This allows us to determine which application would be most appropriate for each situation. The 2011 example shows that the average inventory was $500,000 and had a COGS (cost of goods sold) of $1,000,000, giving an inventory ratio of 2. In 2012 however, there were a COGS (1,200,000) and an average inventory ($600,000), which gave an inventory ratio of 2. However, whatever comes to pass, the end result will be a happy one. All this demonstrates why it’s now more critical than ever before equip oneself with necessary skills knowledge order adequately address any situation one may encounter throughout their journey no matter what comes up along way eventually leading successful outcome when all said done.
