About the role
The CPFR model presents the aspects in which industries focus. The model provides a basic framework for the flow of information, goods, and services.
In the retail industry the retailer typically fills the buyer role, a manufacturer fills the seller role, and the consumer is the end customer.
The center of the model is represented as the consumer, followed by the middle ring of the retailer, and finally the outside ring being the manufacturer.
Each ring of the model represents different functions within the CPFR model. The consumer drives demand for goods and services while the retailer is the provider of goods and services.
The manufacturer supplies the retailer stores with product as demand for product is pulled through the supply chain by the end user, being the consumer.
The CPFR is the primary point of contact for the inventory management / replenishment management associates at our customers, and is a critical point of contact for the buying / purchasing management associates at our customers.
The role is critical to developing a high quality relationship with this supply chain driven customer, and plays a vital internal role supporting GSV growth and driving operational efficiencies working jointly with Supply and Demand Planning.
Key accountabilities and responsibilities
