Inventory Toolkit : Business Systems Solutions - by Geoff Relph & Catherine Milner (Paperback)
About this item
Effective inventory management can increase revenue, reduce costs, and help to reach KPI targets. The Inventory Toolkit is an indispensable guide for operations management professionals who are looking to improve the effectiveness of the inventory management and Material Resource Planning (MRP) functions within their organizations. Looking beyond the complexity and theory of inventory management, Geoff Relph and Catherine Milner focus on the most important decisions managers need to make when managing inventory and achieving targets set in the boardroom.
The Inventory Toolkit examines how inventory management should work, how to control it, and how to balance it through the use of the revolutionary k-curve methodology. This comprehensive second instalment of Inventory Management includes case studies from diverse industries such as retail and aerospace, and contains worked examples and regular exercises which illustrate how the inventory tools can be used in an operational setting. Accompanying online resources include Excel workbooks with ready-to-use formulae, which encourage the reader to experiment with the data and gain a better understanding of the practical effects of each formula.
