Differ. VMI(Vendor Managed Inventory) and SMI(Supplier Managed Inventory)?

Hi all~

I'm beginner in SNC.

SNC have SMI scenario. But I think SNC-SMI is same as MM-VMI scenario.

  • SMI

======================================================

The SMI process is a supplier-driven replenishment and planning process, which is based on min/max stock balance levels, on current demand, in-transits and planned shipments.

======================================================

  • VMI

======================================================

[http://www50.sap.com/businessmaps/459B5C21A96411D3870B0000E820132C.htm|http://www50.sap.com/businessmaps/459B5C21A96411D3870B0000E820132C.htm]

With vendor managed inventory scenarios, manufacturers can offer their customers a value added service by performing the replenishment planning task for their business partners.

Anyone can help to verify differ or same?

Thank you.
