The bar is set high for inventory control professionals--and well-ordered stock rooms and records are just the beginning.

Track inventory costs - Read balance sheets - Calculate gross profit - Set up a locator system - Weigh pros and cons of bar codes and RFID - Factor in replenishment costs - Decide when to get rid of dead stock - Pinpoint system dysfunctions - Mitigate risks in the supply chain - And much more.

New chapters in the third edition explain how to purchase inventory, pick the best location for a distribution center, and establish safety precautions for handling inventory.

Maintaining physical spaces and databases are only part of your responsibilities. From forecasting to troubleshooting to the fundamentals of finance, this book gives you the tools to optimize efficiency--and drive profits.
