Managing cash flow in a manufacturing business is complex. There are an amazing number of interconnected processes and decisions that impact revenues, profitability, and whether you have the cash you’ll need to survive and thrive (in good times and in bad times).

One of the larger drivers of that complexity in a manufacturing business is inventory.

I look at inventory as a necessary evil. Necessary in that you need inventory on hand to manufacture your product and sell it to customers. Evil in that it’s a huge cost driver… and holding inventory can be a big drain on your cash flow.

Many entrepreneurs and CEOs have come to believe that accounting is a cost center that was never intended to add value at a higher level. As a result, they tend to expect very little from their accounting department when it comes to helping them achieve their vision and strategy for the company.

You would be surprised how many construction companies set aggressive goals for landing new projects, achieve their goals by winning many of those new projects, only to find that they grew themselves right into a cash crisis. They say "Let's go out and win some new and bigger projects. Everything will get better if we just increase the number and size of the projects we win."

Verne Harnish, in his book Scaling Up, says it beautifully: “Growth sucks cash – the first law of entrepreneurial gravity.”

The reality of business is that growth, especially rapid growth, is almost always a net user of cash. This is especially true in the early stages of a new project.
