Analyzing Inventory in IDEA® is a half-day, instructor-led training that walks students through a case study where they are hired to perform an Inventory Review at Bright IDEAs, Inc. The auditor evaluates business and audit risks associated with Inventory and then reviews potential tests that can be used to address those risks. This case study includes audit testing to agree total inventory values, check adequacy and accuracy of inventory, assess the re-ordering system, and analyze profit margins and pricing. We will also utilize a portion of the IDEA Data Analysis Workbook for your reference.
