Factories, workshops, engineering departments handle raw materials used in the manufacture of products. The main objectives in handling these materials are:

1. Maximum customer's service
2. Minimum possible investment on materials, handling costs etc.
3. Avoid shortages as far as possible so that production is not stopped or customer's goodwill is not lost.

Some of these objectives are basically in conflict and require a scientific approach to get an optimal solution in order to earn maximum profit for a given investment.
