This paper presents a multi-phase approach to solving the disconnects in Albertson's supply chain integration. The writer recommends the creation of a demand driven supply network (DDSN) which includes IT applications that will collect and analyze incoming sales data from stores and suppliers, and manage prices and inventory replenishment. Distribution centers must have space optimization plans and real-time pricing and return information to gauge the value and turn levels of individual products. The paper concludes that retail locations need to be used both to listen to the customers' needs and to validate pricing and product selection optimization.
