TheONE DDMRP software provides Demand Driven operational planning and execution tools delivering high levels of customer service that fit today’s business environment where forecast accuracy is poor and getting worse, complexity within the supply chain is continually increasing and inventory reduction is a major priority.

TheONE DDMRP enables effective planning, scheduling, and execution of the entire supply chain from retail and distribution to manufacturing and multi-tiered suppliers.

TheONE DDMRP will transform supply chain networks, facilitating supply chain optimization and the right-sizing of inventory at strategic locations throughout the entire supply chain network while dampening inherent supply chain volatilities at the same time.

TheONE DDMRP software establishes visibility, control, responsiveness, and agility within your supply chain.

Tia: The Intelligent Assistant

The Intelligent Assistant (Tia) is the engine within our fully compliant DDMRP software application enables planners and buyers to become proactive towards further optimization of the supply network rather than being entrenched in the daily battle to have sufficient availability of inventory.

Based on key parameters, Tia analyses all inventory locations for supply and demand requirements providing daily Planning and Execution alerts thereby removing the daily fire-fighting and second-guessing that is a daily occurrence with traditional MRP.

  • Tia: Daily Sensing and Shaping

    On a daily basis, TheONE monitors variability in the supply chain, demand patterns and supply performance to ensure the most up to date part attributes associated to Buffer Profiles are established and assigned. Based on these attributes TheONE will dynamically align the strategic inventory positioning to the current market conditions and subsequently compare the current inventory, actual demand and supply orders.  Supply order generation automatically takes place with the planner or buyer only having to confirm recommendations, without endless hours spent in the construction of excel “workarounds” to disprove what traditional MRP systems are recommending.

  • Tia: Supply Chain Visibility

    Tia monitors the availability of on-hand inventory alerting planners and buyers when the strategic inventory position is at risk. Furthermore, Tia will determine the priority for all open supply orders within the factory and supply network significantly improving supply chain visibility. With a shift in how Tia looks at priority management, due date is no longer the key measure of priority, inventory availability and the level of inventory penetration at the strategic location is now key.  Better to have a supplier who doesn’t stock you out than one who delivers on time.

  • Tia: Reducing Variability in the Supply Chain; aka the Bullwhip Effect

    Tia drives TheONE DDMRP for you to eliminate supply variability and demand distortion through the entire supply network, enabling constant availability of inventory to meet sales demand requirements whilst at the same time establishing stability in signal generation across the supply network. Tia establishes FIRM supply order generation requirements based on open supply, current inventory, actual consumption and known demand within the planning horizon. As Tia’s algorithm is based on Demand Driven methodologies, supply orders will no longer be issued for materials that are not actually required and will not consume capacity ahead of orders that are required. Suppliers will get consistent demand signals without the daily pull-ins, push-outs, and cancelations driving stability through the entire supply chain network.

TheONE DDMRP Eliminates Excess Inventory and Stock-outs

Before DDMRP


Bi-Modal Inventory Distribution
DDMRP Inventory Distribution

As supply chain network complexity has increased so too have volatility levels in demand and supply through these networks. Customer tolerance is decreasing and the number of parts with long lead times are increasing.

Typically, companies find they suffer from stock-outs that then affect customer service levels as well as adding time taken to respond to orders. At the same time, most companies find they allow carry excess levels of inventory affecting the financial performance. We call this Bi-Modal Inventory Distribution, too much of the wrong inventory and not enough of the right inventory.

Legacy inventory planning techniques and tools that MRP provides simply don’t work in the 21st Century. MRP is driving poor inventory and business performance.

Strategic positions through supply chain networks are protected by TheONE DDMRP software dynamically controlling inventory levels and supply order generation, dampening demand distortions and supply disruptions providing a consistent availability of inventory, maintaining stable signals to suppliers.

Demand Driven methodologies at the core of TheONE DDMRP provides a means for supply chain optimization ensuring inventory is in the right place at the right quantity at the right time. Furthermore, TheONE DDMRP software will reduce inventory levels across the supply network without any erosion to service levels.  In fact, DDMRP actually increases customer service levels.

Through strategic inventory realignment across the entire supply chain, TheONE DDMRP software puts an end to the typical bi-modal inventory distribution suffered by most companies.


Frequently Asked Questions about TheONE DDMRP Software.

How long does it take to train our planners and buyers?

Due to the extremely user-friendly nature of our DDMRP application and the fact that TheONE works for you, training on how to use the software can be completed in one day.

How long does it take to implement DDMRP?

This is dependent on the company, the amount of data etc. However, once all data has been prepared a typically standard implementation to deploy the software and integrate will take around two weeks. However, a program to fully introduce DDMRP to an organization will take longer.  Typical benefits are generally realized within one to two lead time cycles of the strategic parts.

Is there a limit to the number of users within our company that can use TheONE?

There are no restrictions on the number of users within your organization that can access our Fully Compliant DDMRP software application within TheONE.

Hosting Options

We offer both Cloud-based and On-Premises options.  We partner with leading Cloud services provider, Microsoft Azure.  Here are a few key points regarding our cloud-based option.

  • Server Uptime

    Microsoft Azure has a 99.99% Microsoft-Backed SLA uptime; e.g. Microsoft Azure scales to enable AccuWeather to respond to 10 billion requests for crucial weather data daily.

  • Data Encryption

    Secure site using https that encrypts any data during transmission between server and browser. Also, we have the ability to encrypt the data at rest (if anyone physically stole the database files, they couldn’t be used). For data in transit, Azure uses industry-standard transport protocols between user devices and Microsoft data centers, and within data centers themselves.

  • Threats

    Microsoft employs intrusion detection, denial-of-service (DDoS) attack prevention, regular penetration testing, and data analytics and machine learning tools to help mitigate threats to the Azure platform. Azure meets a broad set of international and industry-specific compliance standards, such as ISO 27001, HIPAA, Fed RAMP, SOC 1 and SOC 2, as well as country-specific standards like Australia IRAP, UK G-Cloud, and Singapore MTCS.

The Demand Driven Institute’s endorsement of TheONE DDMRP Software was important to us as it not only recognizes our software in the same way early MRP developers received Joe Orlicky’s endorsement but also indirectly acknowledges our work in the last 10 years establishing demand driven supply chains around the world.  TheONE combats the most common problem our clients were continually facing…MRP failed to provide appropriate and reliable information.  TheONE DDMRP Software will provide companies with the tactical planning and execution tools they require to operate a demand driven supply chain in the 21st Century.
