Cycle Counting count effort

Hi All

We have been using SAP for 15 months and would like to now inpliment cycle counting. (we have prevoiusly carried out annual and ad-hoc PI counts)

If I set up all current materials with the ABCD indicators and then run LICC, will the PI suggested count date depend on the GR date of the material or the date that the ABCD indicator was alloted to it?

How can i ensure that the number of matrials will be spread out evenly during the month?

Will I just have to select a manageable number of quants from the list that LICC gives me?

I have calculated an average of 55 materials to count per day over a working year. I dont want to be counting 100+ materials one day and only a few the next. Can SAP help?

I have read a similar post regarding this issue but it didnt answer my question

Thanks in advance

    LICC is for WM cycle count what MI01 is for MM physical inventory.

    You will only use it for your as-hoc counts.

    the standard transaction is LX26.

    SAP certainly does not look for the date when the ABCD indicator is assigned, it chekcs for last inventory date or material creation date. details in OSS note 518418

    How can i ensure that the number of matrials will be spread out evenly during the month?

    you just cannot, except you determine the materials to be counted manually with help of lists or in Excel.

    • It looks like the only way to align the PI dates is to select a predetermined range of part numbers (an average daily figure calculated in Excel based on the ABCD indicators) and then only select that number of parts daily from the list of parts in LICC (with a date range of 1 year)

      This will eventually align the PI history dates and make Cycle Counting more managable.

      Give or take a few parts the average number to count daily will remain reasonablly constant
