Abstract

The goal of the project was to increase the efficiency of BSMs inventory management system at their Clifton Facility. The team evaluated the procedures, diagnosed the problems, and built recommendations to address their problems. Through the provided data and observation, we discovered their current inventory layout inefficient for their inventory flow system, that the current policy regarding customer practices was too lenient, and that BSM does not collect metrics regarding inventory movement. We then developed short term, intermediate and, long term recommendations to combat the problems we identified.
