APICS is the world's leading association for supply chain management, providing education and certification programs.
Everyone in your company uses data based on Inventory information. From Engineering and Quality to Manufacturing and Accounting, all departments depend on accurate inventory information to make decisions about their future actions and plans. However, in the U.S. in 2004, the average inventory accuracy level for all manufacturing was 76.3%. The value of their inventories was misstated, but, the efficiency of every department in the company was impacted unfavorably by this failure.
In this One-day seminar we will learn how to measure inventory accuracy, how to improve the accuracy and how to keep it at a very high level. We have seen companies go from less than 65% to more than 98% in a year using the tools that we will discuss in this class.
