Inventory Planning  ​

Because inventory planning involves the determination of inventory quantities, timing, and alignment with production capacity and sales volume, it’s a critical business process which directly impacts your company's cash-flow and profitability​

Effective inventory planning is key to profitability as inventory velocity turns assets into profits. The faster inventory turns, the greater the profitability.
