Two Days Workshop on Inventory Management

Venue: Hotel Mirador, Andheri East, Mumbai


Inventory can be millstone or a source of competitive advantage for firms. Excess materials as well as stock-outs are both an equal problem. With the continuous shrinking of lead times and the ever increasing customer demand, maintaining the right amount of inventory has become a challenge by itself. The key for firms would be to manage the delicate balance between too much and too little. The two day program has been designed to help organizations manage inventory in this dynamic industry situation.

The new dimension of space (location) has been added to the elements of timing and quantity in the inventory management domain. It is important to be able to create a policy on ‘where’ to hold inventory besides the traditional decisions of when and how much. Also important is to have a sound knowledge of the standard global practices so that firms can take maximum advantage of the existing software products. This program will precisely deliver solutions for these very pertinent problems facing industries.

ISCM will follow active learning concept – where faculty lead participants through the theoretical frameworks using case studies and thought provoking discussions. Participants will share their own challenges and opportunities. The class will then link these frameworks to their real life challenges. As a rule, each day will consist of grounding on the theoretical concepts led by the instructor and discussion, including cases and news articles relevant to the matter discussed.
