What does it mean if you have zero inventory?
Asked in Manufacturing
Is it possible to achieve zero inventories?
Some companies can. If you produce a standardized product, you maintain rigid production schedules and you have a very good supply chain, you can definitely achieve zero inventory. I run a job shop. I do a modified zero-inventory system. The things I use the most of, I keep a lot of inventory on hand. The things I rarely use are ordered as necessary.
