Inventory Optimization Model Project

MillerKnoll is striving to unify and enhance the performance of legacy companies Herman Miller and Knoll by standardizing and enhancing work processes. The Tauber team was tasked with rationalizing inventory management processes across the two companies using the task seating business as a pilot. This team improved the current raw material efficiency and delivered a go-forward algorithm for inventory management decision-making, replicable across the business.
