VANCOUVER, BC–(Marketwired – May 12, 2016) – SYSPRO, a provider of award-winning, best-of-breed Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solution for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, today announced that it will be conducting a complimentary, live webinar for Canadian for procurement leaders and supply chain professionals, “Fuel Your Supply Chain and Procurement Strategy with Demand Driven MRP” on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at 10:00 A.M. PT / 1:00 P.M. ET.

The exclusive webinar will feature leading industry experts Roberta McPhail, APICS Master Instructor, CPIM, CIRM, CSCP, CDDP, PMP, and Steve Bassaw, Product Evangelist for SYSPRO Canada, who will share their deep industry insights into why procurement teams need to understand this new methodology for manufacturers, Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning-and how they can adopt this innovative business concept to help improve current procurement processes. The session will be hosted by PurchasingB2B Magazine, Canada’s magazine for procurement and supply chain professionals.

In today’s competitive market landscape, even slight fluctuations in demand can cause ripple effects through the entire value chain, that consequently lead to erratic behaviors and signals from MRP systems. In turn, this leaves procurement leaders to be reactive instead of proactive to potential hazards in the value chain and have insufficient time to focus on their long-term strategic goals in place of daily unforeseen problems.

Enter the next evolution of MRP and Lean Manufacturing-Demand Driven Materials Requirements Planning (DDMRP). DDMRP brings order to the chaos of production planning environments. It involves a demand-driven approach to supply rather than the traditional model of pushing inventory, using MRP solutions. By strategically positioning the right stock, in the right places, along the supply chain based on actual demand, DDMRP helps procurement teams execute the tactical side of their roles-in a more efficient way-to truly meet demand.

Register today for this informative session, designed specifically for Canadian procurement leaders and supply chain professionals, and discover how business leaders can benefit from Demand Driven MRP, including:

  • How DDMRP can deliver a competitive advantage, improve order fulfillment processes and customer service levels
  • Why DDMRP is the answer to today’s increasingly volatile, complex and service-oriented supply chain management process
  • How to apply a DDMRP methodology to help improve business processes-and the bottom line

“Most procurement teams are at the mercy of their MRP system. As the system outputs different purchase order (P.O) suggestions based on even slight fluctuations in forecasts, customer orders, and inventory adjustments; procurement departments then face the challenge of distinguishing between relevant and irrelevant information. This negatively impacts the purchasing department’s ability to bring in the right inventory-at the right time,” according to Steve Bassaw, Product Evangelist for SYSPRO Canada. “Demand Driven MRP helps mitigate this issue and helps improve the overall production planning environment for procurement leaders and their organizations.”
