Flexible Inventory Management

The VMI Principle

Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI), also known as Supplier Managed Inventory, is the answer to the challenges of modern logistics.

Here, suppliers take control of production and stock levels. The result? More flexible planning and a faster response to changes in customer demand.

VMI Principle

The Benefits for Your Company

Increase Efficiency and Reduce Costs

VMI transfers the responsibility for inventory management almost entirely to suppliers, creating a win-win situation for both sides of the supply chain. While customers benefit from optimized inventory levels and lower logistics costs, suppliers achieve more efficient inventory planning, cost savings through automation and stronger customer loyalty through VMI.

In addition, the standardized EDI messages of the VMI process lead to the automation of delivery, procurement and goods receipt processes. This means maximum process reliability, increased efficiency, optimal warehouse capacities and considerable cost savings for all parties involved.

The VMI Process in Detail

Seamless Collaboration Between Customer & Supplier

The VMI process between customer and supplier is transparent and efficient:

The customer sends its inventory and sales forecast data for the items to the supplier using standardized EDI messages (inventory report / delivery call-off / sales report). This data is processed in the supplier's ERP system, the stock and production planning is updated and the next deliveries are planned.

The customer receives the order references and delivery confirmations upon delivery via EDI. The EDI order references and delivery confirmations received are automatically processed in the customer's ERP system for electronic support of goods receipt and for handling the ordering process.
