The DBM Difference

Size does matter!   We are a small but focused firm.  S&OP is our practice and our passion.  We provide direction, guidance and vision, but are not afraid to roll up our sleeves and work in the trenches with you.   Over the years we've developed a unique approach and philosophy about S&OP and how to get the most value out of the process.  

Learn how the DBM difference can work for you.   

Our History

Since 1980 we have been helping companies improve the effectiveness of their supply chains.  Over time we have honed our practice on S&OP.  Why? S&OP is the intersection between strategy and execution.  By driving executive engagement in the S&OP process we believe you have the best chance of aligning your organization to develop and execute a coordinated supply chain plan.

Our focus for the past 10 years has been almost entirely on S&OP.  This has taken us around the globe working with companies across many different industries.  We bring practitioner experience from both the operational and sales planning side.  We also bring change management expertise that will help engage your organization from the CEO down to make the right changes and to make them stick.  

 

The group of characters that you see on our web page have been following us around since 1980. They are composites of people we've worked with and continue to work with.  Most of them have been with us on the journey through Inventory Accuracy, Master Scheduling, Supply Chain Improvement and Sales and Operations Planning.  They are family and remind us, that no improvement happens without engaging people.

 

Why DBM Systems?  A system is defined as "An organized, purposeful structure that consists of interrelated and interdependent components (members or parts).  These elements continually influence one another (directly or indirectly) to maintain their activity and the existence of the system, in order to achieve the goal of the system."* S&OP is a system, it is more than a just a process. The name comes from our past, but applies to our present.
