Inventory Management Challenges Continue

from scdigest.com

In early 2006, we took a look at the past several years of data from the annual CFO magazine working capital report. That data showed a continuing upward pressure on inventory levels, despite the great focus on supply chain management improvements in most companies.

This year’s report, summarizing data from 2006, is out earlier this year, and I don’t know if they saw what we did with their data, but for the first time it includes information from multiple years (2004 through 2006), making analysis about trends and performance by industry and individual company much easier.
