  How much inventory do I need? How much will it cost? How accurate is it?

Develop your skills

In this 1-Day session we look at how to implement a quick and easy approach to balancing inventories using a simulation approach adjusting safety stock “triggers” and batch sizes. The software is yours to take home and use

It is also appropriate for anyone involved in stock record accuracy who would like to eliminate the need for repetitive physical stocktakes

Various techniques will be covered including the Four Step approach to achieving accuracy through Cycle Counting and using more efficient approaches than the old “ABC” methodology.

WORKSHOP CONTENT
Topics covered in this workshop will include:

  1. Why inventory records must be accurate – covering the ‘why’ of accurate processes, particularly with end-to-end software systems
  2. Assuring record accuracy – keeping the system lean mean and above all accurate
  3. How to design the inventory process—covering process   mapping and which situations need it, and why
  4. Cycle Counting – cycle counting versus physicals; popular methods, procedures and     organisation, plus how to conduct one last accurate   physical stocktake
  5. The Four Step approach to record accuracy – a straightforward, proven and practical methodology used by thousands of organisations around the world
  6. Measuring Accuracy – How to enable accurate, effective and efficient measurement processes on a daily basis. Popular items from the Lean tool box will also be covered
  7. Rebalance safety stocks and batch sizes with Spreadsheets – using spreadsheets and scenario simulations to develop an approach to rebalancing safety stock triggers and reducing overall average inventories
