Leading procurement, supply chain and logistics consultancy, SCALA, has developed a new solution that allows businesses to create production and inventory management plans.

The solution, Demand Driven, is designed to reflect daily demand changes, known product sales variability and accurate lead times.

Having joined forces with industry-leading Orchestr8 cloud-based solution, SCALA provides a simple, operational approach that measures the production and the pull of actual demand.

It offers an operationally proven alternative to the traditional Material Requirements Planning (MRP) methodology which relies on unachievable precise sales forecasts.

“Demand Driven is a new phenomena that is being championed as radical and transformational by supply chain gurus globally,” said Keith Newton, executive director at SCALA.

“Many companies are now recognising the edge that a demand driven approach can give in terms of improved service, lower inventory and manufacturing stability” he continued.

Demand Driven has proved popular with major UK soft drink brands with AG Barr, owners of the renowned IRN-BRU beverage, having utilised SCALA’s solution as it realises the importance of switching to a radically different process that ensures improved service level.
