Inventory management definitions

Inventory management -it is policies, procedures, and techniques employed in maintaining the optimum number or amount of each inventory item. The objective of inventory management is to provide uninterrupted production, sales, and/or customer-service levels at the minimum cost. Since, for many firms, inventory is the largest item in the current assets category, inventory problems can and do contribute to losses or even business failures.
