News - Inventory Day 2011
about 4 years ago
I once wrote some software to automatically figure out what to count (access frequency, value, location, etc), and make the daily count sheets. +1 for cycle count with ABC. Watch out for multiple locations, they can get you.
I once worked somewhere where if R&D needed a part for something, they’d walk out and get it. Guess what that did to the inventory management system… R&D vs production. Fight!
Cycle counting the item when inventory % box size == 0 sounds pretty smart. That’s a great way to knock time off counts. I’m curious about worst case stats - under by a small number means there’s a mostly full box to be counted.
I wonder about what happens to buffer assisted counting if a new box has to be opened to finish an order. (need 5, 4 left in old pile) Everyone needs to follow the rules, or it all breaks down.
I think if you get the QR codes on boxes, then you just need a robot to run around and scan all the full boxes. :) Sharpie the QR code (leave the mfr bar code) when the box is opened.
