This course will first introduce you to inventories and inventory models. You will study materials management and how to store the material for subsequent use. The course will then discuss the two important questions to ask when ordering materials, as well as talk about the classification of inventory models and the three classifications of demand. You will also look into costs, the components of order cost, and the components of backorder or cost of shortage.

The course will then discuss the Economic Order Quantity (EOQ) model. Here, you will learn how to minimize total inventory holding costs and ordering costs. You will study the EOQ model developed by Mr. Pankaj Mane, which includes backordering costs and multiple items.
