Home > Lean Terms & Definitions > Inventory Turns


The rate at which inventory is “sold out” and restocked — that is, turned over. Faster inventory turns indicate an organization is holding less excess inventory. Inventory turns are usually calculated by dividing the cost of goods sold for a period by the average inventory cost for the period.
