Title of the study: The study of Inventory Management As a part of curriculum, every student studying BBA has to undertake a project on a particular subject assigned to him/her. Accordingly I have been assigned the project work on the study of Inventory Management in CG-PPI ADHESIVE PRODUCTS LIMITED In any organization the inventory of materials plays vital role in working capital management. A small saving in the inventory will reflect a vital margin in profit of the organization. Inventory control means the availability of right materials of right quantities coordinated with lead time. Each and every component of inventory is important and managing the inventories to keep in an optimum level is a must. Being an adhesive tape industry CG-PPI ADHESIVE PRODUCTS LIMITED is facing a stiff competition in the market. Since inventory is the major part of their cost of production there is a need for inventory control by way of reducing cost and optimum utilization of materials. Though the company is having certain policies regarding this, still it requires through study of their policy and systems to some extent to understand the inventory management. At CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited, the Inventory Management has shown increase in the period of study. This shows Inventory is managed effectively and all the other departments are working in perfect co-ordination to ensure the progress of CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited, but I have given some Suggestions & Conclusions on the basis of my Project Study.

Business motives are to produce, sell and make profit. Inventories are playing vital role in every business whether industrial unit are trading organization. Inventories are very broad term and include the elements whose values are always very high, in any industrial unit. Inventory constitutes major parts, approximately 40% to 80% of gross working capital depending upon the nature and size if the industrial unit. Inventory can be any form which consists of raw material, consumables, and spares, work in process, finished goods.


Overall, the objective is to minimize the investment in inventories by excising selective Inventory control techniques.

1. To study and analyze the performance of inventory management of CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited 2. To review the system of inventory model and reorder level of raw material. 3. To find out the economic order quantity for Printing Raw Material and consumables. 4. To determine the optimum level of safety stock for Printing Raw Material and Consumables and to fix reorder point.

This methodology is used to preparation of the project. Both primary and secondary data were used for the preparation of project.

The researcher approaches various functional heads in charge of purchase, production, finance and Stores and collected related information for the study. The data was collected by me based on observation technique personally. The researcher has done physical inspection of stores and stock levels.

1. Data for the previous year was obtained from the records of the company. 2. The stores of CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited consists various inventories of raw materials, consumables, spares packing material etc. the range of inventories are wide and consists about more than hundred items. Hence, the focus was turned mainly to consumables and raw materials. The elements were selected after considering its usage value, importance and contribution towards production.

1. Ratio Analysis 2. Operating Cycle Analysis 3. ABC Analysis


Due to confidentiality of the data and year ending constraint CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited I could not able to collect the required data required for this study. As the company is a closely held one and its policy of disclosing data to the outsiders is restricted. Hence the collection of fully fledged data could not be achieved.

ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION ANALYSIS OF THE PERFORMANCE OF INVENTORY MANAGEMENT OF CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited Operating cycle analysis Operating cycle is one of the important factors in determining the working capital of a concern. Inventories are playing major role in operating cycle. The level of current assets needed for a business significantly depends upon the length of the operating cycle. The longer the operating cycle, the larger will be a compan ys requirements for funds for various stages of the operating cycle. The length of operating cycle of a business is influenced by, 1. Nature of business. 2. Production policies. 3. Terms of purchase and sale. 4. Transportation bottlenecks. 5. Business cycle fluctuations. Inventories constitute 90% of the working capital in many organizations. Hence, managing the working capital is synonymous with controlling inventories.

1) Consumption of Raw Material = Opening Stock of Raw Material + Purchase + Closing Stock of Raw Material = 43,08,249 + 8,18,55,789 + 40,15,901 = 8,21,48,137 Daily Rate consumption in 365 days per year = 8, 21, 48,137/365 = 2, 25,063.38 Average Stock of Raw Material = Opening stock of R.M. + Closing Stock of R.M. 2 = 43, 08,249 + 40, 15,901 = 83, 24,150 = 41, 62,075 2 2 Average no. of R.M. in stock = 41, 62,075 = 18.49 days 2, 25,063.38 The credit allowed to Raw Material = 60 So, the Raw Material cycle = 18.49-60 = -41.51

2) Raw Material to Finished Goods Value of finished goods manufacturing during the year = Opening WIP + Raw Material consumed + Manufacturing Expenses Closing WIP = 43,10,941 + 8,21,48,137 + 12,52,71,141 81,01,568 = 20,36,28,651 Average value of Production per day= 20,36,28,651/ 365 = 5,57,886.71

