Office Depot

Office Depot sells a wide range of office supply products and services in the United States and internationally. The company tries to offer a wider range of office supplies at lower cost than other retailers by using just-in-time replenishment and tight inventory control systems. It uses information from a demand forecasting system and point-of-sale data to replenish its inventory in its 1,600 retail stores.

Prepare a 2-page proposal that explains how these systems help Office Depot minimize costs and any other benefits they provide.

Also, identify and describe other supply chain management applications that would be especially helpful to Office Depot.
