strength of ‘PCP’ is its empirical case-based support for new business models based on through-life management, availability contracting and service support which challenge simplistic notions of dyadic, hierarchical relationships and transfer of risk to the supply base. This unique publication is essential reading for scholars and practitioners seeking to understand the context of innovation and supply as a coordinated and integrated approach to managing and procuring complex performance.

Businesses are dying faster than ever as they fail to drive adaptation to an increasingly more complex and volatile set of circumstances. Management is starving for relevant information, much of which is obscured and distorted by antiquated models, methods, rules and tools held over from decades past. What will it take to change this? This book reveals a new management framework that enables a flow-based system of management to drive return on investment performance and adaptation for sustainability and improvement in the longer range. The new framework is called the Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise (DDAE) Model. The DDAE model enables enterprises to adapt to complex and volatile environments. The model utilizes a constant system of innovation and feedback between three primary components: 1) A Demand Driven Operating Model; 2) Demand Driven S&OP; and 3) Adaptive S&OP. A Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise focuses on the protection and promotion of the flow of relevant information and materials across the strategic (annual, quarterly, and monthly), tactical, and operational (hourly, daily, and weekly) relevant ranges in order to drive sustained return on equity performance. This work represents the next phase of the Demand Driven journey by Carol Ptak and Chad Smith, two of the top supply chain management professionals and leaders of the Demand Driven movement. As DDMRP and Precisely Wrong continue to sell and become even more popular, Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise will be adopted by the growing number of organizations who have been successful using these same methodologies.
