Speeding Up Your Lead Time

Speeding Up Your Lead Time

Feb 14, 2024

Navigating inventory management is like a balancing act. You don't want to have too much stuff on hand, because that ties up your money and resources. But you also don't want to run out of stuff, because that makes customers mad and you lose sales. The goal is to find the sweet spot where you can meet demand without having too much extra inventory.

The Crucial Role of Lead Times

Lead times—the gap between order placement and fulfillment—are crucial in this balancing act. Long lead times make it hard to manage inventory, so businesses have to keep more stock on hand to make up for it. But if lead times are shorter, businesses can be more flexible and responsive, and they can keep their inventory levels in line with demand.
