Welcome to another installment of Fishbowl’s Whiteboard Wednesday where inventory management and manufacturing concepts are explained in easy-to-understand terms in just a few minutes.
Last time, Fishbowl CMO Kirk Tanner discussed how to optimize your safety stock, and this time James Shores, a fellow writer here at Fishbowl, explains the usefulness of work orders in managing everything that goes on in a manufacturing business.
Not knowing what inventory is in stock, where it’s located, or how many items are available is a major problem because it means employees have to guess and then spend time looking for parts when they could be spending that time on their primary jobs.
Work orders and a good inventory management solution help fix problems and save time in your operations. Learn more in this week’s Whiteboard Wednesday.
