Inventory Speaks!

Is anyone Listening?

Inventory records hold a wealth of information about a manufacturing or distribution operations. They can provide valuable insights into operations, strategy, systems and supply chains. All from readily available and simple data. Our new article, "Inventory Speaks!" shows how to tap this data and interpret the language of inventory.

An inventory analysis seldom, by itself, defines the problems and reveals solutions. Rather, it points the way to further investigation. It leads to "leverage points" where small improvements often bring large results. It is an essential, early task for:

  • Lean Implementations

  • Manufacturing Strategy Development

  • Layout & Facility Planning

  • Warehouse Planning & Design

  • Process Improvement

  • Financial Strategy Development

Please take a look at "Inventory Speaks!. Inventory has an important story to tell. Are you listening?
