Warehouse Inventory Optimisation

Inventory optimisation is about having the right stock in the right place at the right time.

Many businesses struggle to balance the need to maintain high stock availability while operating within working capital and space constraints.

Product range proliferation, multiple stocking points, and long lead times for imported goods make this a complex task. Analysis of the status quo reveals frequent stock outs amongst popular products, while the ‘long tail’ of SKUs may have 12 months+ of stock cover.

At SCCG we tackle many inventory optimisation projects, either as part of a wider logistics strategy review, or as a standalone performance improvement initiative.  The result is a clear understanding of what inventory is required to support sales cost-effectively, and the steps required to achieve this delicate balance.

Gain Valuable Inventory Insight

Analysis of current and historical stock levels against demand data yields valuable insights into inventory profile issues.  We go beyond the narrow financial focus on stock value and examine which products are tying up warehouse capacity, while others are the source of poor availability and customer service issues.  We reveal the underlying causes of poor performance, allowing these to be addressed.

Make the Right Decisions for you and your Customers

We help you to define high-level and SKU level inventory policy, understanding the trade-offs between unit-cost and minimum order quantity-based decisions versus the downstream impacts on space, working capital and service levels.  We model, for example, single versus multiple stocking points with daily replenishment.  We help implement recommendations through actions such as implementing improved  demand planning, forecasting and buying processes.
