ABSTRACT

Inventory control system is typically a key aspect of almost every manufacturing and/or distribution operation business. Despite the relentless effort research has shown that the promotion of inventory control system among Kenyan companies has not been very effective in terms of implementation. Organizations are therefore turning to using modern technology to overcome such challenges. Implementing inventory control system faces numerous implementation challenges. The objective of the study will be to determine if Cost, technical capacity, organization culture, and availability of ICT systems are the factors affecting implementation of inventory control systems in manufacturing industries in Kenya. The study used a descriptive survey research design and data was collected through the use of the questionnaires. Five point likert scales was used to collect data. Collected data will be analyzed using SPSS software version 22.0. The study findings will then be presented in frequency tables and charts. The study concluded that improved anticipation of future developments in manufacturing firms in Kenya will improve their successful implementation of control systems and new technologies are promising to save costs and thus improving the successful implementation of control systems.

Keywords: inventory control system, implementation, manufacturing and inventory.
