Inventory Optimization

A surprising number of supply chain planners rely on outdated inventory management models.

Case in point – conventional single-stage, single-item inventory optimization models that look at each stock item and stock location in isolation. But today's global, inter-connected business operations are far better served by a multi-dimensional approach towards inventory management to prevent stock-outs and improve supply efficiency.

Fact is, even at the most buttoned-up operations, inventory optimization initiatives often pay big financial and operational dividends.
