|Cycle Counting for Record Accuracy
|Page Updated Saturday, July 15, 2006
This focused interactive workshop
will provide participants with the tools and techniques necessary
to achieve and thereafter maintain 98% inventory accuracy
throughout the entire plant and distribution supply chain.
Poor inventory record accuracy can
result in increased costs and related problems associated with:
- Increased levels of excess
and obsolete inventory.
- Higher levels of safety
- Increased transportation
costs due to expediting and premium freight charges.
- Reduced production efficiency
and risk of shut-down.
- Creating a barrier to
successful implementation of Agile or Lean Manufacturing
processes, MRP or ERP implementations.
- Staging items for production
to visually confirm component availability.
- Incorrect data used to drive
inventory replenishments systems (MRP, ROP).
- Unreliable ATP information
for service representatives.
- Necessity to conduct
- Reduced customer service.
- Low inventory turns.
- Time sensitive product
deterioration (shelf-life expiration).
- Improper focus of resources.
- Loss of proper cost control.
Though the solutions are
relatively simple, inexpensive, easy to learn and apply, the cost
reduction and avoidance as well as the revenue generating (sales)
opportunities resulting from disciplined application of cycle
counting techniques are tremendous.
Why not take advantage of simple,
inexpensive solutions that are easy to learn. Develop and apply
disciplined applications that will provide cost reduction and
avoidance along with revenue generating opportunities. Observe
the challenges and successes of other organizations in
eliminating the waste of unneeded inventory with a cycle counting
program. Walk away with a plan that will work!
This workshop will be
especially helpful for Material Managers,
Warehouse/Distribution Managers, Production Managers, Purchasing
Managers, Stock Room supervisors, Production Supervisors, Cycle
counters, Cycle Count Auditors, Inventory/Asset Accountants,
Master Production Schedulers, Planners, Stockroom Supervisors,
Consultants, Supply Analysts, Planners/Buyers, Production
Supervisors, Inventory Asset Managers. The program is recommended
for anyone currently working with and those considering
implementation of or improvement to their inventory accuracy
levels via proven cycle counting program methods.
