This session moves beyond the very basics of inventory in general and starts to delve into proper inventory management. This course is designed to give you tools to make ordering easier, more efficient, and effective. We will discuss professional shopping, allocation of effort, and managerial tacticstowards supply operations. Attendees should know what their Cost of Goods Sold is, as a total expense and as a percentage of revenue. They should also know what items make up their “top 20” (this information will not be shared). This program is intended to help those with a basic operating knowledge of supply management improve and take their operations to the next level.
