Improving Inventory Accuracy

Whether your company is in a manufacturing or a service environment you have a common challenge – inventory accuracy. Operational decisions to make such as those about fulfilling customer demand, when to order a resupply (and how many to order) or how many items to manufacture all rely on accurate inventory quantity information. Many organizations spend large amounts of time, effort and money on conducting periodic inventory counts in an attempt to obtain accurate inventory data only to find that within a short period of time after such a periodic count, information about how much inventory is in stock is no longer accurate and another full inventory count (and associated costs) needs to be conducted in an attempt to once again bring inventory information up to the desired level of confidence.

Join us on Wednesday November 22nd as Richard Ranftl, a member of BCIT’s Business Operations Management Faculty, will:

  • Walk us through the flaw inherent in conducting periodic inventory counts
  • Show us how to improve physical inventory count accuracy
  • Help us understand the benefits available to organizations that adopt Inventory Cycle Counting
  • Show us how to get started on developing Cycle Counting for improving inventory accuracy (and operational decision making)

This session will be especially valuable to anyone who has to deal with the stress of attempting to explain to “The Boss” why the year-end inventory count accuracy is so low, every year, over and over again, endlessly.
