Abstract

Stock is generally considered to be a sign of incomplete material flow control in logistics and supply chains. However, it often cannot be eliminated, because the specific conditions in the link do not allow doing so for a variety of reasons. It is not possible to achieve full coordination of material flows based on the implementation of modern methods of material flow management, such as the CPFR method (Collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment). The paper presents results of two primary researches carried out in metallurgy wholesale and an engineering company that uses metallurgical materials as input. It evaluates the research results and makes comparisons between inventory management approaches of the two companies. It also shows how the inventory management approaches in these companies affect the specific conditions prevailing among their suppliers of metallurgical materials, i.e. the specific conditions associated with metallurgical production.

Keywords: Stock, supply chain, logistics, CPFR, metallurgy