Page | 17

Average Stock of WIP = Opening WIP + Closing WIP = 43,10,941 + 81,01,568 2 2 = 1, 24, 12,509 = 62, 06,254.5 2 Average Consumption Period = 62, 06,254.5 = 11.12 5, 57,886.71 3) Average period of finished goods held in stores = Opening finished goods + cost of finished goods during the year + distribution expenses closing finished goods = 22,15,000 + 20,36,28,651- 13,40,000 = 20,44,93,651 Value of finished goods sold/day = 20,44,93,651 / 365 days = 5,60,256.57 Average stock of finished goods is = 25,15,000 + 13,40,000 = 19,27,500 2 Average period for which finished goods have remained in stores = 19, 27,500/5, 60, 256. 57 = 3.44 days

4) Credit Collection Period

The daily sales = 14,53,70,444 \ 365 = 3,98,275.18 Average debtors = 6,81,85,847+5,42,76,291 = 6,12,31,069 2 Time for collection = 6,12,31,069 = 153.74 days 3,98,275.18

Therefore the total operation cycle = - 41.51 + 11.12 + 3.44 + 153.74 = 126.79 days 365 days/ 126.79 = 2.87 times

Raw Material

CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited operating cycle is 126 days. It shows the working capital turned over about times a year. CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited have almost identical days inventory outstanding. For most companies, their total operating cycle periods are, typically, considerably shorter than the almost 4-month periods evidenced here. Our assumption is that this circumstance does not imply poor inventory management but rather reflects product line and industry characteristics. This company may be obliged to carry large, high-value inventories in order to satisfy customer requirements.

Ratio analysis
Ratio analysis is a power tool of financial analysis. A ratio is defined as indicated quantity of two mathematical expressions. Ratios help to summarize large quantities of financial data and to make qualitative judgment about the firm financial performance. Ratio can be compared with sum standards. A company may select either of the following standards of comparison. Ratios calculated from the past financial statement of the same firm. Competitors of the industry to which the firm belongs.

Activity ratio / turnover ratio

Activity ratios are employed to evaluate the efficient with which the firm manages and utilize its asset. These ratios are called turnover ratio because they indicate the speed with which assets are being converted or turned over into sales. A proper balance between sales and assets generally reflects how efficiently the assets are managed. The following informations have been collected from the financial indicators for the past two years as mentioned below:

Economic order quantity is the size of the order representing standard quality of the material and it is the one for which the aggregate of the costs of procuring the inventory and the costs of holding the inventory is minimum. There are two types of cost under EOQ 1) Ordering Cost 2) Carrying Cost 1) Ordering Cost: The term ordering cost is used in case of raw materials and includes the entire cost of acquiring raw materials. They include cost incurred in the following activities: requisitioning, purchase ordering, transporting, receiving, inspecting and storing (Store Department). 2) Carrying Cost: Cost incurred for maintaining a given level of inventory are called Carrying Costs. They include storage, insurance, taxes, deterioration, and obsolescence. EOQ Uses 1) EOQ is useful to decide how many inventories should be added when inventory is replenished. 2) It is useful in deciding lot sizes, which will reduce both ordering and carrying costs. 3) By using EOQ the optimum inventory level can be maintained, which will reduce the investment in inventories.

Reorder level is that inventory level at which an order should be placed to replenish the inventory. the term re-order point may be defined as same as above that level of inventory when fresh order should be placed with the suppliers for producing additional inventory equal to the EOQ. The re-order level would be established at appoint such that the stock in hand would be just sufficient to meet the demand during the lead line. To determine the re-order point with certainty we should know: (a) Lead time (b) Usage (c) EOQ Lead Time: The time between ordering a replenishment of an item and actually receiving the item in to inventory is referred to as lead time. If lead time is zero then no need for placing the order in advance. If the lead time exists and also demands known, then it is required to place an order in advance by an amount of time equal to the lead time. If the lead time is low, then a small stock is required. But if lead safety time is significant then the company will have to maintain higher safety stock level to avoid stock out. Thus the capital tied up in inventory will be high. Average Usage Average usage is the important used in reordering level. Average usage is consumption of materials is utilization of the resource to its maximum extent during a particular period say week, month, or year. Average consumption is arrived by dividing consumption during a particular period into the period taken for study. Safety Stock Safety stocks are maintained to minimize the effect of unascertained in demand on lead time. The safety stock may be defined as the minimum additional inventory to secure as a safety margin or cushion to meet on unanticipated increase in usage resulting from various uncontrollable factors. In case of imported items the safety stock component of

Process of Physical Inventory Maintenance
CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited has its own store department that we can call it as Work-in-process inventory. This inventory process is fully computerized and here paper work is very less. Only maintaining of documents, which were sent by suppliers as like challans etc., are only here to maintain as paper documents. Otherwise it is fully computerized. Through computers only Store Department receives Purchase Order and by computer only they send documents of issuing of materials to production department. For easy to communicate and planning of production activity, CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited has having only one Godown in Procedures involved in receiving and issuing of materials are as follows: 1) Godown will first get Purchase Order No..

