Jacobs Douwe Egberts is a global coffee & tea company, serving consumers in more than 100 countries in the world. JDE offers coffee solutions regarding machines, ingredients and branded products. Concerning the latter category, famous JDE brands are Jacobs, Tassimo, Moccona, Senseo, L’OR, DouweEgberts, Super, Kenco, Pilao & Gevalia.
Due to the recent increase in commodity and fuel prices, the cost of goods increased which mean that the value of stock in warehouses has increased for JDE. However, there are large differences between the stock level according to their inventory management system and the actual stock level. JDE Coffee strives to have more accurate projections and inventory value control.
The goal of this project is to get insight in the differences between their projected- and actual inventory levels. JDE Coffee should get to know what differences exist, where these occur (factory, product, country) and what causes them.
Furthermore, JDE Coffee will receive advice for improvement of their inventory visibility. These improvements should sustain reduction of inventory value with with no impact on customer service level. All findings should be documented in a final report.
