Inventory optimization to prevent stockouts

Due to an inefficient method of handling the large number of style-size combinations typical of complex sports shoe inventories, Dportenis suffered from a high rate of stock-outs. Visibility across the supply chain was also very limited, and there was no mechanism to balance stock among the various stores, often leaving stores with high inventories or missing urgently-needed sizes.
Analyzing daily consumption patterns enabled identification of the unique behavior of each SKU (style/size) per store, so the right inventory was available without amassing unnecessary stock, lowering the buffer when sales are low and increasing it as sales grow.
