About The Author

Simon Eagle

Is a senior supply chain planning and strategy consultant with over 20 years of international industry experience and significant expertise in S&OP and demand-driven supply chain management. He works with manufacturing and distribution companies that wish to make a transformational improvement in their E2E operations and supply chain performance and does so through helping them to adopt 'demand-driven' planning and execution.

Many manufacturing and distribution companies are moving from the traditional ‘forecast push MRP’ to demand-driven supply chain management (SCM). Demand-driven SCM is an ‘end-to-end’ supply chain planning and replenishment process that enables companies to achieve their planned service levels from up to half the average level of inventory and requiring significantly less throughput capacity – irrespective of the level of demand volatility or lead-time length.

Demand-Driven Supply Chain Management is the go-to source for industry supply chain/operations executives and students. It describes the ‘what, how and why’ of the demand-driven SCM process. The key themes in the book are: what is demand-driven? why is demand-driven so effective? how to operate a demand-driven supply chain? and how to adopt the demand-driven process in your company? Readers can quickly grasp the essential concepts from one of numerous self-contained sections that present the book’s key concepts from different perspectives. Online resources available include full-colour figures.

2 reviews for Demand-Driven Supply Chain Management

  1. :

    This work will help cement the demand-driven methodology in the mainstream by dramatically strengthening the case for change with clear logic and common sense. Simon has been a huge advocate for the demand-driven movement and this book is a very welcome contribution to the body of knowledge.

  2. :

    The circumstances and environments for which the current and universally used forecast push MPS/MRP model was designed are totally different to those of today’s highly uncertain world. In this book, Simon Eagle makes a very strong case for the urgent need of migrating to demand-driven models in supply chain management. You will find a comprehensive description of the knowledge frontier in this fundamental area including the basic equations that should drive it, seldom known by people working in the field. Applying these concepts with rigor will give any company a substantial competitive advantage and a clear path for sustainable growth. A must-read for any industry professional in any area, at any level in any industry.
