Excellent Inventory Management
…let’s finally get it right

Your company has processes and procedures in place to maintain accurate inventory records. Yet most of the chaos in your factory results from inaccurate inventory.

Software alone cannot manage your inventory. Inventory will serve your sales and financial goals only when it is managed by individuals who understand the foundation of inventory accuracy and basic issues that are typically mismanaged or unmanaged.

This all-day seminar addresses the foundational and basic elements of inventory accuracy often taken for granted; less often controlled. It will also provide insights into peripheral processes that are particularly error prone…engineering changes and consignment inventory.

Those who attend will come away understanding that maintaining accurate inventory requires manufacturers to put certain disciplines in place and have the courage to hold the appropriate people accountable.

Let’s finally get it right.

Instructor Randall Schaefer, CPIM is an international speaker, writer, and one of APICS’ “go-to” guys on engineering changes, obsolescence and general inventory management. He has a degree in philosophy, began his career as a blue-collar worker, proceeded thru lower, middle and upper management jobs and ended as an in-demand consultant. He has worked and consulted in industries as diverse as automotive, pharmaceuticals, farm machinery, capital equipment, vehicle chassis, solar power panels, oil drilling, and consumer products.

$310/members and $350/non-members; includes: seminar, materials, refreshments, and a box lunch. Gluten-free menu available upon request.
