    Periodic Inventory

    In a periodic inventory, all stocks of the company are physically counted on the balance sheet key date. In this case, every material must be counted. During counting, the entire warehouse must be blocked for material movements.

    Cycle Counting

    Cycle counting is a method of physical inventory where inventory is counted at regular intervals within a fiscal year. These intervals (or cycles) depend on the cycle counting indicator set for the materials.

    I would recomand cycle in the case where you always have same cycle

    • you can run as much inventories as you want and can perform.

      By default SAP does not propose already counted items for a next inventory. however, if you set the flags to include already counted items/batches then you can count the same item every day.
