The Impact of Inventory

​Inventory Improvements Correlate to Better Financial Performance

It's no secret that improving inventory turns, increasing throughput, improving utlization, and improving cycle times are just a few areas where small improvements can yield huge financial returns. 

For example, industry analysts reports show that:

  • The average inventory level is 60 days across all manufacturing industries
  • For the typical company, 60 days of inventory represents 7% of revenue  (eg. $1B company that represents $70M in inventory)
  • One day in reduction in inventory = roughly $1M in working capital
