Inventory Management

Mon, December 14, 2020 - Wed, December 16, 2020 (8:30 am - 3:30 pm)


Inventory Management – The Nuts and Bolts
No business can survive very long without an effective program of controls over the parts and materials that are used in producing or distributing goods and services of the firm. Like many other things that depend on human interpretation, “control” means different things to different individuals.

This is a workshop for the warehouse or stockroom manager, the person in charge of what comes in and goes out of the company. You want a smooth and cost-effective operation, with enough products on hand to satisfy needs without stockpiling too much.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
Understand terms that are frequently used in warehouse management
Identify the goals and objectives of inventory management, and measure their process against these goals
Calculate safety stock, reorder points, and order quantities
Evaluate inventory management systems
Identify the parts of the inventory cycle
Better maintain inventory accuracy
