    • The Art and Science of Inventory Planning and Management – Part II
      Demand planning needs to account for many different scenarios such as the following – you’re selling an $8.00 widget – a customer wants to buy these widgets but decides to go with another vendor because your price is $3.00 higher than a competitor. Or lets says the buyer wants 8 and you only have a quantity of 5 on hand – they may buy the 5 or decide not to buy because you can’t fulfill the total quantity of 8. That extra 3 or 8 widgets that could have been sold but will not be needs to be incorporated into the demand forecast.

      Three of the four ways that smaller companies can gain a competitive advantage—Financial, Talent and Technique—were covered Part 1. Now I’ll cover the fourth.

    • Bringing Excitement Back to Accounts Payable

      A few years back, I was doing a visit with a customer. We were meeting with various departments to review their processes to determine if there was room for improvement. When we got to accounting, a young man walked in and said "Hi, I’m the Lead AP Clerk – I’m bringing Excitement Back to Accounts Payable". To this day I laugh whenever I think of that. Not sure the word "excitement" has ever been used to define Accounts Payable. But maybe it should.
