Residual inventory analysis

Is stagnant inventory growing at this moment?

What is stagnant inventory? What is the difference from the surplus inventory?

Excess inventory is a state where products purchased more than necessary are not sold and are left as inventory in warehouses and the like. On the other hand, stagnant inventory refers to inventory that cannot be sold as it is. Excess inventory is caused by the accuracy of forecasting at the purchasing and ordering stages. On the other hand, stagnant inventory is generated by the store management system. Excess inventory and stagnant inventory have different causes of occurrence, so it is necessary to identify the cause and take separate measures.
Some people say that they can be discovered by operating the inventory management system properly and analyzing POS data. Certainly, by operating these, it is possible to discover candidates for surplus inventory and accumulated inventory. However, the only way to check the actual storage status is whether it is surplus inventory or stagnant inventory. Therefore, the accumulated inventory grows without realizing it. Accumulated inventory cannot take corrective measures unless the cause of occurrence is identified, and its growth cannot be prevented. Also, in the case of accumulated inventory, unless measures are taken, it cannot be cashed and cannot be used for payment.


Early detection of stagnant inventory through inventory!

What is stagnant inventory analysis?

By comparing the inventory data of the warehouse and the sales floor and analyzing it, you can discover the inventory that only the warehouse has. Combining multiple data from inventory that is only available in the warehouse, we will discover a product that has no place to sell in the sales floor = stagnant inventory. Furthermore, it is possible to perform inventory analysis focusing on specific products such as A-rank products that have a high sales impact by combining POS with data.
AJIS conducts inventory, collecting product codes, inventory, and location information. Therefore, it is possible to immediately detect the division between the warehouse and the sales floor, and where in the sales floor the goods were displayed. In addition, simple analysis is possible at stores that we have conducted in the past. Singular points can be extracted by comparing the entire group, neighboring stores and similar stores.
We have specialized staff specialized in analysis and can also provide analysis data using BI tools.

Why did stagnant inventory occur?
We carry out many in-store surveys other than inventory. By combining these know-how, we will identify the cause of accumulated inventory from the inventory that can only be found in warehouses. Since the cause is clarified and you can see where there is room for improvement, it is easy to make improvement measures and you can expect certain effects. In addition, by regularly performing inventory analysis in accordance with inventory and disseminating the results, an appropriate amount of tension is usually created for employees and a high awareness of retained inventory can be given.
