Inventory is also company money, materialized in supplies towards the elaboration of products in-process, finished and for sale.

Keeping an organized and updated inventory will allow you to save time and resources. Also, knowing that type of product you have available and what state it is in helps in organizing what you already have, so you will not have waste and you will be able to sell as you produce.
