Implementation Issues for Inventory Best Practices

This section describes the levels of implementation difficulty for each of the best practices detailed in this chapter.

Most of these best practices are not simple ones to install because they involve one or more other departments, usually warehousing, purchasing, and engineering. Whenever another manager is brought into the implementation process, the chances of success drop rapidly, since this additional person must be convinced of the efficacy of the change.
