The Inventory Management certification track provides the details to effectively plan for and manage inventory levels to satisfy customer demands and maximize organizational profitability. Inventory management personnel focus on achieving a balance of sufficient supply to meet customer demand. Ineffective planning can result in insufficient inventory levels, resulting in lost sales or excessive inventory and financial write-offs of obsolete stock. This track also covers the importance and use of inventory in the supply chain; exposure to different types of inventory; techniques for effectively managing and controlling inventory levels; the relationship between forecasting and inventory management; and the financial impacts of inventory investments.
