  • This project analyses inventory data with the purpose of proposing a solution to increase the inventory turnover ratio of a company that distributes agricultural products and whose main economic activity is to sell wholesale green and peeled banana. The use of perishable products requires a company to have a high inventory turnover ratio so that the product does not deteriorate until it becomes obsolete inventory, that is, until is no longer suitable for sale. To collect the data, I developed a form where one can identify when, where, how and to whom the product was sold. Based on the form, the current inventory turnover ratio was defined. This was found to be too low, requiring more than one week to make the inventory effective. This ratio was compared with the ideal inventory turnover ratio, which was defined by making a study of how long the product can be stored for before it loses its characteristics. Subsequently, I proposed to maintain some indicators in the inventory policy to constantly control the inventory, and to search new distribution channels in order to use the available inventory.
