EyeOn Inspiration Session: Next level inventory planning - high service, low costs, every day


In the past couple of years there has been a strong focus on reducing working capital. This resulted in a better cash position but did not always contributed to good service and optimal supply chain costs. Today, companies are searching for the optimal supply chain strategy. Not necessarily reducing stock, but optimizing stocks by taking into account elements like supply constraints, production wheels and warehouse capacity.

During this inspiration session we will discuss how to optimize your working capital within a broader picture.

We will discuss questions like:

  • How can I optimize inventory levels via differentiated service levels?
  • How to take into consideration the uncertainty in supply?
  • What is the impact of high utilization rates on the required safety stock?
  • Central versus decentral stock policies?
  • How does lot sizes impact inventory levels?
  • How is forecast accuracy a driving force to manage short term safety stock levels and long term inventory planning?

As a preparation to this event, we will conduct a questionnaire to understand your current challenges and best-practices. In this way we allow you to steer the program of the day in the direction of the challenges that you would like to share with your peers in the industry. We also give you the unique possibility to assess the quality of your stock via a Fast Inventory Scan. This assessment is optional. You will get a personal report providing insight in the quality of your stock based on a set of sales and inventory data.

The inspiration session will be organized on 15th of June 2017 in Antwerp. During this day we will exchange experiences and best practices to manage inventory optimization. The detailed agenda will be shared a few weeks before the event.

In the upcoming months we will approach the attendees of this event to participate in the questionnaire. The EyeOn Process & FMCG Industry teams looking forward to meet you at our inspiration event!
