Practical Inventory and Warehouse Management

Should you overstock or understock? Well, you should not do either as both may result in negative impact to your organisation’s finances. Similarly, poor inventory management could result in obsolete stock and even theft, causing financial lost. Effective inventory and warehouse management requires adequate systems to be put in place to track items when they are in and when they go out. It is important that all inventories items in a warehouse are recorded in one place, so that the items can be found whenever they are required. Inventory management also has implications on customer service.

This two-day course will cover the most important aspects of inventory management from warehouse design and operations through forecasting requirements and parts variety reduction to evaluating inventory practices and building an effective inventory management plan of action.
