Why is cycle counting inventory so important?
Maintaining inventory accuracy is extremely important to a distribution center. One of the most effective ways to maintain accuracy is through cycle counting inventory. The larger the facility, the more important cycle
counting becomes. Imagine performing a physical count in a 1M SQFT facility with 36,000 locations that can only afford to shut down for one week. The thought is overwhelming! A proactive cycle counting program can
ensure inventory accuracy through a smaller team performing ongoing perpetual counts. Cycle counting is also critical to maintaining SOX and Foreign Trade Zone compliance. When developing a cycle counting program, warehouse
management system capabilities must be considered. Additionally, velocity and value of the items are important for establishing the pick to path.
