It’s time to understand that the Parts Department is a major department, that needs as much attention from upper management, including the Controller as any other department. Fixed Ops is half of your business, and the Parts Dept has their hand in all of it, but I’d venture to say gets less than 5% of your time and attention.
Parts inventory isn’t floor planned, meaning every dollar tied up in Parts Inventory is the dealer’s own money, and funded by the Dealer’s bank account. It’s important on many levels why parts inventory must “turn”. Especially with a large amount of dealer capital invested.
