Abstract:This project is executed at Jarola as graduation assignment for the Master study Industrial Engineering and Management at University of Twente. Jarola is a knowledge and trading platform for the technical market, with the biggest and most well-known subsidiary Wildkamp, a technical wholesaler. Jarola has a broad assortment of over 200,000 items. A relatively small part of the items are held in inventory (SKUs, around 20,000 items) in the distribution centre. The other part of the assortment is not held in inventory, which means that items are only ordered at the supplier if a customer has placed a sales order at Jarola. These items are called non-SKUs, items that are not stocked on purpose. The goal of the research is to increase the delivery reliability through inventory and non-inventory management (non-inventory management is the management of non-SKUs; inventory management is the management of SKUs).
