供應商管理存貨（Vendor Managed Inventory，簡稱VMI）是一種在供應鏈管理環境下之存貨管理的運作模式。它是將多方面供應鏈問題轉化成單方面庫存管理問題，是以實際或預測顧客的需求及庫存量，作為市場需求預測和庫存補貨的解決方法。供應商經由VMI可得到顧客銷售資料之需求訊息，可以更有效的計劃存貨、更快速的反應市場變化及顧客需求變化。近年來許多企業為降低成本與背負存貨風險，整合了上中下游資源，實施VMI的供應鏈戰略來進行企業之間的聯盟。面對當今資訊電子產業微利的時代，企業普遍希望能藉其合作廠商實施VMI來降低公司存貨成本、以避免不必要的囤貨與缺料斷線並增加供貨彈性，保持公司的競爭優勢。 本研究主要欲探討台灣資訊電子產業為何要導入VMI管理機制？導入的影響及其相關考量因素有哪些？在推動VMI的過程中，企業所面臨的困難與解決方法？以及採用VMI能為企業帶來哪些效益？ 本研究藉此個案分析及運用，呈現導入VMI對資訊電子企業確能有顯著效益產生並能明顯改善存貨管理。 Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) is a method of operational mode for inventory management in the environment of supply chain management. In essence, it is a concept for integrating unilateral supply chain inventory management issues into a single inventory management problem. Based on customers’ actual or forecasted demands and inventory levels inventory replenishment solutions can be obtained through VMI. Suppliers can learn sales information from customers’ demands messages and perform more effective plans for rapid responses to market changes and customer needs. In recent years, many companies have been integrating the resources of whole supply chain pipelines to form VMI supply chain strategic alliances between enterprises in order to reduce inventory costs and risks. To face today''s low-profit era in electronic manufacturing industry, companies hope to cooperate with its partners to implement VMI to reduce inventory costs, avoid unnecessary stockpiles and material shortages to increase supply flexibility and maintain companys’ competitive advantage. This study is to investigate why Taiwan''s IT industries import VMI management mechanisms? What related considerations are considered? What are the difficulties and solutions in the process of initiating and implementing VMI mechanism? And finally, what benefits can be brought up to enterprise for using VMI? By the case study, we have shown that VMI indeed contents many significant properties that can increase operating benefits, reduce inventory costs and effectively improve company’s inventory management system.
