Michelin VMOIShifting towards automatic replenishment of European B2B customersContact us
ContextMichelin wanted better control over their inventory levels and production to be able to fulfil all B2B customer needs. The group wanted to develop a Vendor Inventory Management solution based on the sharing of information on stock levels and demand with their customers, to set up an automatic replenishment system.
ChallengesThe main challenge was to overcome the lack of flexibility of existing IT systems. Kbrw had to create interconnections between the different information systems of all Michelin’s B2B customers to enable the sharing of information required for automatic replenishment.
SolutionThe solution developed by Kbrw periodically retrieves information directly from the information systems belonging to Michelin’s B2B customers and compares it with the group’s internal information. A complex system of decision rules has been implemented to set replenishment dates for B2B customers and adapt production accordingly.
OutcomeThanks to the project having been rolled out at European level, Michelin can now streamline its production and efficiently manage stock levels and B2B customer replenishments in a dynamic way throughout Europe.
