Reduce Inventory While Preventing Shortages With These 5 Rules

When manufacturers talk about inventory turnover, they’re referring to how quickly their company can process the parts inventory in its warehouse. Most track it by turnover ratio, which equals the cost of goods sold (COGS) divided by inventory.
