DCRA Inc. was founded in late 2001 / early 2002 when a client of Mr. Kirkegaard asked him to start a new firm to help turn around a division of Siemens with a seriously handicapped supply chain and business model. Mr. Kirkegaard with a willing client was able to re-align, outsource all logistics and contract manufacturing, short lead times and build and deploy a comprehensive outsourced supply chain Sales and Operations Planning solution.
The S&OP solution developed by DCRA was very different it used Excel as a decentralized working UI / working application while checking in and out all data and plans to a cloud based centralized storage of all execution and planning data
During the Siemens project DCRA also developed and patented a real time version of S&OP we titled Order Commitment. This solution is the original S&OE (Sales and Operations Execution) solution and is different as it read any decentralized data for inventory, orders, in transits and YES production from any production scheduling S&OP system. Is the right way and only way to do it as does not require copying data to a 3rd location where it is stale and give wrong signal
In the 2005 to 2009 era DCRA Inc. helped dozens of client teaching them S&OP and using our S&OP technology to accelerate understanding and building flexible, agile, resilient global supply chains.
