Distribution Resource Planning
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
