Vikas Chandra Team Wins NITIE Prize.jpgI'd like to offer my sincere congratulations to Vikas Chandra and his fellow students at NITIE (National Institute of Industrial Engineering) (Mumbai) for winning the ITC Interrobang Season 5 Case Challenge for 2015-16.

 

Some weeks ago, I was contacted by Vikas Chandra via LinkedIn. He posed some questions to me about demand driven MRP (DDMRP). He and a team of students at NITIE were involved in a competition sponsored by ITC (Indian Tobacco Company). Vikas had seen some of my articles on DDMRP, and thought I might be able to give him and his team some guidance.

 

So, via email, I worked with Vikas to help him understand DDMRP principles. The team worked diligently to develop a spreadsheet model to simulate DDMRP versus traditional MRP. The results were outstanding, in my view, and apparently to the competition's judges, as well.

 

Today I received notice that Vikas and his team had won first place in the competition while recommending that ITC pursue a supply chain strategy based on DDMRP principles and practices.

 

Congratulations, Vikas! The value of DDMRP is proven once again!
