Abstract

Goods-producing companies hold inventory to fulfill orders or in anticipation of customer demand. Indeed, inventory is reported as an asset on the balance sheet, so a company’s executives may approve holding high inventory levels in order to meet its obligations. However, in a challenging business environment where products are frequently discounted or discontinued, holding inventory has become increasingly detrimental to operational performance.
