Is Orchestr8 DDI Compliant? How does Orchestr8 comply or align with popular demand-driven methodologies and frameworks?

Orchestr8 is not DDI compliant. In fact, we believe DDI compliance actually hinders Demand Driven Sales and Operations methodology and alignment criteria:

Component 1: Master Settings Access

O8 provides access to all relevant master settings of the DDOM. In fact, O8 A Demand Driven Operating Model (DDOM) is a supply order generation, operational scheduling and execution model utilizing actual demand in combination with strategic decoupling and control points and stock, time and capacity buffers in order to create a predictable and agile system that promotes and protects the flow of relevant information and materials within the operational relevant range (hourly, daily and weekly). A DDOM’s key parameters are set through the Demand Driven Sales & Operations Planning (DDS&OP) process to meet the stated business and market objectives while minimizing working capital and expedite-related expenses.

Component 2: DDOM Variance Analysis Capability

  • The software must be able to produce reports on past buffer performance for stock, time and capacity buffers including statistical run charts

Component 3: DDOM Simulation Capability

  • The software must be able to simulate DDOM performance with regard to capacity and working capital levels under different user defined scenarios.

NOTE: If the software provider is only DDMRP compliant then the DDS&OP compliance is based solely on the DDS&OP activities required to maintain and improve a DDMRP implementation.

DDS&OP Compliant Add-On Applications

The following software applications have successfully completed the DDI DDS&OP Software Compliance Process.  While they are not ERP systems most of these add-on applications have interfaces designed specifically for a particular ERP system or multiple ERP systems.  If your ERP system is not DDMRP compliant contact these providers to see if they might be the right fit for you.
