Integrated inventory management is a compelling approach that is driving many of the organizational changes in manufacturing today. This comprehensive manual covers the practical issues that must be dealt with when managing inventory. Author Paul Bernard, a systems manager for over 20 years and an active member of APICS, establishes the need for an inventory strategy that is integral to the business. Writing for practitioners, he provides a method for streamlining and connecting all aspects of inventory management, explaining how to implement projects, programs, and initiatives more effectively. Where other books on the subject address every aspect of inventory management as a stand-alone topic, Bernard describes each component in relation to all other aspects of the process, making inventory management more understandable from a practical perspective. Using his integral strategy concept, Bernard covers the translation of theory to practice throughout the book, with a heavy emphasis on tables, figures, and the unique inclusion of computer screens for illustration. Integrated Inventory Management is a thorough reference that offers even the most experienced professional a wealth of new information on the topic.
* Applicable to APICS' CIRM and CPIM certification questions.
* Provides actual company examples to illustrate the integral strategy.
