SMI for Baker Hughes Suppliers
SMI provides capability to share visibility into inventory levels and (gross) demand information. The Buyer will establish Min/Max stock levels and days of supply for fulfillment consideration for particular items.
Suppliers are to initiate replenishment order by creating a Sales Order based on buyer’s demand. This is then reflected as a replenishment order in Ariba which automatically creates a corresponding Purchase Order in the Buyer’s SAP ERP system.
