According to CIPS, Vendor-managed inventory (VMI) is a supply chain agreement where the manufacturer or supplier takes control of the inventory management decisions for the seller or retailer. In supply terms this means the upstream agent is responsible for the inventory of the downstream agent. This type of agreement is also known as managed inventory, continuous replenishment program, or supplier-assisted inventory replenishment.
