A midsize infrastructure company was confronting critical challenges, notably deteriorating lead times for key materials, excessive capital tied up in overstocked inventory, and the risk of project delays due to inventory shortages. Compounding this situation was the reliance on subject matter experts to manually determine appropriate stocking levels, without the support of statistical analysis, leading to inefficiencies in inventory management. These circumstances underscored the urgent need to optimize inventory stocking levels and implement an automated analysis solution to replace outdated manual processes. The resulting solution enhanced operational reliability and armed the supply chain organization with the rigorous analysis necessary to justify appropriate material additions and reductions.
