Inventories play a major role in the economy and businesses. From the firm’s view point, inventories represent an investment in capital; capital is required to store materials at any stage of completion. Thus the proper balance must be struck to maintain proper inventory level with the minimum financial impact to the organization.
Inventory management, or inventory control, is an attempt to balance inventory needs and requirements with the need to minimize costs resulting from obtaining and holding inventory. Inventory may be kept “in-house,” meaning on the premises or nearby for immediate use; or it may be held in a distant warehouse or distribution center for future use. With the exception of firms utilizing just-in-time methods, more often than not, the term “inventory” implies a stored quantity of goods that exceeds what is needed for the firm to function at the current time
