Recently, there has been an increased focus on supply chain collaboration efforts such as Vendor-Managed Inventory (VMI). Often, supply chain partners have experienced gaps between desired and actual performance in working towards a successful collaborative relationship. In this research, we analysed two VMI initiatives that have not yet produced the level of performance desired by the supply chain partners involved. In each case, an operations audit was performed to determine where… Expand

Analytical hierarchy process-based framework for VMI adoption
TLDR
An AHP-based framework for the adoption of VMI practices is presented and shows adoption issues at different levels in the hierarchy and helps to prioritise the VMI adoption issues by making pairwise comparisons between them. Expand
AN ADOPTION OF VENDOR MANAGED INVENTORY IN THAILAND HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY by
The concept of vendor managed inventory (VMI) radically changes a traditional inventory management. With regard to the traditional concept, customers make a replenishment decision. However, the VMIExpand
Vendor managed inventory: Why you need to talk to your supplier
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to investigate the concept of Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) from an inter-organisational perspective. Extant literature on VMI tends to investigate the conceptExpand

TLDR
An MOPSO algorithm is developed combining with the simulation model to identify non-dominated solutions that constitute the trade-off curve between fill rate and total inventory that dominate existing operations if downstream customers require a very high service level. Expand
Vendor-managed inventory: a literature review on theoretical and empirical studies and future research directions
TLDR
The findings are that most theoretical studies examine event-based VMI contracts such as (z, Z)-type contracts, while the penalties/rewards are based on long-term performance in many VMI agreements observed in practice. Expand
DEVELOPMENT OF A SPREADSHEET BASED VENDOR MANAGED INVENTORY MODEL FOR A SINGLE ECHELON SUPPLY CHAIN: A CASE STUDY
Vendor managed inventory (VMI) is a supply chain initiative where the supplier assumes the responsibility for managing inventories using advanced communication means such as online messaging and dataExpand

SYNOPSIS: Strategic cost management is the deliberate alignment of a firm’s resources and associated cost structure with long-term strategy and short-term tactics. Although managers continue toExpand
The value of VMI beyond information sharing in a single supplier multiple retailers supply chain under a non-stationary (Rn, Sn) policy ☆
TLDR
Investigating the incremental value that VMI provides beyond IS in terms of expected cost savings, inventory reductions, and decrease in shipment sizes from the supplier to the retailers reveals that the decision transfer component of VMI improves these performance measures significantly when the supplier's setup cost is low and order issuing efficiency is high. Expand
Numerical simulation-based investigation on vendor managed inventory model
In a vendor managed inventory system, vendor or supplier is given the responsibilities of managing the customer’s stock. The fundamental change is that the ordering phase of the process is saved, andExpand

Collaborative arrangements among members of the supply chain have received a great deal of interest in recent years as a means of reducing costs. One such arrangement is vendor managed inventoryExpand
The effect of vendor managed inventory (VMI) dynamics on the Bullwhip Effect in supply chains
TLDR
VMI is shown to be significantly better at responding to volatile changes in demand such as those due to discounted ordering or price variations, and inventory recovery as measured by the integral of time×absolute error performance metric is substantially improved via VMI. Expand

TLDR
It is found that supply chain members working for organizations with high levels of employee involvement and logistics integration were more likely to realize the potential values of VMI, and contrary to the notion that large organizations have more slack resources in technology adoption and implementation, VMI benefited small organizations most.
