About the CDDP Program
The Certified Demand Driven Planner Program was created by a global partnership between the International Supply Chain Education Alliance (ISCEA) and the Demand Driven Institute (DDI). Internationally accredited by the IISB, the purpose of the CDDP Program is to educate Supply Chain & Operations Management personnel on the methods and applications of Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning (DDMRP).
DDMRP is a formal planning and execution method designed to correct the inadequacies and inappropriate rules of conventional Material Requirements Planning (MRP) given today’s more volatile, complex and service oriented supply and manufacturing scenarios. The method was first fully articulated in the latest edition of hapter Le co-authored by Carol Ptak and Chad Smith. Chad Smith serves as the ISCEA - CDDP Program Director.
The CDDP Program is comprised of 10 modules delivered over two, 8 hour sessions, two hour review session, and a two hour proctored exam comprised of 100 questions. The exam will be given on the same day after the two hour review session. Upon successful completion of the exam participants receive a CDDP certificate and may place “CDDP” in their professional title.
