Resumo

The achievement of a better customer service level drives companies to structure their inventory management. High levels of inventory can cause an increase in operational expenses. However, maintaining reduced inventory levels tend to reduce the customer service level, resulting in losses and damaging the company's image in the business. This work aims at the development and implementation of a proposal to standardize the decision-making regarding the management of finished goods inventory in a small electronics sector company. The main result of this work is presented as the development of the method done from a cause and effect diagram of the company's problems and the nine steps application of the proposed method. Through this inventory management method, it is intended to improve the level of service, reducing the lack of finished goods in order fulfillment.
