For most organizations, inventory is the largest asset on the balance sheet, and minimizing inventory frees up money for use elsewhere in the organization. Materials management addresses techniques to manage inventory in such a way to allow processes or entities in the supply chain to operate interdependently. In this course, you will review the fundamental nature of inventory from a financial, physical, forecasting and operational standpoint. Topics include inventory classification; warehousing; matching supply with demand; tools and methods for managing inventory of items with different demand and supply characteristics; forecasting; just-in-time production; materials requirements planning; and supplier management.
