Financial Impact of Inventory

I have been researching the financial impact of inventory and I have to say I have found a few chapters and brief articles, but nothing of substance. I have looked into "Factory Physics" and "All I Need to Know About Manufacturing I Learned in Joe's Garage", as well as a few case studies (too industry specific) and some articles. All of them seem to be a good base, but not a great explaination or a thorough study.

Does anyone know of a good publication that covers this topic in detail? Any help is appreciated.

Re: Financial Impact of Inventory

Haha well it was interesting. I have to say it is a great book to get down the basics of manufacturing, but it fails to provide any high level information.

So if you are in the manufacturing field it would probably be a bit of a bore.

Kai, I got a good site where you can find answers exactly matching your questions. Just google it with key words "Supply Chain Management and ERP Notes" and see the first site. I searched within the site with inventory optimization key word and found quite relevant information. Go get it!

Re: Financial Impact of Inventory

Thanks for the tip. I read over the article and it does a great job of outlining key drivers effecting inventory. However, I am more looking at the financial impact of inventory, obsolescence, etc. More of a look at what it does to the bottom line if we panic buy, or there is too much WIP, that kind of thing.

That's quite an information it is, Based on what I had experience on inventory it does make a big difference especially in times where you need to have thorough evaluation and checking all financial assets of the business.
