    demand flow scheduling system

    A demand flow scheduling system is a software product designed to optimize demand-based manufacturing practices. (Continued)

  • Demand Planning

    Demand planning is the process of forecasting the demand for a product or service so it can be produced and delivered more efficiently and to the satisfaction of customers.

  • Demand signal repository (DSR)

    Demand signal repository (DSR) is a database that aggregates sales data at the point of sale (POS). DSR systems capture, clean and harmonize large data sets so the data can be queried.

  • demand-driven manufacturing (DDM)

    Demand-driven manufacturing (DDM) is an approach to manufacturing where production is based on actual orders rather than forecasts.

  • digital core

    Digital core is the technology platforms and applications that allow organizations to transform into digital businesses and meet the new needs of the digital economy.

  • digital manufacturing

    Digital manufacturing is a technology-based approach to production that links different data silos and processes in the manufacturing lifecycle so that stakeholders can make better business decisions both comprehensively and at each step.

  • digital modeling and fabrication

    Digital modeling and fabrication is a design and production process that marries 3-D modeling or computing-aided design (CAD) software with additive and subtractive manufacturing.

  • digital supply chain

    A digital supply chain is a supply chain whose foundation is built on Web-enabled capabilities to fully capitalize on connectivity, system integration and the information-producing capabilities of "smart" connected products.

  • digital thread

    A digital thread is a strategy for connecting manufacturing systems and digitally linking a manufacturing environment from end to end.

  • digital twin

    A digital twin is a virtual representation of a product that can be used in product design, simulation, monitoring, optimization and servicing. It requires three elements: the physical product in real space, its digital twin in virtual space and the information that links the two.

  • discrete manufacturing

    Discrete manufacturing is an industry term for the manufacturing of finished products that are distinct items capable of being easily counted, touched or seen.

  • distribution requirements planning (DRP)

    Distribution requirements planning (DRP) is a time-based systematic process to make the delivery of goods more efficient by determining which goods, in what quantities, and at what location are required to meet anticipated demand.

  • dual sourcing

    Dual sourcing is the supply chain management practice of using two suppliers for a given component, raw material, product or service. Companies use this approach to lower the risk of relying on a single supplier, a practice called single sourcing. Sole sourcing, in contrast, means only one source is available.
