UKQ UK Approved Diploma in Inventory Control and Management Course

The course follows a logical path through inventory management. To make this easier we have divided the material into four parts or modules.

Part I gives an overall introduction to inventory management. It discusses the movement of materials through supply chains, reasons for holding stocks, their importance, use, costs, and so on. There are essentially two approaches to inventory management: Independent demand methods, which assume that overall demand for an item is made up of a large number of independent, small demands from individual customers; dependent demand methods, which assume that there are some links between the demands for different items.

Part II of the course looks at independent demand inventory methods. This starts with the classic models of inventory control, which calculate an optimal order size under various conditions.

Part III discusses the information needed to support these methods, including information from the inventory management information system, forecasts of demand and planned operations.

Part IV describes dependent demand methods. The main approaches of this type are based on material requirements planning and just-in-time operations. Together, these four parts give a comprehensive review of current thinking and practices in inventory management.

There are ten modules or chapters in the course, each of which follows a consistent pattern with:

  • A list of aims, showing what you should be able to do after trainee of the course;
  • A statement of the key concepts covered in the course;
  • The main material in the course, divided into coherent sections;
  • Summaries and review questions at the end of each section, with solutions to review questions at the end of the course;
  • Worked examples to illustrate quantitative ideas;
  • A review at the end of each module summarizing the material covered;
  • A short project to encourage research into the subject;
  • Problems to give practice in the quantitative analyses;
  • Discussion questions to stimulate thinking and research.
