GESTIN-77 Inventory sampling

GESTIN-77 Inventory Sampling

Software for inventory sampling

GESTIN-77 makes the annual total stock inventory counting optional. It searches for just a few counting items: If the sample has a small error, your book inventory can be confirmed as inventory quantity.

The law has given an explicit permission for such procedure. Additionally, GESTIN-77 is certified by a renowned internationally auditing firm.

The inventory sampling basic idea is based on the acceptance that daily stock movements in a warehouse (or only in a specific storage area) are faultless or only slightly faulty with regard to inventory management. This implies that the book inventory of a warehouse management system is basically accurate.

This acceptance is precisely verified by means of a statistically build up inventory count - with only a few samples.

If the sample count deviation from the book inventory is within a range recommended by the auditing firms and associations, it is possible to confirm (extrapolate) the acceptance of a basically accurate book inventory for the entire investigated stock, thus making a full stock inventory unnecessary.

This means on the one hand that only those stocks with basically accurate book inventory balance are eligible for inventory sampling. However, it is quite common to omit such storage areas from the statistical random sampling, which already known in advance that their book inventories are somewhat inaccurate (e. g. general cut goods such as yard goods and residual material). Full acceptance is still necessary for such storage areas.

But on the other hand, it is generally assumed that inventory management is basically not faultless, hence, it is ultimately a matter of measuring the quality of inventory management. In this case, recognised statistical methods are helpful.
 

Inventory Preparation

GESTIN-77 has been specially developed to simplify the inventory process for existing ERP or stock-keeping systems. Data from the leading warehouse management system can be transferred to the GESTIN-77 software via a powerful interface for statistical evaluation further build up. 

GESTIN-77 is a material management extensive modules add-on in the ClassiX® AppsWarehouse®.

 

Inventory Sampling

The sample drawn by recognized statistical methods for counted items and stock spaces is displayed as a count list. The result is extrapolated for a stratification, tested sequentially and with a low error rate compared to the book inventory. The inventory is rightly completed after capturing and counting the sample. Otherwise, the inventory sampling must be discarded.

General Features

The GESTIN-77 is distinguished not only by its special functionality for sample inventory but also by its development on the CyberEnterprise digital platform. Thus, a wide range of functionality is included as standard, such as:
