Discussion

Vendor-Managed Inventory (VMI) puts the responsibility for inventory management on the manufacturer instead of the retailer. However, for VMI to work, the manufacturer must have access to retailer sales and inventory data, something that a lot of firms are not willing to share. However, VMI has many benefits.
