The aim of this document is to define the standard structure of a VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) agreement, which can be used as a guideline for the early definition of the agreement. A storage contract managed by the Kreditor is a simple way to ensure that stocks arrive on time in the factory lobby. An inventory managed by the creditor is a process by which the manufacturer takes over the stock for the distributor or distributor. It appeared that a BMI agreement should be organized in part on the general and legal aspects of the agreement, while technical and relationship issues should be addressed in the annexes. This increases the flexibility of the agreement to the extent that, over time, the amendments only concern the annexes, which leave the main part of the agreement unchanged. The goal of the system is to improve the filling rates from supplier to end customer. Now that the supplier is responsible, planning and ordering costs will decrease and inventory and inventory will decrease. The supplier wants to provide excellent service to the customer. Having the right product at the right time improves the level of service.
The lender-managed inventory model has enabled companies to offer an effective turnover rate and an effective level of profit. The model was first tested in the 1980s by Walmart and Procter and Gamble. Their vendor-managed inventory strategy has enabled Walmart to be the largest retailer in the world. A stock contract managed by the Kreditor is a simple way to ensure that stocks arrive on time in the factory lobby. Read 3 min The stock managed by the Kreditor is not reserved for large companies. For those with long delays, a VMI can help relieve this. The supplier can create containers to reduce inventory and increase purchases, which in turn is considered by SKU in different categories, resulting in significant savings. Your creditor can help you manage the costs of variables in stock. The manufacturer is aware of the distributor`s inventory and sales figures because the company`s business resource planning systems are linked. Orders are established and inventories are managed by the manufacturer at agreed levels. Retailers such as Walmart use vendor-managed inventory with great success. Zammori, F., Braglia, M.
and Frosolini, M. (2009), „A standard agreement for vendor managed inventory,“ Strategic Outsourcing: An International Journal, Vol. doi.org/10.1108/17538290910973376 From a relevant industrial application, the flow of information and technical details to be defined before the start of the operation are 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. The VMI model with CS agreement for a two-tier supply chain is under development. Coming closer from a practical point of view, this document identifies the key issues that need to be addressed in the agreement in order to meet the needs of both parties and to ensure mutual benefits. The proposed agreement has a flexible structure and can be easily taken up by the staff concerned in order to properly define and implement BMI in several industrial sectors.
