Chapter 8 - Inventory Management3 Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Conventional bar codes are replaced with computer chips or smart tags. Use wireless technology to track inventory.
Chapter 8 - Inventory Management4 Wal-Mart RFID Early adopter of RFID is Wal-Mart. By January 2005, 53 of its top 100 suppliers were sending RFID-tagged goods to its three distribution centers in the Dallas, Texas area. Wal-Mart’s goal is to have all top 100 suppliers shipping RFID-tagged goods by the end of February 2005 in addition to 37 other suppliers.
Chapter 8 - Inventory Management5 Wal-Mart RFID continued The impetus for Wal-Mart’s investment in RFID was the lack of visibility it had into its backroom storage areas. The major drawback to RFID is its cost. In 2005, the cost of smart tags was $0.25 each if purchased in volume, and $0.75 if purchased in smaller quantities. The stated goal in the industry is to get the price of smart tags down to $.05
Chapter 8 - Inventory Management6 Vendor-Managed Inventory (VMI) With VMI, suppliers are given responsibility for managing the inventory carried by their retail or wholesale customers. Rich Products, a $2 billion family-owned food company headquartered in Buffalo, NY, has a partnership with IBM to provide VMI services to the grocery industry for its frozen food items.

Chapter 8 - Inventory Management14 Reorder Point Systems Reorder point Lead time Two-bin system Perpetual inventory system
Chapter 8 - Inventory Management15 A Reorder Point System
Chapter 8 - Inventory Management16 Periodic Review System maximum inventory level - on-hand inventory - on-order quantity + demand over lead time reorder quantity
