Course Overview

Stock Control, otherwise known as Inventory Control, is used to show how much stock you have at any one time and how you keep track of it. It applies to every item you use to produce a product or service, from raw materials to finished goods. It covers stock at every stage of the production process, from purchase and delivery to using and re-ordering the stock.

Efficient stock control allows you to have the right amount of stock in the right place at the right time. It ensures that capital is tied up appropriately and protects production if problems arise with the supply chain. You can categorise stock further, according to its value, and choose to concentrate resources on the areas of greatest value.

The participants attending this Inventory & Stock Control Management training course will learn several methods for controlling stock, all designed to provide an efficient system for deciding what, when and how much to order. They will also understand the importance of Inventory management in general as well as several key components, like logistics, stock control and physical distribution, unique for different businesses, to obtain the knowledge and skills to be able to plan, organise, execute, and control the organisation of effective Inventory management.
