Michelin selects Demand Driven Technologies to improve supply chain planning
Demand Driven Technologies (DD Tech), has announced the signing of an enterprise software agreement with Michelin to deploy their Replenishment+ supply chain technology to up to 70 manufacturing plants worldwide.
The announcement was made at DD Tech’s European User Conference in Nice, France on June 7th.
“We’re delighted that Michelin selected Replenishment+ as the solution for their Demand Driven MRP roll-out across a global network of manufacturing facilities,” said Erik Bush, CEO of Demand Driven Technologies.
DD Tech said its Replenishment+ dramatically improves materials planning by shifting from forecast driven to sales order driven planning to improve service levels and optimise inventory.
The multi-echelon solution automatically identifies strategic inventory positions in the supply chain, aligning inventory to true market demand and compressing lead times.
The Group Project Manager for the Michelin initiative commented, “We’ve had excellent support from Demand Driven Technologies and its partners through our pilot phase and look forward to their ongoing contribution to this strategic initiative.”
