With the exception of companies whose stated business is retail, most companies tend to ignore distribution. This is a huge mistake. Since every company is a link in a supply chain, most already realize that as long as the end consumer has not bought, nobody has sold. The biggest clot in the supply chain - the majority of the inventories - are usually found in the distribution stage. If a company wants to prosper its managers must understand how to help the distribution link to drastically improve its performance.

You will learn how to carry out practical changes and what are the points you should take into account to have a successful implementation.

Pull System - trigger supply based on actual consumption.

Replenishment - supply the minimum necessary amount to protect availability during the replenishment lead time.

Aggregation - placing inventory in the right place to significantly reduce the amount of inventory required to protect against consumption variability.

This program will show you the Theory of Constraints (TOC) solution for distribution environments to ensure availability at point of sale, while significantly reducing inventory levels.
