Online Workshop on 'Inventory Management & Control' 23 – 24 September 2022: 02.00pm to 06.00pm

Context Setting

Regardless of the size of the company, having a proper inventory management system is of prime importance for any business. Inventory counts are an important check and balance that ensures records are accurate. But without the right tools in place, they are often time consuming, expensive and labour intensive. DSO (Days outstanding) with customers at 90 days and DPO (Days paid out to suppliers) at 45 days results in cash flow difficulty. Manufacturers are compelled to undergo strict cost cutting methodologies to boost their EBITA (Earnings Before Interest Tax and Amortisation). Controlling cost through inventory management, OSMI (Obsolete Slow-Moving Inventory) is critical to avoid loss in financial statement and smooth cash flow cycle. 

This workshop has been designed with special focus on controlling inventory throughout the product cycle from order processing to cash using appropriate tools and techniques.
