Collaboration Managed Inventory (CMI) Minimum/Maximum

Based on Odette’s Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) and AIAG’s Inventory Visibility and Interoperability Min/Max Replenishment Business Process Future State (IBP-1), this recommendation explains how significant cost savings can be achieved by implementing Collaboratively Managed Inventory (CMI) Min/Max processes. Using CMI Min/Max leads to increased visibility between suppliers and customers and to a reduction in administration and transport costs.
