News - On Counting Things
about 2 years ago
A barcode works way better for marking locations. It’s cheaper to implement, can be read by a cheap scanner or pda/phone, and can be printed by any printer.
As a former inventory manager at a Walmart store, I feel your pain. They have developed a pretty robust system of every physical location in the store having an ID number in the inventory control system. If something is removed from inventory in the back of the store, it is scanned and it’s new location is inputed. If something was returned to the back room, the reverse was done. It was a pain getting used to, but probably the best way to handle things.
Just out of curiosity, do you actually count all of those small bits, or do you count them by weight?
No public wish lists :(
