Course Overview

Days Inventory Outstanding is normally the metric associated with this area but because inventory can be a mixture of physical stock and subjective work in progress the metric has become outdated.

The financial supply chain in the inventory section is broken into two sections, one for stock and one for work in progress.

  • how to manage work in progress and stock in a proactive manner.
