Citwell organized two free sessions of the DDBRIX Factory tool to concretely test Demand Driven MRP’s contribution. Presented in Lyon on March 22nd and in Nantes on March 29th, these two days of training addressed a public of directors and managers in the field of Supply Chain or operational excellence, in the sectors of industry and of distribution.
Twenty companies were present: Abriplus, Airbus, Air Liquide, Aldès, A.Raymond, bioMérieux, Boehringer Ingelheim, Daunat, Euralis, Groupe SEB, Groupe Atlantic, Kuehne+Nagel, L’Occitane, Martin Belaysoud Expansion, Merck Group, Nexans, Solvay and Wirquin.
Composed of 4 rounds, this game had 33 participants. They have been able to progressively accelerate material flow in a plastic brick assembly shop by implementing DDMRP buffers and increasing the relevance of information flow (with command prioritization levels).
The ultimate goal of the DDBrix serious game is to understand how the DDMRP balances production and overall reduce the stress of teams, to discover concretely what the stages of implementation are, and to experiment with the proposed new organization by this methodology on the planning and prioritization of production orders.
Following the case presentation of companies in Nantes, this tool gave rise to an exchange among the trainers and expert consultants in Supply Chain Management of Citwell.
