Collaboration Partners

Advanced Purchasing Dynamics (APD) is a consulting and technology firm focused on cost and collaboration in the manufacturing supply chain.  Founded in 2004 by Jeoff Burris, APD feeds his passion for understanding costs and working collaboratively with suppliers. APD has a history of helping clients find the answers to the four fundamental cost questions listed below.

  • What does it cost?
  • What should it cost?
  • What is the plan to close the gap?
  • What is the plan to reduce the should-be cost?

APD works with their clients to plot the course for Purchasing 4.0 where vast sums of cost and pricing data are leveraged with AI and machine learning. As a result, this leads to provide predictive cost and pricing analytics.
