Defining optimal inventory management
The primary objective, as we saw above, is to be supplied to satisfy the customer by avoiding losses by not being able to sell.
That is why it is a condition “sine qua non” to define how our inventory management should be. With what periodicity it has to be carried out, who is going to carry it out, what tools we can use,…
It will also be necessary to take into account whether there is any type of regulation regarding our product that requires more detailed monitoring.
Therefore, it is necessary to take into account to define an optimal management, at least these points:
Having an updated inventory is important, as a company’s stock is one of its primary assets.
Defining how our inventory process should be is fundamental. In this way we will configure the parameters to follow to make the inventory useful and efficient. Whether or not it is worth doing it more or less often, whether it is necessary to do it for all the products or only part of them, etc. We cannot waste time in making inventories that are not necessary, since the cost of personnel time must be taken into account. And not doing it as often as needed can cause us not to realize a need to add stock, renew products or others.
