Full Course Description:
Every distributor has to answer two questions when replenishing inventory: When to reorder products and how much to order. In this half day session we will explore how to ensure that your company is using “best in class” practices to ensure that you consistently meet or exceed customers’ expectations of product availability. Topics will include accurate demand forecasting, dealing with unreliable lead times and suppliers, evaluating vendor offers, when to establish a central warehouse or distribution center, and the special challenges of overseas purchasing.
