Program Length: 30 minutes 



Forced Stock has a nasty habit of sitting on the shelf and ultimately becoming Obsolete. Early Identification of the true sources of Forced Stock can help you manage this trend effectively…

In this workshop for Parts Managers Guru Chuck Hartle’ examines the causes of “Forced Stock” in your inventory and how to detect it early so that you can lessen its impact on Obsolescence.

Chuck will discuss ways to manage:

  •  Over-ordering by Technicians

  •  Automatic Stock Replenishment (ASR) Programs making the problem worse

  •  Returns from body shops and other wholesale customers contributing to the  losses

  •  The customers failure to return for the actual repair

  •  Training of Service Advisors and Techs to lessen impact of “ordering error”

  •  Your “gut instinct” causing needless speculation and ultimate obsolescence losses
