Inventory optimization

Inventory optimization is the art of maintaining inventories at the right level to buffer the supply chain against peak demand and low supply – ensuring overall low inventory and high product availability. Stocks can be kept low when demand and supply are synchronized. Fluctuations in demand and supply can lead to stock-outs or excess inventory.
