When is VMI an Ideal Arrangement

Vendor Managed Inventory is not the ideal arrangement for everyone and a careful analysis of the company's hardware needs and use cycle is critical in ensuring that it is a cost beneficial approach. Typically, VMI provides the greatest benefits when the manufacturing process uses the same parts consistently. If significant changes are common for the hardware needs at a specific plant, VMI may only create additional complexity and limit the cost saving opportunity. During our initial meeting we will assess your existing hardware use cycle and provide guidance for the optimal solution.
