Job Description

The purpose of the Procurement Analyst position is to optimize the stocking levels of an assigned group of parts and accessories within the company’s network of service parts distribution centers in order to minimize inventory carrying costs while maintaining fill rate (order fulfillment %) targets for the dealer network within the U.S. and Canada and for applicable export markets.

·         Work with individual suppliers to develop structured supply recovery plans for critical backorder situations (e.g. demand outpaces forecast or demand outpaces supplier production capacity).

·         Prepare formal escalation summaries for management when supplier concerns are unable to be resolved at the working level.

·         Utilize problem solving techniques to identify the root cause and develop countermeasures when targets for critical metrics are not met.

·         Track and prepare management reports for critical parts (e.g. top backorder count, top backorder age, top backorder $ value, top contributors to lost fill, etc.)
