RVCF LinkedIn Groups Discussion Highlights

RVCF offers retail industry professionals the opportunity to discuss supply chain and inventory related topics within LinkedIn Groups. Our three primary groups include "Building and Using a Better Retail Scorecard", "Retail Value Chain Federation (RVCF)" and "RVCF - Retail Inventory Planning and Replenishment."


Building and Using a Better Scorecard

CURRENT DISCUSSION THREAD:
Got time for a quick & easy polling question? "What is your favorite KPI for measuring Supplier level inventory productivity?"

I suspect there are quite a few good ways to scorecard inventory productivity out there, I'm partial to "GMROI" (gross margin return on inventory), but I also like "inventory turns." What other ways do you look at inventory productivity? Take a minute and post back the metric you like best and let's see how many different ways our group look at this important measurement!

This group is comprised exclusively of currently active individuals working at a retailer that are engaged in, or have an interest in, retail scorecarding of supplier performance. If you qualify and would like to join, CLICK HERE to submit your request.


RVCF - Retail Inventory Planning and Replenishment

Continuous Improvement; Secret Formula Discovered

In an age of what some might describe as over-planning and under-doing, more continuous improvement is in desperate need. But is it also a secret to success?

Explore best practices and address forecasting and inventory concerns for different types of products by working collaboratively with suppliers to assure that product flow is sufficient to meet demand of seasonal sales and promotion to enable both trading partners a higher level of sales dollars.
