  • Managing the inventory in your warehouse
    By Ken Ackerman
    There is a difference between inventory management and inventory control. Every warehouse manager is responsible for control, which means that the physical inventory matches the book, and the status reports are always accurate. Inventory management the process of deciding how much of each SKU should be placed in the warehouse. When certain items have stayed in the warehouse for years, and others are frequently out of stock, these are signs that inventory management is inadequate.
