Course Overview

Inventory Management and Warehouse Management are similar disciplines, as both aids in moving inventory from supplier to end consumer efficiently and effectively. Each involves storing, shipping and reordering stock. Inventory management is usually the first step in all the distribution processes that take place within the warehouse. Warehouse management is more connected to the other aspects of the entire management system. Integrated Inventory Management and Warehouse Management focus on the techniques when organisations are looking to reduce costs as, at times, they ignore the inventory sitting in their warehouses and the cost of carrying that inventory. Inventory Management is critical in operations as inventory is a current asset to a firm. Carrying inventory comes with a certain degree of risk, and this risk is a component of the cost of maintaining inventory. Regardless of the size of the company, having a proper inventory management system is very important for any business. It can help the participants keep track of all your supplies and determine the exact prices.
