INTRODUCTION  

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The most business organization that makes investment that will make them achieve their corporate objectives, these investments are typically in land, building, machinery, stocks of various types, debtors and cash, when organization are assessing investment project account, must be taken not only on the investment in a mom durabh (fixed) assets but in the current assets as well.

One should note that when controlling inventory, one should let shareholders' maximization be in consonance with the time's goals. When inventory control is imbalanced there should be stock which, could lead to reduction of sales and which can lead to loss of a customer to another competitors.

Secondary to have an overview of inventory control, store procedure pricing stock-taking, and of course the general problem accoutered to the above-mentioned process, increases is to establish an empirical, justification for the introduction of means and wants of remediating the stated problems and also to recommend more objective and rationale is carried out mainly to safeguard the assets, check accuracy and reliability of accounting department and to promote operation efficiency, encourage adherence to presentable management policy and ensure accurate reporting.

1.4  STATEMENT OF HYPOTHESIS

A (Ho) poor inventory management is s a result of inadequate stock control facilities.

(Hoi) poor inventory management is not a result of inadequate stock control facilities

B     (Hoi) storage space limited the size of the inventory held by the small-scale firms.

(Hoi) storage does not limit the size of the inventory held by the small-scale firms.

C     (Ho) proper classification of stock is a major or determinant of efficient inventory control

       (Hi) proper classification of stock is not a major determinant of efficient inventory control.

D     (Hi) poor inventory management  results to either overstocking or understocking problem.

       (Hi) poor inventory management is not a result of inadequate stock control facilities.

1.5  LIMITATION AND DELIMITATION OF THE STUDY

To say there was to limitation during this the research will be an understanding as the research focuses on inventory control. Apart from the limitation is inadequate information some data were given as expected within others were given as all they were classified as given companies secrets.

However, due to financial constraints and time factors, the researcher has decided to further limit the study to the inventory control system. The research was able to collect information.

1.6  DEFINITION OF TERM  

It is important at this point to offer some delimitation and encourages to some of the terms that form the operational framework for the research work in order to facilitate the clearance of purpose.

MINIMUM STOCK LEVEL: the level below stock should normally be allowed to fall.
