In consideration of the scarcity raw materials, their exorbitant costs of procurement and management in the present prevailing economic condition, if is imperative for firms to do away with the rule of thumb’ approach of inventory control and adopt the scientific approach. It is on the basis of this that the need for this study lies.
1.2 THE STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
The goal cot every business entity is to maximize wealth. Wealth maximization is achieved when the interest of the shareholders are met. The interest of the shareholders can be met only when the business entity makes profit. Profit is said to have been made when the total revenue exceeds the total cost and expenses incurred.

Few manufacturing firms use scientific approach of inventory control. Many fall back on the rule of thumb. This is reasonably inaccurate. It leads in to over-stocking or under stocking over stocking entails incurring high storage spaccs and stock loss
On the other hand, under-stocking may result to panic buying and diction delay and loss of sales revenue which gives rises to be of profit and goodwill or even penalty payment where there is a conduct to maintain regular supplies.
Stock losses could occur when inventories are not properly accounted for. This may be due to type of inventory system used, the method of valuation of unused of unsold inventories at the end of valuation period and the managerial efficiency in adopting an acceptable inventory. Control when most required.
This study will look in to the nature and external of solving their problem.
