Vendor Managed Inventory - How To Do It Right, As a "Win-Win" For Supplier and Customer

Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) takes many different forms, at many different companies. When implemented correctly, VMI can be a "win-win" for both supplier and customer. But unfortunately, too often VMI helps only one company, or even worse, adds costs and inventory across the combined supply chain. In this webinar, we will discuss best practices for implementing VMI, focusing on the techniques that will improve overall supply chain performance, benefitting both the supplier and their customer. The webinar will also include case studies that illustrate these best practices from a variety of industries. Attendees will learn how to design and optimize VMI to ensure "win-win" results in their companies.
