Inventory Management Is Part of This Balanced Breakfast

Want to make your inventory management system snap, crackle and pop? Try following the example of the Kellogg Company. The breakfast food-producing giant started using an inventory management system at least as early as the mid-1990s, according to a report entitled “The Kellogg Company Optimizes Production, Inventory, and Distribution.”

Milk pouring into cereal bowl, Fishbowl BlogKellogg uses a planning system “to find the best long-term, cost-minimizing, integrated production, inventory, and distribution plan.” This planning system has saved the company millions of dollars and helped it thrive through good economic conditions and bad.

Good planning and inventory management can help your company succeed. Bad inventory management can make your working capital disappear faster than you can say, “Leggo my Eggo!”

Food producers face a big challenge in dealing with time-sensitive products. All of their manufacturing processes depend on how much product they can move in a given amount of time. If they produce too much food, they run the risk of it passing its expiration date before it can be purchased by consumers.

Inventory software gives food producers they require to balance their inventory needs and manufacturing output. It helps in both the short term and long term. It gives food producers the tools they need to reduce expenses and be more efficient. By cutting down on wasted resources, you can save money that can be used for future investments in equipment and personnel.
