The glass replacement industry is highly dependent on stock availability. However, it is expensive to hold too much stock when it is not needed – and equally bad for business not to have stock when demand is high. So it is essential for our business to accurately plan our stock levels.
This is why we have adopted Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP).
DDMRP is a methodology that does not require any new technology and is used by supply chain leaders in many industries around the world. Key benefits include reductions in inventory, shorter lead times and a significant increase in availability.
The Guardian Automotive dynamic DDMRP programme has now been implemented in Llodio. Not only will it help us to better plan our stock levels, it will also help us to meet your requirements more accurately and compress lead times, in short, offer you greater security of supply.
