Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)

This Odette recommendation has been developed to assist suppliers in the management of inventory production. The Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) process explains how suppliers can efficiently analyse inventories and maintain production levels between set maximum and minimum amounts. This can bring significant benefits by reducing administration and logistics costs whilst ensuring the on-going security of supplies.
