Effective Purchase, Inventory and Warehouse Management

Purchase Managment


Effective purchasing is important for any enterprise – manufacturing or service, public or private.  Over the last few decades, the nature of this function has radically changed from just “negotiating with vendors and buying cheap” to one of “strategic importance” in the supply chain.  In the manufacturing sector, the cost of materials is often 55-70% of the product cost, and the quality of the finished product is heavily dependent upon the quality of material purchased. Hence the impact of the Purchase function on cash flow and profitability is very high. All this has placed new demands on position and role of the procurement function.

In the current economic climate inventory is more important than ever.  With slowing activity, inventory decisions that result in excess inventory will take much longer to correct and the working capital that is tied up hurts even more when capital is hard to come by. Improve inventory turns, lower operating costs and enhance customer satisfaction.

The program will help you strengthen the performance of your Vendor base by enabling them to acquire the skills and capacities to raise the product quality, on-time delivery, reduce the working capital besides cost competiveness.
