    INTRODUCTION:Inventory Management is the planning, control, organizing and leading the

    goods and materials required by thebusiness. Inventory Management is veryimportant for the business. It enables the business to meet or exceed expectations

    of the customer by making the product readily available. If managed properly, it

    can help the organization reduce its costs, achieve economies of scale and prepares

    the organization for uncertainty.

    Inventory management is primarily about specifying the size and placement

    of stocked goods. Inventory management is required at different locations within a

    facility or within multiple locations of a supply network to protect the regular and

    planned course of production against the random disturbance of running out of

    materials or goods. The scope of inventory management also concerns the fine

    lines between replenishment lead time, carrying costs of inventory, asset

    management, inventory forecasting, inventory valuation, inventory visibility,

    future inventory price forecasting, physical inventory, available physical space for

    inventory, quality management, replenishment, returns and defective goods and

    demand forecasting.

    Inventory management is a very simple concept - don't have too much stock

    and don't have too little. Since there can be substantial costs involved in straying

    above and below the optimal range, careful inventory management can make a

    huge difference in the profitability of a business. Although the concept is simple,

    the process of getting the right balance can be quite a complex and time consuming

    task without the right technology.

    Time - The time lags present in the supply chain, from supplier to user at

    every stage, requires that you maintain certain amount of inventory to use in

    this "lead time"

    Uncertainty - Inventories are maintained as buffers to meet uncertainties in

    demand, supply and movements of goods.

    Economies of scale - Ideal condition of "one unit at a time at a place where

    user needs it, when he needs it" principle tends to incur lots of costs in terms

    of logistics. So bulk buying, movement and storing brings in economies of

    scale, thus inventory.


    To ensure that the supply of raw material & finished goods will remain

    continuous so that production process is not halted and demands of

    customers are duly met.

    To maintain inventory at appropriate level so that it is neither excessive

    nor short of requirement.

    To keep inventory at sufficiently high level to perform production and

    sales activities smoothly.

    To minimize investment in inventory at minimum level to maximize


    To minimize carrying cost & ordering costs of inventory. To keep investment in inventory at optimum level.
