The Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) has released VMI: A Practitioner’s Set of Guidelines. PTDA, in its ongoing efforts to foster best-in-class business practices among distributors and manufacturers, has issued this white paper that provides information to help distributors and manufacturers explore vendor managed inventory and make an informed decision as to whether implementing this type of relationship can help their bottom line. VMI: A Practitioner’s Set of Guidelines provides both a distributor and manufacturer perspective in regards to implementation, measuring results and benefits of VMI. Also included in this white paper is a case study, glossary of terms and a checklist of prerequisites for VMI participation. This white paper is available to both members and nonmembers of PTDA.
