Our goal of materials management is to provide an unbroken chain of components for production
to manufacture goods on time for the customer base. The materials department is charged with
releasing materials to a supply base, ensuring that the materials are delivered on time to the
company using the correct carrier. Materials is generally measured by accomplishing on time
delivery to the customer, on time delivery from the supply base, attaining a freight budget,
inventory shrink management, and inventory accuracy. The materials department is also charged
with the responsibility of managing new launches.
