Job Description:

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

Job Responsibilities

  • Utilize tools within VWGoA's demand planning software (Servigistics) and various operational reports to proactively monitor an assigned group of parts and accessories and take the appropriate actions to maintain optimal inventory levels at all locations within VWGoA's network of service parts distribution centers (e.g. balance existing inventory within network, procure additional material from supplier, etc.)

  • 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.)

  • Provide support for VWGoA's dealer facing contact center by providing updated ETAs for critical parts.

  • Place car down or expedited orders daily for out of stock situations as needed.
