Background of the Study
Inventory is basically the total amount of goods and materials held in stock by a factory, store and other business. An inventory system is a process whereby a business keeps track of the goods and material it has available. In its simplest sense it can be done manually by a count at the end of each day. In this way it is possible to keep a record of the goods coming in to the business and goods being sold. (Chapter 1 Inventory System, 2011)
Since manual inventory consumes a lot of time and is prone to errors, it would be helpful to build a system that will computerize the transactions from acquisition of the product description to

Kathiann Kowalski (2001) contends, “When it comes to describing people's learning styles, one thing is clear: Because everybody's brain is different, learning styles vary widely” (para.4). Learning styles are an important aspect to individual learning. The ability to recognize personal learning styles and identify strengths and weaknesses enables individuals to reach optimal success. Optimizing personal learning style leaves room for improvement. Learning styles vary and not everyone learns the same way. It is beneficial to evaluate learning styles in order to be productive in any learning or work environment.

This paper describes the Inventory Management System sufficiently to determine the feasibility and usability of a finished system. The core concept is to track the sale of items from the cash registers with additional features for interpreting the data. It uses a client-server model with a connected database to allow multiple stores and warehouses to be connected. This allows for later expansion while still supporting the targeted small businesses. The core features and final framework should be completed within 2 weeks, leaving 5 weeks to implement additional features and testing.

Each individual has a personal view of the world that has been influenced by things such as: upbringing, education, religion, life experiences and relationships. In the modern worldview, there is little thought given to the mind or soul as this is something invisible and so is not measureable. The postmodern view sees people as energy that can be manipulated to restore balance. The Christian worldview believes that we have been created by God in his image (Shelly & Miller, 2006).

CHAPTER 6- Cost of Goods Sold and Inventory
Nature of Inventory and cost of goods sold
Inventory represents products Held for resale and is classified as a current asset on the balance sheet. When companies sell their inventory to customers, the cost of the inventory becomes an expense called cost of goods sold.
Cost of goods sold, cost of sales, or cost of merchandise sold, represents the outflow of resources caused by the sale of inventory and is the most important expense on the income statement of companies that sell goods instead of services.

These issues are compounded by a patchwork of systems—some that are designed specifically for the services supply chain, and some that are borrowed from the main business, with little customization available for service-specific needs.
These challenges result in a services supply chain that protects service levels by storing a large amount of expensive inventory in a central location.
Virtual inventory pooling offers a way to dramatically cut inventory holdings across the service chain. Inventory pooling works by reducing inventories downstream and holding inventories in shared pools upstream. These shared pools can be quickly dispatched to any downstream location that faces a risk of stockout

2. In your opinion, what costs should be included in Dobbin’s inventory and why?
In my opinion,the cost of barrels and warehousing should be included in Dobbin’s inventory. Because the maturing or aging process also belong to the part of manufacturing process. The whiskey was not ready for sale until it was aged and therefore the aging barrel needed to be included in product cost. As inventory costs include all the direct costs involved in the production process till the finished goods.

Martin Manufacturing should not have a hard time meeting their current financial obligations in the near future. With an improving trend in current ratio over the last three years(1.7, 1.8, 2.49), and a current ratio for the current year of 2.49, which is 66% higher than the industry average of 1.5. This tells me that Martin manufacturing has $2.50 in current assets for every $1.00 it owes in current liabilities. The quick ratio doesn’t really have a trend(1, .9, 1.35) over the last three years, but the current years quick ratio of 1.35 is higher than the industry average of 1.2.

Q1. Is there any evidence that Barilla faces the bullwhip effect? If so, what causes of the bullwhip of the bullwhip effect are present?
The bullwhip effect is an observed phenomenon in forecast-driven distribution channels. It refers to a trend of larger and larger swings in inventory in response to changes in customer demand. We believed there was a bullwhip effect in this case. We found the evidence from Exhibit 12 which showed the mean of the orders from Cortese Northeast DC to Pedrognano CDC was 300 while the standard deviation was only 227, the gap was 73. Because customer demand is rarely perfectly stable, businesses must forecast demand to properly position

Inventory problems the hospital is facing are the inability to track in and out properly all of the items currently on hand. There have been several instances that have occurred where the stock in hand and the stock listed in the computer varied. The difference in stock is a result of possible theft, mismanagement, or inaccurate record keeping. Currently the organization is relying on its computer system to have an accurate log of all medication or stocks received, dispensed, and stored based on the doctors’ setting. However, the computer system is prone to human errors and malfunctions within the system. The inability to keep proper records not only

ROE. Therefore, the high ROE from Pete’s and Boston Beer can be explained by their strategic approach of contract brewing.
Observation #2) Boston Beer and Red Hook have similar Total Assets, but, Boston Beer sells about eight times more barrels than Red Hook. Because Boston Beer uses contract brewing, majority of their assets is their inventory (raw materials, beer, etc). This can be observed by the fact that Red Hook has twice the inventory turnover than that of Boston Beer, yet their assets are similar. Red Hook brews their own beer, and so majority of their Assets are their breweries, not their inventory. Boston Beer on the other hand, source out their brewing, so they have low asset numbers like that of a smaller brewing company such as Red Hook. Also, the low asset turnover number means they have tons of inventory in stock and it can be deduced that it makes up most of their Assets.

a. Total units sold = 70 + 60 + 60 = 190
Total units in ending inventory = 60
FIFO ending inventory = (60 × 15) = $900
FIFO cost of goods sold = $2,500
b. LIFO ending inventory = 60 × 12 = $720
LIFO cost of goods sold = $2,680
c. Total cost of goods available for sale = 1,200 + 700 + 1,500 = $3,400
Total units available for sale = 250
Weighted average cost of goods sold = 190 × $13.60 = $2,584
Weighted average ending inventory = 60 × $13.60 = $816
Weighted average cost per unit = 3,400 ÷ 250 = $13.60

ways to grow the business. But too often these discussions fail to address costs. By discussing costs holistically up and down the combined supply chains, customers often can recommend ways to reduce costs. For example, how to take wasted steps out of the process, or how to plan jointly to smooth production, or maybe even how to change the product mix to get rid of costly items and replace them with some that are more profitable. Talking to the customer is never a bad thing. But talking about how to jointly improve business deepens the relationship, shows them you care, and helps reduce costs for both parties.

After comparing Western Digital (WDC) and Seagate (STX) using specific ratio analysis, the following conclusions can be drawn. WDC is more effective at managing its debt obligations then its competitor by a wide margin. Specifically, our assets are considerably lower in amount financed by debt and we earn a wider dollar margin on our interest expenses owed. However, WDC has evident mismanagement of its assets in comparison to its competitor. I believe that this can be attributed to the fact that we keep too much inventory on hand.

Wal-Mart gets their inventory in a ready to sell state. That means no extra cost goes into getting it ready to put on the shelf.
