INVENTORY CONTROL DECISIONS

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. Inventory control is the study including `Material Management' and the associated costs in such a way that the total cost is kept minimum for a given investment.
