ABSTRACT
This article discusses the significance of the use of input management. It is essential for management of manufacturing concerns to pay adequate attention to input aspects of their business in profit earning terms. It is necessary for the company's management concerned with input to be pro-active, and to think and act strategically while continuing to meet operational requirements. It is important to strive for balance in the strategic management of the business which takes due cognisance of input factors and their interrelationship with other system elements. It is essential to pay adequate attention to the achievement of sustainable economic advantage over competitors through the development of positive relationships between the parties in the company system.
