Distribution Resource Planning

The Gateway to True Quick Response and Continual Replenishment

Quick Response/Continual Replenishment rapidly increases the velocity with which products go from manufacturer to the final customer. But operating in a Quick Response mode requires new links between suppliers, retailers and manufacturers if they want to create a highly responsive distribution system.

Distribution Resource Planning tells readers how to design, implement, and manage a distribution system based on Quick Response/Continual Replenishment concepts. The benefits are many:

  • Increased levels of customer satisfaction through timely, accurate deliveries
  • Reduced inventory levels
  • Lower distribution costs
  • Productivity improvements in manufacturing
  • Enhanced capabilities to accurately forecast inventory levels and cash flow requirements
  • Lower operating costs for all pipeline customers
