Getting The Right Inventory Manager

A wide variety of training is available these days for those who wish to specialize in inventory management practices. The concepts that may seem very mathematical at first all support the ideas of supply-and-demand as well as incorporating the concept of the warehouse or storeroom as an evolving entity.

As for managers or owners selecting an employee to take on the task, it should be mentioned that qualified individuals can be hired with their training already in place, who come in and establish all the best practices after their analysis of the conditions that exist. No matter the source of your “Stock Master”, never just choose the person who is willing to do it. If you choose the option to promote from within, give the inventory tasks to several within your organization and you’ll soon discover which person has the natural talent. The ones with ideas for improvement and the ability to both voice and implement the ideas are a valued asset to your company. Don’t waste people where they will not excel — put the best people into every department if you truly wish to succeed. Once in place, your Stock Master must be introduced to your staff as that department head, and must be given an important place on an identical level with the others.

Companies that compete in the modern marketplace cannot have any aspects of their inventory management be considered — or actually be — vague or imprecise. The task of stock coordination must fall to someone who is prepared to do it and make sure that others observe the established in-house rules for its management. Most of inventory planning is merely the application of common sense and accurate arithmetic, and these responsibilities must be assigned to a specific individual who will take the duties seriously. Whomever the person is, they can literally be the savior of your bottom line.

For the best inventory management, SIMMS 2014 Inventory Management software will serve perfectly as the tool the master needs.

Stock Personnel

Practical stock management requires a versatile inventory plan and standards of practice must be established and then observed. The hands-on work with stock and the use of the tracking software must be coordinated and both types of personnel understand the principles of managing inventory. They all must become inoculated with the same theory and keep the same goal in mind. Then and only then can the current system produce its best results.

The Supply Officer is responsible for the physical inventory of materials and equipment in the stock department. In addition to providing advice and assistance to other departments when the physical inventory is being conducted, the Supply Officer also looks to practices such as stock count reconciliation, count scheduling and quality assurance. All personnel on the team are deployed by the Supply Officer; these Custodians must be qualified and informed about the system currently in effect. Specialty stock (so designated because of their high value or other intrinsic value, like precious metals, pharmaceuticals or classified status) are usually assigned to be checked by Specialists.

The structure and details of the system implemented must consider the physical layout of the warehouse, the throughput of stock and its handling procedures and the repairs/returns process. The logistics of stock handling, the facility of conducting the physical counts easily and efficiently, and the methods employed to coordinate overflow/underflow procedure also are important concerns to be addressed in the plans for system improvement.
