Vendor Managed Inventory

At its core, our VMI program allows us to support our customer’s demands for reduced inventory, increased inventory turns and JIT (just in time) inventory management. These are key elements of lean manufacturing principles, wherein manufacturers try to push the onus for inventory as far upstream as possible. By tightening the entire supply chain, we work together to bring new efficiencies to the process.

Beyond just embracing VMI, we strive to optimize these arrangements to meet each customer’s specific needs. From inventory logistics to terms and conditions, we want to ensure that we deliver the responsiveness and service YOU demand.

Our digital capabilities help us eliminate complicated and costly set-up efforts. Our inventory management system gives us complete visibility and control over our entire live inventory. And our velocity scheduling approach helps drive all of our manufacturing activities to be more efficient than ever. It’s part of what makes JN White® different. We think differently, and our innovative solutions help us shrink lead times, reduce liabilities, and free up capacity.

We invite you to contact us today to discuss how a VMI program from JN White® can help create price and process advantages for you and your business.

VMI Vendor Managed Inventory

Vendor Managed Inventory Program Highlights

Blanket Order & Release

In this VMI arrangement, we work with customers to establish a sensible EAU (estimate annual usage) and annual contract price for a specified component, meaning you’ll always have access to the exact amount of stock you need.

Kanban Programs

We have a great deal of experience with these situations and can work closely with OEMs to ensure our component deliveries match up with their specific production demands.

Velocity Scheduling

A key component of the JN White® process is the use of velocity scheduling to manage the inventory on our side of the supply chain.

Ultra-Competitive Terms

A tremendous benefit of our velocity-scheduled VMI program is that we can pass a variety of competitive advantages back down the supply chain to our customers.

"Very pleased with your team's response to our need during the COVID-19 crisis."
Lisa L., Medical Device
"JN White has been exceptional in working with our company in order to develop the look and feel of our new MRI patient worn transmitter. We had originally worked with a prior manufacturer for an earlier version of this product with much less desirable results. JN White delivered a clean professional product at a very reasonable price on time!"
Gary P., Medical
"We had very little information to work with and Jessica James made it nearly effortless on our end to get us exactly what we needed in a timely manner."
Lexi W., Industrial Equipment
"Getting any after-market graphic overlays done always has a certain risk factor in getting it all right. You guys were helpful, patient, & knowledgeable to achieve the best end result. Even pointing out some things that might be [an] oversight or [areas for] improvements. The outcome was perfect."
