1) List some products in your personal or family "inventory." How do you manage them? (For instance, do you constantly run to the store for milk? Do you throw out a lot of milk because of spoilage?) How might the ideas in Chapter 12 change your way of managing these SKUs?
Inventories are physical goods used in operations and include raw materials, parts, sub-assemblies, supplies, tools, equipment or maintenance, and repair items.

I normally schedule orders based on upcoming career fairs/expos/etc. My first expo I extinguished my inventory or business cards fairly quickly. Everyone loved the aesthetic, which resulted in many new clientele. The next expo I came better prepared, using lessons-learned from the previous.
The ideas of managing my “SKUs” has not changed much based on Chapter 12’s readings. It certainly reinforced some of the
