The technique uses data from your existing MRP or ERP system and identifies which inventory rules are out of date in your company. It uses demand-driven logic and provides the dollar focus necessary for prioritizing your specific inventory improvement opportunities. This methodology was developed by 35 purchasing and materials managers to make the planner/buyer job easier. It helps them reduce excess inventories and increase turns, while avoiding shortages and improving working capital.
