Businesses spend an average of 25% to 35% of their budget on inventory costs. This means that poorly optimized inventory management can get quite costly.
Typically, high inventory management costs come from buying either too much or too little products.
In this article, we discuss four costs of poorly optimized inventory management:
If a facility manager often overspends and poorly manages inventory, then they might face extra carrying costs. Carrying costs are defined as how much it costs to keep inventory on hand, and they may come in the form of storage space, insurance, operational costs, salaries, and even taxes.
MRO inventory frequently includes spare parts. While it’s good to have extra parts on hand, those can increase inventory carrying costs. As such, it’s important to streamline your spare parts inventory.
Overbuying on inventory leads to losses, both in terms of carrying costs as well as markdowns. In order to eliminate excess inventory, markdowns are frequently necessary for retailers.
Poor MRO inventory management leads to increased downtime costs in that parts either run out or simply become difficult to find.
Unplanned downtime could cost up to $260,000 per hour.Delays resulting from an item being out of stock could also lead to lost customers. How can I optimize my inventory management?In one of the studies we referenced, about 86% of retailers knew specific ways in which advanced analytics could help them cut inventory management costs.Ultimately, it all comes down to knowing exactly how much of each item you need, how much of it you currently have, and how quickly you can find it. IoT solutions and inventory management software can both help you keep on top of those items.
