Advantages and Disadvantages of stock control methods
Controlling stocks save money, as unnecessary stocks are held. It saves space is shops, and warehouses Food/products won’t go out of date/fashion or be obsolete – e.g. Keep to many Xboxes in stock, they’ll be a new one out before you sell those. Systems and processes take time to set-up, cost money and need training. If stock can’t be seen, it can’t be tested, used or bought if a customer needs one. If there is a big demand then a business might find it hard to get hold of stock. Production could stop, if a part was needed mid production. E.g. Car production and you run out black paint.
