Managing inventories is a very important task. Inventories
account for an enormous portion of a firm’s cash expenditure,
ranging anywhere from 10 percent to as high as 60 percent or
more. Failure to effectively manage inventories can result in
excess costs that drag down company profitability and create
mismatches between what is available and what customers
really want. This course will focus on the purpose and function
of inventory and inventory replenishment management.
The emphasis will be on improving your company’s inventory management, demand planning, forecasting, and S&OP methods and processes which will have an immediate impact on your company.
The Course Director, Ravindra, is a senior educator with KnoWerX Education and will use his wealth of real-world experience to provide valuable education for empowering you with the knowledge and skills to minimise inventory and improve customer fulfilment and retention during any market condition.
