Stock taking and stock management

Stock taking and stock management as a part of the material management are the connecting element between customer sales management, production planning and control and the purchase department.

Serial production process manufacturing highly depends on a sophisticated stock management, while the individual manufacturer might not depend on it as much, but as requirements for lean management methods are getting more important, the importance of a sophisticated stock management is getting more important as well.
