  • Where I work, we used to have to shut down the warehouse for a day or two every year to do inventory. It was very painful one year, when production was trying to build/ship, but couldn’t get parts out of the warehouse. It really sucked. After that we started doing cycle counting all year long. It has been very successful. When the auditors come, there is very little interruption. It’s a little annoying for the warehouse folks, but has been good overall.
    I did find an article about it.
