It’s Time to Improve Our Inventory Accuracy

In follow-up to the November 22nd dinner meeting outlining the benefits of transitioning periodic inventory counts to much more accurate Cycle Counts, Richard Ranftl, a member of BCIT’s Business Operations Management Faculty, will:

  • Review the benefits of moving to Cycle Counting from the flawed traditional Periodic Inventory counts many of us are still doing
  • Provide us with “Management Education Packets” to enable us to convince the decision makers of our companies to finally approve the transition to cycle counting
  • Show us how to analyze our inventory and then develop Cycle Counting systems appropriate for our organizations
  • Give us the tools needed to train our Cycle Counting Personnel
  • Provide us with the tools needed to manage our new Cycle Counting systems by walking through a simulation of cycle counting using actual test-company data
  • Provide us with take-away Cycle Counting training aids and spreadsheets we can use to implement cycle counting in our companies

It is encouraged that companies send personnel to this workshop who “feel the pain” (those who are tasked with having to continually recount inventory over and over again in order to try and have accurate inventory status information available for decision making).
