Basics of Inventory Management (March 7, 12:00-4:00pm)—To most organizations, inventory is one of the more visible and tangible aspects of doing business. Beginning with the management of suppliers delivering raw materials to goods in various levels of completion in the production process, and management and delivery of finished goods in the distributions channel, each type represents money tied up until the inventory becomes purchased products. The workshop provides a broad overview of basic concepts and good inventory management strategies.
Physical Inventory (March 14, 12:00-4:00pm)—This workshop will discuss what works and what doesn't as the participant learns the essential preparation steps and activities to perform in advance. These activities include everything from clean up and sorting to working with auditors. The best physical inventories require the best, most thorough, preparation.

From tracking of tags to weigh scales and facility maps to handling recounts, this course guides the way.
