Inventory Management is the direction of activities with the purpose of getting the right inventory in the right place at the right time and in the right quantity and it's directly linked to production function of any organization which implies that the inventory management system operated will affect the profitability ofan organization directly and indirectly ( Ahmad, & Nicholas, 2001). Inventories are the stock of raw materials, work in progress, finished goods and supplies held by a business organization to facilitate operations in the production process, (Pandey, 1995). Also if the company fails to manage its inventory efficiently, it is likely to face profitability problems (Block and Hirt, 1987). The goal of inventory management therefore is to provide the inventories required to sustain operations at minimum costs Alm, (2000).
