Inventory tracking and forecasting are methods that help you keep track of your inventory levels and anticipate future demand for your products. Inventory tracking involves keeping an eye on your inventory levels, including how many products you have in stock, how many you have sold, and how many you have ordered.

Forecasting involves using historical sales data, market trends, and other factors to estimate future demand for your products. This helps you adjust your inventory levels and ensure you have enough stock to satisfy customer demand without overstocking and wasting resources.
