October 23, PDM - Inventory Stratification Optimizes Results with Katherine Olsen, CPIM, CSCP, & Gurram Gopal, Ph.D.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT MEETING - If you are a Supply Chain manager or senior Supply Chain executive working toward improved inventory control, what is happening to the costs associated with inventory management - and, importantly, are those efforts toward inventory optimization really optimal in terms of inventory performance results? Based on their study at Castle Metals, as documented in the April 2018 issue of APICS Magazine, our October presenters will illustrate the application of the Analytical Hierarchy Process to effect inventory improvement. This event will be held at the Fountain Blue Restaurant in Des Plaines.
