Manufacturing Inventory management Information and links

Manufacturing inventory management is the process of tracking the inventory of products and goods in multiple stages of production. It involves monitoring the inventory of raw materials, work-in-progress (WIP), and finished goods. Effective manufacturing inventory management can help reduce production costs, streamline operations, and improve customer satisfaction.

It is important for businesses to plan and utilize an inventory management system because manufacturing inventory management directly affects the production of goods and, in effect, the supply chain. Establishing an effective manufacturing inventory management system can help businesses properly forecast inventory levels, thus, consistently meeting customer demand and expectations.

In this light, we have put together a number of resources to help manufacturers and other producers to more effectively understand what’s needed to efficiently manage their inventory.
