Inventory Replenishment

Regarding landrine's question: Inventory Replenishment is part of a primary value process.
You must also identify your POV. Either you are replenishing your customer's inventory (e.g., you are Procter & Gamble and your customer is Walmart); or you are having your inventory replenished (e.g., you are Walmart and Procter & Gamble is your supplier).
