An industrial distribution company recently acquired two similar size companies, and wished to move to a single customer Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) delivery process.
Flow Consulting pulled key members of all three firms together and facilitated a kaizen that captured the current processes being used by all three entities. The team developed a process that all three entities could enthusiastically agree upon.
Complete buy-in, as the future process incorporated the best aspects of all three entities current processes. In addition, the new process incorporated best-in-class Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) processes. Completed implementation is targeted for less than 8 weeks.
