About the Course

Inventory is a current asset to a firm; carrying inventory comes with a definite level of risk; this risk is a component of the cost of maintaining inventory. While a company stocks items in the warehouse, there is a constant risk of dropping actual value during the storage phase. Suppose a company stored parts for their work centre or equipment. In that case, the elements in the warehouse could be worth far less than the price initially paid. Any losses, excess, obsolete, and mismanaged inventory means a decrease in the company's equity. Once the companies are looking to reduce expenses, a great many times, they disregard the inventory sitting in their warehouses and the cost of moving that inventory.

This Inventory & Stock Control Management training course emphasizes the tools and techniques when the organisation is looking to reduce costs. They sometimes ignore the inventory sitting in their warehouses and the cost of carrying that inventory. It is vital for businesses to cautiously scrutinise all the costs of maintaining inventory and resolve where they can make modifications to reduce that cost and assist with their bottom line.
