The overarching goal of vendor managed inventory is to establish a relationship that allows both parties to work more fluidly, accurately and efficiently. With VMI, the manufacturer or distributor takes on the responsibility of handling your inventory planning and restocking.

In a properly-tuned VMI relationship, both you and the supplier benefit due to the steady, dependable exchange of necessary components. To ensure a mutually beneficial partnership, here are a few tips on how you can make vendor managed inventory work for you.
