Thus every measure needs to be taken to enhance productive efforts and to minimize wastes. One such area which may be extremely crucial is effective inventory control. Inventories are vital for the existence of an enterprise and also for its competitive edge. A well planned inventory will ensure optimum usage of raw materials, high turnover ratio, less storage time and effective utilization of working capital.
