We have used generalized data aggregated at the durable/non-durable product level and not a standard industry classification (SIC) or firm-specific level. However, one can extend and compare the study to the specific industry/firm level. Such an extension to a manufacturer would enable him to use the forecasts and trends in the ratio to decide on whether to speedup or cut down production. To a retailer, it would help in decisions regarding which item prices to discount or escalate. One can also envisage an extension to a multi-echelon inventory system in which a distributor stocks different classes of products at different levels of the echelon.

However, a cursory look at the I-S ratio of diverse product types reveals the inefficiency of using the sales series for forecasting inventory requirements. Presently, this ratio is typically higher than 1 and sometimes higher than 2 for certain product types. The conflicting dynamics between inventory and sales (shipments) leads one to believe that an appropriate index that preserves the relationship between these two variables and can yet be modeled by a single time series needs to be established.