Purchase Order Number: This PO is comes from Purchase Department. This Purchase Department gives a number for the each order made by Purchase Department only. Before placing any order to suppliers they first check the materials in inventory as to know about whether materials are available in Inventory or not. If not available in Inventory then only they will place an order according to the requirement. In CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited it is very important to note that: purchase department always places an order to those materials which have ordered by Customers/buyers of CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited. So, normally it does not have any stocks in its inventory. For every order from customers they make a fresh Purchase Order for purchasing of materials. It means whatever the materials are requiring for present orders, those materials are only they kept as stocks in Inventory. In some cases, materials may be in Godown, which they call it as Buffer Stock. If these old stock is matches the requirements of product which has ordered now by its customers,
Page | 39

then purchase Department will sent a notice to Inventory for issuing of those materials. These old stock may be in form of Raw Material or in form of Work in Process. CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited always produces more than its requirements. For example if Polyester tape has ordered for 100 and there is only 80., 20% more than its requirements. So the remaining or excesses material they call it as Buffer Stock.


Receiving of Materials

Any materials comes-in or goes-out from the Godown it should be enter in the Gate that is they call it as Gate Entry, which is maintained by security Guard. Guard is not an employee of an organization. He is a contract-based employee. When Inventory receives materials it first inspects some samples, so for it, they call up as Spot Inspection. Here they inspect the following points:

a) Is it our supplier only and is this parcel is for us only? a. Are these received materials according to the Purchase Order? Like i. Quantity ii. Date, etc., b. Is it having all required Challans or Invoices and also does it approved by authorized person? c. Is it having all required documents like Octroi etc., d. Is that Challan consisting the correct information of materials? After approval of materials by sample inspection, inventory department put these details in manual book; this documentation is called as Day Book. This daybook is consisting of information like Challan No., P.O. No., Style No., Description of Materials, Suppliers Name, transporters Name, and Quantity.

After completing of these processes, materials will send to inspection department. In this inspection department they inspect in-details of materials. After approval by inspection department, this inventory department makes one document, which is they call it as Goods Received Document.

This Goods Received Document is consisting of GR No., Date, GRN Type (In-store), Mode of Transport, Challan No., Challan Date, Status, Gate Entry No., Gate Entry Date, Priority No., all Details of Materials and received quantity and actual quantity also enters there.

1) Issuing of Materials Merchandising Department will send one card called Job Card which it consisting of all details of materials requires to produce a product. According to that Card Inventory department should send the materials to manufacturing department. After receiving of materials by manufacturing department from inventory department they issue one document about received of materials, quantity, description of materials etc. Manufacturing Department uses these materials for manufacturing purpose. In manufacturing process sometimes it may happens like some materials get damages and some are not fully matches with requirements. Then those materials will be return to inventory. After utilizing of all these materials by manufacturing department they will send one document called Order Completion Report (OCR). This report consists the information of Percentage of Utilized Materials for particular order and percentage of wastage of materials. This report will send to inventory and also to Merchandising Department.


Return Back Materials from Manufacturing Units:

Inventory takes those materials, which are return back from manufacturing units because of excess or surplus occurs while manufacturing of products. This excess or surplus
Page | 41

exists because of purchase department, they always orders 20% more than its requirement to meet the requirement of next month. So these materials are kept in Inventory as name it as Buffer stock. These Buffer Stocks will be utilize when company get the same type of Order. Inventory issues these materials (Buffer Stock) only when it receives instruction from Merchandising and purchasing Department.


Rejected Materials:

Inspection department make the rejection of materials, when materials are not as per requirements and not as per the order. These rejected materials are kept in separate section by Inventory Department. Inventory department inform to Purchase Department and also notice to Suppliers about rejection of materials. That is called Rejection Card. In this card it involves Name of Supplier, Description of Materials, Challan No., Challan Date, Gate Entry No. & Date, No. of Quantity rejected, Reason for rejection etc., Sometimes supplier may issue new materials in place of rejected materials. Or he may give some compensation for wrong supply and that is after paying of full payment of materials.

Purchasing Procedure of Materials In CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited they purchase materials at from a multiple Suppliers. There is a reason for purchase materials from multiple suppliers. The reason is if one supplier delays to fulfill the supply then there must be alternative supplier for it to fulfill the requirement. So there must be no stock outs in the production process.

CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited always purchases at bulk but by schedule wise. In other words they purchase materials at a time for specific order. They make the agreement of some supplying materials only at once. And they negotiate the price

Page | 42

according to market condition and once their agreement is over then they provide schedule to supplier to supply the materials at a specific time and at a specified quantity. So it reduces the spaces, which occupies in the Godown. So this method is suitable for this type of industry because of same orders from customers.

