As a consequence of global policy, P&G Pet Care has to lower their inventory levels. Several measures have been taken, however they did not fulfill the stated target. Therefore other methods/theories, like multi-echelon, are needed to lower the total inventory. During this research one multi-echelon method and several other methods which will lower the inventory level are tested with a simulation model. It could be concluded that the highest benefit could not be reached by implementing a multi-echelon theory, but by standardizing the production schedule and optimizing the current system.
