What is Demand Based Production?
Demand Based Production is a process that involves the overall forecasting and execution of the demand based production process. This process includes production forecasting (review of past orders, schedules, etc., as well as the estimation of funding for materials and production cost), materials procurement (may involve one or more vendors) and materials allocation. When purchasing materials, a buying plan may help choosing the best vendors to make purchases from (base choices on the volume, grade, price, etc. of materials).
