What actions would you take if you found that you are actually carrying too much inventory?

2 Answers

I would consider 1- Looking at demand patterns at other sites/regions and looking at moving inventory 2- Working with pricing team to offer discounts to drive demand 3 - Add it as a kit with another item and sell it 4 - Scrap it

Firstly, I would evaluate whether there’s a seasonality. (e,g, Prior to black Friday, we may encounter decrease in demand because people don’t buy until it’s black Friday. If there’s no seasonality issues - Short-term solutions : From demand aspect Increase demand by 1. Bundling 2. Discount (coordination with Pricing / Marketing team) From supply aspect : a. For non-perishable products that have salvage value – Return to supplier b. For perishable products – Resell it to bakeries or scrap them Long-term solution : Adjust the demand forecast model (increase forecast accuracy) Adjust inventory model (decrease safety stock)
