An organization holds the stock in limited quantity for the future purpose to use it properly, when it is required and running all the operations in a continuous flow. To maintain this operation properly an organization has different inventory control models in inventory management. In this paper we have discussed about the inventory models which are beneficial to take decision about the stock for an organization time to time to avoid the problem arises. The deterministic model and the probabilistic model are the two main models in inventory management. In general, demand is not known that model is called probabilistic model and the demand is constant at a fixed interval that model is called as deterministic model.
See Appendix A, Figure II – Three Pillars of Inventory. 1. Inventory planning – This is basically determining the optimum levels of inventory for both today and the future (Relph, 2015). When there is proper inventory planning, an organisation will be able to recognise their inventory levels and can see what items are in more demand than the other. For example, once an organisation utilizes the three pillars of inventory, as for the inventory planning aspect, they will be able to know how much and what items are needed for the store and also which items are more in demand than others, in order to always have a smooth running business with satisfied
1. Introduction 1.1. Inventory Management By definition, inventory is the list of products that a particular company offers to its customers. On the other hand, inventory management is the procedures, the policies, and the techniques deployed by such a company in availing and maintaining an optimum number of each of the items it provides to its customers (Tamegawa 665). Correspondingly, for different businesses the activities that ensure that an optimum number of products are availed such as ordering procedures, shipping, cargo handling, and the relating expenses and costs, all fall under inventory management.

Price elasticity of demand is a term in economics often used when discussing price sensitivity. The formula for calculating price elasticity of demand is: Price Elasticity of Demand = % Change in Quantity Demanded / % Change in Price Measurement of Price Elasticity of Demand There are three methods for measuring elasticity of demand. Outlay method Point method Arc Method Total Outlay Method Total outlay method, also known as total expenditure method of measuring price elasticity of demand was developed by Professor Alfred Marshall. According
Inventory management performs a significant function in maintaining specific operating requirements for a business (Stewart, 1997). Inventory involves taking stocks for a business to sustain its operation and meet consumer demands. It is considered as one of the most valuable assets because the turnover of inventory represents the primary sources of income and earnings for the company (Shue, Chen, & Shiue, 2009). Maintaining a specific level of inventory is vital because high level inventory and stock out significantly affects the profitability of the business. Possessing high level of inventory for a long period of time tends to increase operating cost due to inventory storage, dead stocks or items that are not selling, and spoilage costs of perishable items.On the other hand, stock out or failure to maintain adequate amount of product supply affects customer satisfaction which might lead to disappointments of potential customers and opportunity to lost
As per research today’s uncertainities in economy, companies are searching for alternative ways to remain stable in market. This study goes through the process of analyzing the company’s current forecasting model and recommending an inventory control model by ordering optimum units to help them solve their current issue. As a result, an Economic Order Quantity (EOQ) and a variable cost was recommended to help them reduce their product stock outs. The shortage of raw material for production always makes the process discontinuous and reduces the productivity. The ABC analysis technique for the inventory control system is first used to identify the most important multiple products and then the economic order quantity (EOQ) of each product is
An inventory control system is necessary. There are two types of inventory systems that is, ordering a fixed quantity or ordering at fixed period of times. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. i)Fixed Order Quantity Fixed order quantity is also known as continuous inventory system or perpetual system. In this, an order of fixed quantity is placed whenever inventory level goes below a certain level.
In accordance to this, firstly we tested for autocorrelation and based our estimation on a model without autocorrelation. Hence, we conclude that there is a long run relationship between the money demand and the variables we used (interest rate, price level, income and the lagged variable of money demand) meaning that we can not say there is a stable money demand function for Turkey. We found that money demand is positively related with income, price level and the previous year’s money demand, negatively related with the interest rate. REFERENCES B. Klos, E.

Theory of Constraints and Supply Chain Management Name Institution Abstract The theory of constraints presents an important tool through which modern managers can improve organizational processes and increase profits. The theory views constraints within an organization’s systems as opportunities for improvement rather than obstacles to success. First introduced by Eliyahu Goldratt in his novel The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement, the theory has been used widely in the mainstream management field. However, the theory has not been widely applied in supply chain management despite its range of benefits in this field. The theory allows for practical and effective information management in supply chains while promoting global inspiration to collaborate among workers from diverse geographic backgrounds.
