Vendor Managed Inventory? Think twice and consider the risks!
Supply Chain View from the Field
AUGUST 28, 2013
Historically, businesses have used one of two extremes for inventory management: push-based or pull-based. Push-based inventory management uses demand forecast to manage inventory and replenish from the supply base. Pull-based inventory management, on the other hand, uses consumption to replenish from the supply base and manage inventory. Inventory levels actually increased at downstream (buyer) facilities. 11, 2009.
