While it might be accurate (and I emphasize "might"), is a Manual Physical Inventory the optimal approach? Best practices unequivocally say otherwise!

A superior alternative is the adoption of Cycle Counting. Why choose Cycle Counting over a complete physical inventory? This method zeroes in on a selected stock range, allowing concurrent execution with a company's regular operations. Cycle Counts offers a streamlined approach to inventory management, minimizing disruptions to processes related to stock receipt, consumption, or dispatch.

However, before proceeding with archiving or deletion, it's essential to evaluate the necessity of retaining this data. Baan and Infor LN (ERP LN) offer standard archiving sessions within major modules that typically handle a significant volume of historical transactions. These sessions are designed to transfer historical data to an archive company before deleting it from the operational company.

When it comes to archiving sessions, you have three primary options:
