What is Inventory Control?
Inventory control involves regulating and maximizing your company’s use of inventory. The goal of inventory control is to generate the maximum profit from the least amount of inventory investment without intruding upon customer satisfaction levels. Inventory control is one of the chief concerns of businesses that have large inventory investments because of the impact it has on customers and profits.
What is Inventory Management?
Inventory management is the process of efficiently overseeing the constant flow of units into and out of the existing inventory. This means controlling the transfer in of units to prevent inventory from becoming too high, or dwindling to levels that could put the operation of the company into jeopardy. Balancing the inventory unit levels, as well as the other various tasks of inventory management means paying attention the three key aspects of inventory:
- Time – knowing how long it takes for a supplier to process an order and execute a delivery, as well as knowing how long it will take for those materials to transfer out of the inventory.
- Buffer stock – keeping units of stock that are above and beyond the minimum number required to maintain production levels in case of an emergency.
- Records – accurately maintaining figures on finished goods inventory makes it possible to quickly convey information as to what is available and ready for shipment at any given time.
