Management

Yes, I agree with the management. The demand on the delivery system was higher for the customers because they deliver their products rapidly to the place where they were staying. The demand was less with the production since they will never see how the products were manufactured from an organization. So, the anticipated inventory storage will help out better for the production management (Williams, C., 2011).
