Abstract:

Methods for conducting physical inventories reconciling stock records to actual stock on hand and location surveys verifying stock location records were studied, with the principal objective of seeing if presently available devices e.g., cameras, voice recorders, handheld calculators, etc. could be used to save time, reduce errors and lower costs. Electronic scales and hand-held electronic calculators were found to offer potential benefits in physical inventory procedures for location surveys, procedures using either cameras or voice tapes were found to offer potential benefits. This report also discusses some procedural improvements that could be made that are not equipment oriented. Author
