Industries do not have a finish goods strategy that is killing their profit as inventory keeps increasing. Sometimes they keep stock to cater to client needs, and in this case, if sales do not happen for that product, it’s a stock and working capital increases.
if they do not keep the stock, then they have a fear of loose the order. Actually, it’s a strategy that they need to decide. if their customers are ready to wait for the product, do not overproduce. As overproduction is one of the 7 losses. if the customer is not willing to wait to keep stock, make sure you need to sell only those products in the market as ready stock. Finish goods strategy can be made to stock or make to order, a combination of both is deadly.
