|LACK OF SPACE OR EXCESS OF GOODS|
|Articles - Logistics strategies|
In some cases, managers realize or are aware of how much inventory they have when they go to the wineries, and not have reports on their desks.
A natural reaction but not a lot of rational people when they see a warehouse full is: "this does not fit here," which creates the feeling is that you need more space. But this statement must be very careful because you may what is happening is that they are planning evil, and this poor planning is generating excess inventory.
Saying that more space is the easiest solution but it is very expensive. But it is important to clarify that this does not mean that all problems of saturation of the winery is poor planning, which means it must first be ruled out that a planning problem and if there is not, then if you think in a storage expansion.
A common reason why companies have inventory problems saturation is a poor prognosis or in worst case why not make predictions. Another common reason is it is not used or known the benefits of inventory control models.
So the recommendation is to first make a review of the planning and scheduling supply chain and then if you look at whether the space is sufficient.
