President's Message

It is hard to believe that we are approaching summer already! In that spirit, we are holding our annual Top Management Night on June 12th - which is free for all attendees - and we will announce our annual chapter awards, the winner of the Janet Hillier Scholarship, as well as install our new Board. We hope you can join!

We also are looking for volunteers to serve on our various committees - Programs, Education, Transportation & Logistics, Finance, Young Professionals, and Membership. This is a great way to get involved with the chapter to play a part in the many different pieces that help the chapter run well. Please email me if you are interested!

Demand Driven Planner
PAN APICS is proud to partner with ASCM and the Demand Driven Institute to host the Demand Driven Planner workshop. The Demand Driven Planner (DDP) program is designed for planning, purchasing and supply chain personnel interested in and responsible for implementing and maintaining a DDMRP implementation. Designed by the leading subject matter authorities at the Demand Driven Institute, the Demand Driven Planner program is comprised of 13 modules of in-depth DDMRP education. The DDP Program is THE official preparatory course for DDI’s Demand Driven Planner Professional (DDPP) Certification test.

What is DDMRP? Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning is a multi-echelon planning and execution method to protect and promote the flow of relevant information and materials through the establishment and management of strategically placed decoupling point stock buffers. DDMRP is the supply order generation and management engine of a Demand Driven Operating Model (DDOM). DDMRP can best be summarized as Position, Protect, Pull.
