Improve service levels, reduce obsolescence, improve cash position, reduce time-to-market, or simply be more adaptable to changes and events: there are many reasons why companies may want to reduce the amount of inventory in their supply chain. Not least, the costs of keeping inventory in the range of 20%-30%. Reducing inventories while at the same time getting better grip on service levels can typically be achieved with simple means.

It starts with understanding the reasons for holding inventory.

Topics at this event:
– How to collect Business rules and assumptions
– Data collection and validation
– Execution analysis
– Lead time analysis
– Forecast and demand analysis
– Categorization
– Safety stock analysis

Agenda of the event

12.00 Welcome with lunch

13.00 Kick-off by EyeOn

13.30 Inventory in the networked world by Ieke le Blanc
Many companies regularly do attempts to right size inventory; improve service where necessary, lower the inventory where possible. Given complexity this seldom is optimized in the view of the underlying network and that is missed opportunity. In this presentation, Ieke will present a case of a company that we supported in their journey to integrally optimize their inventory network. The potential savings are large, but the road to harvest is not without pitfalls.

14.30 Networking break

15.00 Every year a new inventory reduction program? How do I get Sales, Operations and Finance accepting the same inventory targets? by Freek Aertsen
In his presentation Freek shows an Inventory Management framework that allows you to structurally drive inventories towards company-wide accepted levels. During the presentation he will share several company cases.

16.00 Short Break

16.15 Driving Inventory Health through modeling and advanced analytics by Joost Rongen
Rightsizing and balancing inventories in a network with tens of supply sites and central and local warehouse is not an easy task. It starts with building a clear end-to-end insight into inventory positions, supply performance and consumption dynamics. Latest analytics techniques facilitate, create focus and support fast scenario analysis to drive inventory health. In this session Joost Rongen will introduce a modeling approach & platform, using real life company cases.

17.00 Wrap Up

17.30 Drinks & time for networking
