Definicja sample-based physical inventory
The counting or measuring of a small part of the stock (sample) that is representative of the entire stock.
The sample to be inventoried is determined on a mathematical-statistical basis. A physical inventory count and an inventory adjustment posting are performed for the items in the sample. Based on the inventory adjustment posting, an extrapolation provides an estimated value for the entire stock. If the extrapolation is successful, it is assumed that the book inventory is correct.
