  2. Will the new software/hardware system be used for simply conducting physical inventories, or will asset data need to be housed within the system for historical asset records and reporting?

  3. How do you adapt your planning policies ( as service, stocking and placement) and processes ( as movement of inventory from supply to customer) to the rapidly changing marketplace demands?

  4. What transportation scheduling system does your organization use; push driven a fixed delivery schedule of a set quantity to a set location, pull driven demand, or a combination of both?

  5. How do you use lean, agile, or just-in-time methodologies or practices like vendor-managed inventory or supplier-managed inventory to reduce costs without impeding your responsiveness?

  6. Is excess equipment identified and reported to your organizationwide Inventory Management Program of your organization of General Services for transfer or disposal on a timely basis?

  7. Can the solution provide an application audit or inventory to determine what applications, firmware, or other available version information is present on an endpoint?

  8. Are the materials management warehouse facilities and space utilization, inventory turnover and stock levels, and reorder point determination, within expected norms?

  9. Has management developed an inventory of tested and risk-rated algorithms so that you can rely upon them and focus on other algorithms that may pose greater risks?

  10. What main areas of difficulty can be identified in the current supply chain at the focal organization and in international manufacturing companies in general?
