ABC ANALYSIS, KANBAN  
How you can reduce your overall inventory


Date: 


January 20, 2015
Networking: 5:00 – 6:00
Speaker: 6:00 – 7:00
Dinner: 7:15

Place:

Delaney House
Route 5 (Northampton St.)
Holyoke


This presentation will challenge outdated information and will detail how organizations can utilize ABC analysis to reduce overall inventory.  Included will be an in-depth discussion of various ways that optimal kanban quantities can be established for each item, and what the signal or trigger mechanism may look like for internal and external supply partners.  In addition, a key aspect which will be addressed is how these improvements can be achieved without increasing the number of stock-outs affecting your customers.

Participants in this session will be provided with the skills necessary to effectively understand and explain questions related to inventory turns, in terms of both days and dollars of inventory.  By using historical usage data, we’ll see how a strategy begins to emerge that allows for more timely, accurate purchase orders and a more level-loaded forecast for supply partners.

SPEAKER:  Thomas Cantin is CPIM certified and teaches certification classes for the APICs Western Massachusetts Chapter.  He holds a BSBA and MBA from Western New England University, and is currently Supply Chain Manager at Crane Stationery in North Adams, MA.  In 2015 he’ll be leading the development and implementation of SIOP which will integrate various sets of models, tools, and techniques which includes a forecast-driven financial plan with both MTS and MTO segments.
