Book Description

July 14 2003
"Most inventory professionals would gladly trade all the ""latest thinking"" books for a guide they could use to do their jobs better right now. Essentials of Inventory Management! presents ready-to-use information in key areas from physical control and layout to problem identification and resolution. Concentrating on daily-use inventory concepts, this practical workplace companion specifically addresses:

* Forecasting and replenishment strategies

* Differences between finished-goods (retail) inventories and materials or work-in-process (manufacturing) inventories.

* Materials requirements planning (MRP) and just-in-time (JIT) inventory systems

* Managing inventory as both a physical object and a monetary value

* Applying simple formulas to calculating quantities

* Analyzing and remedying dysfunction

Plus, the book covers theft prevention, legal obligations, and the managment of natural, technological, and incited emergencies. In all, it's the most thorough introduction available to the inventory management profession."

4.0 out of 5 stars Inventory Essentials April 10 2006
By A. Mock - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book lives up to its title. It is an easy to read introduction to inventory management. If you are new to the concept or are an empiric manager in the process of formalizing your education, this is a good start. Don't look for in depth information or case studies.

On the recommendations side, the author left the topic of safety and occupational health out of the book. It would be good to include this topic in the following edition.