WIP Store Now we come to the WIP Store. As we have already seen that this CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited is having only one Godown and company is having its own Store Departments. As we know that Work In Process Store means Semi-finished Goods, here goods are not completed yet and not these are in fully raw materials form. So in valuation matter it is having slightly different way. And in CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited it is as follows: Yes, these goods are includes some labour cost, some other costs. So in valuation of WIP they valuate at Raw Material Price of those goods PLUS incurred cost to produce till now.

Finished Goods Valuation of Finished Goods in CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited is at 10% less than Selling Price of those finished goods. Finished Goods are in the sense these goods should be ready to dispatch. There is no separate Godown for Finished Goods/Products. Every unit is having its own Finished Goods Godown. In that Godown only they store these Goods. And dispatching of these products is directly by company. They do not consolidate these goods; they dispatch these finished products directly by company.

ABC analysis classifies inventory items in three categories based on their values. Always better control is its real meaning. Items of high value but small in number are classified as A item, which would be under a strict control. Moderate value and size are classified as B items and the management should pay reasonable attention. Small value items would require simple control. The values also relatively low in this type of items. Advantages of ABC Analysis. 1. Facilitates selective control and thereby saves time. 2. Eliminates lot of unnecessary paper work. 3. Facilities control over usage of stores materials which ultimately results in cost and there by inventory control. Limitations of ABC Analysis i) Low value purchases frequently require more items and thereby reduce the time available for value analysis, vendor investigation. ii) Classifications of items should be reviewed and updated periodically otherwise the very approach of control may be defected.

SELECTIVE INVENTORY CONTROL TOOL The company pays its attention only A class items of raw material analysis for its over all inventory system. But the company is in a situation to group its important inventories in ABC analysis. Procedure of ABC analysis Actual inventory usage basis ABC analysis on actual inventory holding Basis with the following steps i) Determine the period in respect if which the usage is to be computed. ii) Determine the actual consumption value of selected period. iii) Average the items in descending order placing first the item having the highest value. Reason for selection of actual inventory holding Basis In CG-PPI Adhesive Products Limited the emphasis is placed on the Actual inventory holding basis with a view to avoid stock outs. S. No. 1 2 3 TOTAL Inventory Nature Raw Material with high value Consumables and spares Packing Materials Class A B C Annual Value (in lakhs) 925 25 10 960 % of annual value 96% 3% 1% 100%

1) Company is incurring more expenditure on inventory because of holding high level of stock. 2) Working capital blocked in the inventory for 31 days (one month) which is a quite healthy sign for an organization. Perfect inventory levels are good for the company because they represent an investment is medium. It also rises the company up to height should price begin to rise. 3) Safety stock should be increased in case of Polyester Film 25 MIC, Fiber Glass Fabric 461 S, Natural Rubber PLC II, Escorez 1204 and Adcryl AP 505 because average consumption and safety stock is half of monthly consumption. 4) Modern inventory control techniques are followed by the company. 5) Item Fiber Glass Fabric 461 S and Natural Rubber needs close control with regards to replenishing and its lead time is longer and quantity required is more per month. 6) In respect to material turnover, holding of inventory has been decreased from 25 days to 18 days. It is very good sign for the company because there is an optimum investment in inventory

1) It may suggest that proper reorder level for consumables and raw materials printing may be maintained so that, the company can prevents the over stock or stock out level. 2) As it was understood from the study that the company maintaining safety stock which is not adequate to certain materials. So to avoid stock out the safety stock may be maintained at optimum level. 3) To reduce the inventory cost such as carrying cost, ordering cost it is suggested that the company can apply EOQ model to all the materials, consumables and tools to the extent possible. The reorder level should be placed at the right time, based on the raw material availability in the store.

6) In order to reduce the expenditure and to maintain inventories at optimum level, it is necessary to implement proper planning, budgeting and coordination among all functional departments. 7) The review can be made to all the material available in the store to avoid the unnecessary dumping of materials, so the company can save the storage cost and space. 8) The production department may introduce the new technique called vendor quality management to ensure the standardized quality in the finished product. The concept is adopted in all leading companies. 9) To reduce the lead time and to save ordering cost it may be suggested to localize certain important items instead of importing from other country. This will give a chance for increasing employment opportunities to our people.

Inventory control means the availability of right materials of right quantities coordinated with lead time. Each and every component of inventory is important and managing the inventories to keep in an optimum level is a must. Being a tape industry CGPPI is facing a stiff competition in the market. Since inventory is the major part of their cost of production there is a need for inventory control by way of reducing cost and optimum utilization of materials. Though the company is having certain policies regarding this, still it requires through study of their policy and systems to some extent to understand the inventory management.
