Slow-moving and dead stocks have been a classic problem of ceramic tile industries. Different varieties of ceramic tiles have the potentials of remaining as dead stock. Thus, this study is aimed at exploring some preventive alternatives and solutions in overcoming slow-moving and dead stock. Quite many companies experience similar problems, and companies take creative solutions. Semi-structured interviews, non-participant observation, and documentation analysis are data collection methods used in this study. This study showed that the demand forecast is a strategy to avert dead stock. In addition, the solution for the past dead stock is that additional services should be provided to the customers by initiating sales of ceramics with beautiful patterns and being committed to social responsibility activities through giving away the dead stock of ceramics to factory laborers or marginal communities who are renovating their houses.
