The Procurement Process is, perhaps, one of the most misunderstood and mis-managed in small and mid-sized manufacturing. Proper vendor management and replenishment and fulfillment policies can reduce end-product lead times and focus inventory investment. Buying policies based on experience, intuition, and fear consume capital and warehouse space while doing little to improve throughput, customer satisfaction and profitability.

When used with Adaptive Buffer Management, Project-based Purchasing, Constraint Statuses, and digital purchasing, Sabe can guide your purchasing department to minimize stockouts by maximizing your inventory investment.
