Organizations usually accord more respect and attention to $1 in cash than will $5 in goods. It is this odd trait of human nature hat intrigued the researcher to investigate the essence of proper materials management on the inventory costs management system of an organization. The research objectives were: a) To assess the effectiveness and the efficiency of materials management in organizations. b) To evaluate the various techniques of inventory costs management in organizations. c) To establish the essence of proper materials management in an organization's inventory costs management system.
