Dynamic Inventory: Raw Materials
Raw material inventory level and reorder point recommendations to help planners avoid stockouts and hit target service levels.
Big inventories, bigger problems
Supply shortages and volatile demand are the new normal for complex supply chains. That means you can’t quite trust your forecasts like you used to. A lot of businesses compensate by building bigger inventories to avoid stockout, but that ties up working capital, piles on storage costs and risks obsolescence.
Thankfully, there’s a more sensible solution.
