Vital, Essential Desirable
Based on criticality.
Vital – production would come to halt.
Essential – whose stock out cost is
very high.
Desirable – items which do not cause
any immediate loss of production
o Scarcity-Short in supply
o Longer lead time
o Geographical location of suppliers
o Available but not easy to procure
o Reliability of suppliers
o Best to procure once in a year
o Reduce the effort and expenditures
Important assumptions
Demand is known, constant, and independent
Lead time is known and constant
Quantity discounts are not possible
Only variable costs are setup and holding
Stock outs can be completely avoided

Q *= optimal order quantity
Q = order quantity,
D = annual demand quantity of the product
P = purchase cost per unit
C = fixed cost per order
H = annual holding cost per unit
Use duly identified color codes -Search
Follow Banking Method in postings
Issue physical using FIFO method.
Costing weighted average Methods.
Verify stock of ten items daily random
Verify stock of ten items fast moving
Verify stock of every item monthly.
