What is Inventory Accuracy (Location)?
The number of physical inventory locations/spaces that match up with the quantity and location in the reported inventory system divided by the total number of inventory locations/spaces counted, as a percentage.
Why should Inventory Accuracy (Location) be measured?
Inventory Accuracy measures the precision of the controls set in place to maintain correct inventory counts. Low values for this KPI may suggest that the company has issues with theft, poor inventory tracking, insufficient training for warehouse employees, supplier documentation errors, too many people responsible for inventory control or inadequate systems in place for defining units of inventory (units vs. cases vs. pallets, etc.). Low performers in Inventory Accuracy will not only have to spend time and money resolving inventory accuracy issues, but they also risk not knowing the true amount of inventory on hand, which increases the risk of stock-outs and backorders for customers.
