The Cost of Replenishment


The cost of replenishment is calculated on a per item, per order basis. This is because it takes the same amount of internal effort to determine how much of each item you want, from which supplier, at what pricing, terms, and so on, no matter which item is being considered and no matter how many items there are on any given purchase order.

Therefore, if the R Factor is $8.00 per item on each order, and there is a single item on an order, the replenishment cost is $0.00. If there are two items, the total is $16.00. If there are three items, it’s $24.00, etc.

To calculate your cost of replenishment, use this formula:

Total Annual Costs

Anticipating Needed Stock


Often the purchase of stock items may seem to require some sort of clairvoyance to know the quantities that customers will want. SIMMS Inventory Management software will enable users to set up blocks of time — known as stages — during which such transitive items can be bought in advance of the systematic ‘rushes’ that occur throughout a financial quarter or term. Analytical reports on usage and inventory turnover can help the pattern be spotted long before the rush comes.

“Anticipatory inventory” is stock that is stacked or held by a company to provide for unanticipated demands for a product that cannot be met by the production team. In other words, if the production unit suddenly goes on a strike, finished goods will not roll out of the factory. When this happens, business’ sales are likely to be effected. But proactive companies with anticipatory inventory would be able to supply during such crises and ensure that the sales do not suffer. Anticipatory inventory is only a temporary answer and can handle sales demands until the existing stock units are depleted.

SIMMS 2017 and VMIs


For your Vendor-Managed Inventory (VMI) system to succeed, concerns of both your sales force and your distributors need to be resolved.

Here’s a list of the principal ways that such issues can be addressed:

  • Employ a complete working model of your proposed VMI model in an off-line instance before actually putting one in place at your company;
  • Implement a start-up program with vendor-owned warehouses to prove that your system works, and then do the same later with a distributor-owned warehouse, once the distributor’s questions and concerns have been shown to be minor.
  • Institute your sales team as marketers for the VMI model and initiate bonuses for them for each new client they bring in.
  • Make the process palatable to manufacturers by including their promotions in your establishment/transition period.
  • Use someone as a broker for the initial meetings you have with distributors, members of your sales team and vendors. Take their objective advice to heart and make sure the decisions address concerns of yours and those in your supply chain.

VMIs can only succeed if your supply chain contributes to a mutual benefit of your business and theirs. As an increasing number of companies gravitate into the VMI model, more information on how it works the best becomes available.

SIMMS 2017 is an evolving accounting and inventory package that embraces the VMI model. We at KCSI look forward to helping you achieve your VMI goals, with SIMMS as your primary package. Give SIMMS a free trial now here:
