Abstract or Summary

The aim of this research project is to examine the Inventory Management at Dominos, Te Awamutu. This is a franchise business well known for affordable pizzas. Firstly, I checked the background of this business and its daily operations to get to know with business. A SWOT analysis was conducted to identify factors affecting the business activities of the firm. An internal and external analysis was carried to find out strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats for the business. This leads to other theories like sourcing of inventory and supply chains. For this research the primary methods used to collect data were informal interviews and discussion with the manager. This information is privileged to business, therefore qualitative research methods were used. After analysing the data in the inventory system a further literature study was undertaken to find the solution to identified problems. This research was conducted within a short amount of time. In this research, ethics are considered while interviewing staff and collecting data. It also mentions the cost of research. In the end recommendations are suggested on the basis of the conclusions, found by analysing findings.
