The bar-code scanning-based inventory management system reduced wastage due to procedure cancellation rate from 20% to 0%. Mapping the ordering process for non-formulary items reduced the number of steps from 75 to 45 steps, which resulted a reduction in lead time by 50% from 6 months to 3 months. In addition, applying 5S lean method to 17 areas, reduced wastage due to expiry to 0%. There was more than 25,000 USD of saving during the first month of implementation.
