dc.description.abstract This document deals with the assessment of Garden City Clinic operating theatres’ stock room and procedures which are followed, to determine the causes of stock being lost. The project is divided into two sections. The first section deals with the stock room. Concepts of inventory, inventory management and control are roughly explained in Chapter 1. An overview on related literature concerning different classification techniques is also addressed. The aim of this section is to use ABC classification technique to identify items that account for a large portion of the total value but a small percentage of the total volume of items which are held in the stock room. The second section investigates the procedures which are followed within the operating theatre. The aim of the section is to identify activities and areas of leakages in the system which contributes to the loss of stock the operating theatre is currently experiencing. en_US
