Every item needs to be designed, spec'd and controlled to ensure that it is fit-to-purpose, cost effective to procure or manufacture and easy to use. The number 1 rule here is to standardize where possible.
This process happens every time an item needs to be re-ordered (consumables). Often this is crisis management because you have run out of the item. Someone took the last one and didn’t say anything.
Is 100% stock accuracy, 100% of the time a realistic standard and expectation? It is when ItemControl handles the warehousing of your bulk stock and the distribution thereof to all your branches.
How is this item used and what does that cost? Ensuring you are never under or over stocked and that you never run out of stock. How does usage and the cost thereof compare to budget?
Thanks again for a job well done!!!!!!!
