Case: Vendor-Managed Inventory at NIBCO
This case takes a “horizontal” slice through a number of coexistent issues. As a result, the challenge is “knowing where to start” – just as it is in real organizations – and this requires detective work.
After reading the cases please respond to the questions below.
1.) What other initiatives should NIBCO embark on to leverage its IT lead?
2.) How can NIBCO’s business managers gain greater insights into its product manufacturing and distribution costs with an information warehouse?
3.) How can NIBCO improve its customer’s relationships?
4.) Can NIBCO selectively increase prices and achieve other increased revenues with investments in new CRM and business intelligence tools? Or should it focus instead on a more aggressive growth-by-acquisition strategy to both increase revenues and achieve cost savings, such as achieve with TOLCO?
