Adopting the Right Solution to Make your Cycle Counting More Effective

Inventory accuracy is the most important metric for the supply chain. Without the significant level of accuracy, organizations will not be able to predict/forecast, costs will increase, and the productivity of shop floor workers will suffer. To solve these challenges, organizations use cycle counting process that aims to conduct the right number of counts to enable them to maintain accurate levels of inventory. Inventory accuracy empowers organizations to provide customers the products they want when they want it.    

However, using an inefficient cycle counting process may leave you at risk of creating misplaced inventory. It causes delays in locating inventory that leads to customer dissatisfaction and missed future business opportunities. To maintain adequately accurate records, organizations should have a solution in place that enables visibility into their inventory no matter where it residesl. With the right solution, organizations can eliminate the gaps in inventory management and enable to them find answers to the following questions: 

  • How often has the inventory misplaced or sat idle? 
  • How often does work stop while a foreman runs to the depot for tools or materials?
  • How often you need to buy a new inventory without knowing, weather is it available or not in your stock. 
  • The amount of inventory theft or waste and their real cost.
