Program Synopsis

Most companies battle the age-old conflict of providing high customer service levels while maintaining acceptable inventory balances.  Why do so many companies struggle with excess inventory?  It is usually a combination of competing company priorities, ill-defined inventory policies and company cultures that resist change.  Reducing inventory is challenging, but not out of your control.  The journey to reducing inventory begins with mastering a few basic supply chain concepts.  
Join us for this month’s Professional Development Meeting as we discuss five techniques you can use to get started this week to reduce inventory.  We will discuss topics including goal setting and performance measures, safety stock strategy, identifying and eliminating forecast bias, inventory stocking strategy and increasing replenishment velocity.  This session is designed to provide you with a roadmap – you can use it to start a project; jumpstart a stalled effort; re-evaluate your strategy and processes; and share what has worked at your organization.  As they say, sometimes the first step is the hardest.
