Inventory refers to the stock of materials, supplies, spare parts, and other inputs that are necessary to support operations. These items are normally carried on stock (i.e., available on hand whenever needed). Inventory Planning and Control is a branch of materials management that ensures that users will have the inputs with the appropriate quality in the right quantity at the right place at the time when they are needed. The other two branches are Procurement and Warehouse Management.

Any shortage of an input at the time of need is disruptive. Production or service operations will stop, and customers’ expectations will not be served. On the other hand, stocking on inventory consumes working capital and can be very expensive in terms of tied-up capital, storage costs, insurance, security, etc. There is a need to strike a balance that will optimize stock availability at the least possible cost.

This course will deal with various techniques to achieve such a balance. It will highlight the potential application of modern technological approaches to achieve that balance.
