Consulting for inventory management - sustainable improvement of inventories through inventory optimization and inventory controlling
With the change from producer to consumer market, the demands on logistics have changed considerably. So it is not only necessary to bridge space and time, but also to meet the high customer requirements.
In practice, however, meeting these requirements is often associated with high costs in your supply chain. High stocks are often held in order to absorb the uncertainties of forecasts.
Although these relax the delivery situation a little, in practice they lead to costly outsourcing (variable costs) or warehouse expansion projects (fixed costs). With every additional location/loading point, not only the administrative costs (coordination of transport service providers, inventories and locations) increase, but also the demands on inventory management.
Poor or missing inventory management thus not only causes capital commitment costs, but also a variety of cost drivers that are not apparent at first glance.
