Reduce Inventory

There are many ways to reduce inventory. Our experience has shown that the best way to reduce inventory is to first understand the reasons why you are carrying inventory in the first place. Without addressing the issues first will lead to missed shipments, excessive expediting and increased cost. We have found that by dealing with identified issues as part of the solution you will be in a position to get the optimal results.

Common issues that create excessive inventory

  1. MRP- Planning – Forecasting
  2. Economic Batch Qty’s
  3. Excessive Safety Stock Levels
  4. Poor Supplier Performance
  5. Poor Data Accuracy
  6. Poor Inventory Accuracy

These are just some of the “causes” of excessive Inventory. In most cases inventory levels are created to “cover” issues. Over time more and more inventory is added as problems arise.
