Version 2

    AFF8346: Defeating Long Lead Times for High Fashion at Fossil - Imagine inventory planning with improved customer service levels, reduced costs, and less inventories, all managed without fire-fighting. By designing inventory planning based on demands, variability in demand, and variabilities in supply, Fossil created a repeatable, successful process. Fossil also designed an inventory balancing mechanism to support the execution of the plan. In addition, Fossil was able to transform supply chain characterized by long lead time, short product lifecycle, and high seasonality, all using SAP Supply Chain Management. - Larry Randolph, Fossil; Bipin Umarale, Intrigo
