Hi, has anyone got any advice on how often to perform cycle counting against ABC classifications. I understand the concept of ABC and how to calculate and classify parts (including frequency and lifecycle) but wondering if anyone has any guidance on the days between counts against ABC/Frequency. We often have problems on shop orders where parts cannot be issued because they are being counted and this frustrates the heck out of the planners. My feeling is that we are counting too frequently and I would like to increase the cycle interval but not too sure where the sweet spot would be.
Grateful if you could share your experiences.
