About DDS&OP Software Compliance
Demand Driven Sales & Operations Planning (DDS&OP) compliance is intended to ensure that a software and can perform the basic requirements of Demand Driven Sales & Operations Planning.
The DDI evaluation process is FREE OF CHARGE to software entities.
The three compliance categories were written in such a way that it ensures compliance to the method but allows open space for competitive differences, creativity and innovation.
Software that is deemed to be compliant will be allowed to use the DDI compliance logo for the categories in which it is compliant.
After two years the software must go through re-evaluation in order to continue to use compliance logos.
Look for the DDI Compliance Logos!
DDS&OP Software Compliance Criteria
Component 1: Master Settings Access
The software must provide access to all relevant master settings of the DDOM.
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.
