Relevant MRP information does not reach the vendors. The fixed setting of delivery dates and quantities makes it difficult for the vendor to realize a foresighted planning and often results in delivery delay and high transportation costs.
In GIB Dispo-Cockpit VMI the vendor obtains all relevant MRP information from the customer system. Thus he gains the necessary room to optimize his transports and delivery quantities, his ability to deliver and his production as well as his delivery reliability.
On the basis of SAP requirements forecast, relevant VMI stock limits (maximum stock, upper and lower reorder point, safety stock) are permanently checked at material level, adjusted if necessary, and transferred to the VMI Web-Cockpit.
