Define a stock count

Before beginning a stock count, you need to choose a stock count method and type.

Three stock count methods:

  • By Item

  • By Location

  • By Location and Item

When you choose a method you can perform two types of stock count:

  • Specify a selection of stock

  • All stock

Stock count strategies

You can create and optimize stock count strategies using the Group and Count Order parameters on individual Location configurations.

You can assign Locations to a named Group, by entering the Group name into the ‘Group’ field on each Location configuration.

You can assign a Count Order to a Location, by entering the count sequence number into the ‘Count Order’ field on each Location configuration. Count order defines where in the count sequence this location will occur.

See Locations.

To bulk create assignments use the Locations Import sheet. You’ll find this in the SOWMS plugin configuration.

See Import Locations.

You can perform a Blind Count, for example when you’re getting started and don’t want to rely on your old system’s numbers. A Blind Count forces warehouse personnel to physically count the stock at each location and enter a number.
