Setting the Right Inventory Level

Workshop Date: 2020-04-23

Five years ago, a big multinational firm embarked on an Inventory Reduction initiative to reduce working capital and fund their acquisitions. At year-end, inventory targets were achieved. However, sales were severely lower versus goals due to product stock-outs — profits were modest, and it forced the company not to declare dividends. The next question, then, at the start of the year is: what is the right inventory level to support sales while meeting working capital targets?
