Based on a relevant industrial application, the flow of information and technical details to be defined before commissioning will be identified and discussed. This data is used as key elements to define the basic framework of the agreement. Particular attention is paid to the “Technical Specifications” and “Service Level Agreement” sections. In my experience, the following risks need to be managed in the Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) transaction: a few points related to this summary: – “Better transparency will allow for the transition from air freight to sea freight” I think this is a pretty strong expression, without knowing air and sea transport LTs, demand dynamics and inventory cost. – As mentioned in some previous comments, there are many things to agree between the customer and the supplier in the VMI logistics model. This coincides with the conclusion of my master`s thesis “already covered with dust” for the implementation of VMI (with consignment): the most difficult and tedious part of the implementation project is the legal agreement. Configuring transport and system-to-system connections with developed messages and associated functionality in Legacy systems with SOX requirements is the simplest part of the implementation. Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) is defined as vendor/vendor managed inventory. Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) includes a party other than the customer, who assumes responsibility for the elements of inventory management, including inventory fixing and management, post-orders and reloading. Many vendors use VMI software to help them determine order requirements. VMI software can be part of an ERP suite like SAP or a standalone option like products from Blue Habanero, LevelMonitor, NetVMI or others. It is demonstrated that an agreement on BMI should be divided into parts dealing with the general and legal aspects of the agreement, while technical and relational aspects should be addressed in the annexes. This increases the flexibility of the agreement, as the VMI relationship evolves over time and the amendments only concern the annexes, with the main part of the agreement remaining unchanged.
Some suppliers make available to their customers a Delivery Notice (ASN) to inform them of an in-depth order known as EDI 856. The customer can also benefit from a reduced acquisition cost. Since the supplier receives data and no orders, the purchasing department has to spend less time calculating and creating orders….
