A proposal of approach to positioning and sizing of inventory leather to aftermarket supply chain

Title: Uma Abordagem para o Posicionamento e Dimensionamento de Estoques de Couros Aftermarket na Cadeia de Suprimentos. (A proposal of approach to positioning and sizing of inventory leather to aftermarket supply chain).

Abstract: The current practice of supply chain management tends to force the forward of products to retail in supply chain. These attitudes maintain the inventory as near of consumer, accounting for suppliers sales. Using Theory of Constraints (TOC) principles to management of distribution systems, we attempted to define the place to maintain inventory to meet the domestic market for automotive leather called aftermarket. This paper, therefore, suggests the creation of strategies and actions that enable the customer offer the desired products, quantity, at the place and right time, avoiding the failure of the product at the point of sale.
