The Physical Count process is essential to keeping an accurate inventory, but it can be time-consuming. Cycle Counts are physical counts for subsets of items. For example, rather than counting all items within your store, you can count one category of items at a time. By only counting a portion of your inventory, the count process should be significantly shorter.
Before beginning your count think about the group(s) of items you plan to count. Do the items have something in common? Do they fall in a category or a few categories? Do they come from one primary vendor? Multiple vendors?
The Physical Count Edit List is a report of the unposted physical count. You can use it to find potential count errors or miscounts. It is a best practice to run the edit list report periodically throughout your count in order to check on your progress and review items with high variances, which are items where the expected quantity differs from the counted quantity.

After you are satisfied with your edit list, you will need to post your physical count
