Dynamic Cycle-time Reduction Associates (DCRA Inc.) was founded to assist clients in achieving competitive advantage through supply chain excellence. DCRA achieves rapid results through dramatically reducing wasted buffers of inventory and un-utilized capacity between manufacturers and their suppliers, distributors, customers, outsourcing logistics and manufacturing partners. DCRA also believes most supply chain technologies are best used as enabling tools in a larger value based supply chain program – not as “black box” answers. Derived from this experience, DCRA developed proprietary solutions for netting demand and supply through S&OP processes, supply chain execution repositories, planning coordination repositories and real time Google like S&OP Order Commitment solutions. In February 2010 Patents were issues covering all of our unique solutions.
The DCRA Inc. approach enables your people to continue to apply their unique demand and supply insights much more rapidly with a scientific demand and supply netting process and tools that save enormous amounts of time. Thus either individually or as an executive team your operation can plan better, faster and even use planning algorithms in real time to respond to unplanned events. These solutions were built in conjunction with major clients in numerous industries and are so unique and value add they are patented.
