Most people have played the Beer Game at some point of their careers. With the introduction of the DDMRP (Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning) methodology, an interesting question is raised: If we apply the DDMRP principles to the traditional Beer Game, what would the results be? In this workshop, Liezl Smith will run a simulation both with physical product and on Excel to illustrate the benefits of using the DDMRP planning methodology. For anyone with high back orders and/or too much stock, this will introduce a potential solution. All delegates will be able to take the model on Excel home. Delegates should bring their laptops with them.
