Calendar Year or Fiscal Year for the Cycle counting


HI All,

I need your valuable inputs for one of the important issue of our implementation.

We are going live in the DEC 11 first week. In our plant we want to follow the cycle counting process (using T-code MICN) for certain parts and for rest of the parts which will not have CC indicator will have normal Physical Inventory process (using T-code MI31) ,which are to be counted only once a year.

In our company fiscal year is from 1 April till 31 March next year. So for the parts that are to be cycle counted; when do you think we should do first cycle count? Shall we start in the January which is start of Calendar year or shall we eliminate cycle count in this fiscal year and do the first cycle count in the month of April which is start of next fiscal year.

Some of the people are of opinion that we should do cycle for whatever parts that will come up for count till Feb and rest thru MI31 transaction. Will doing this affect the cycle count of the next fiscal year?

We will be loading material master in last week of Nov 11

For Cycle counting which period is considered, is it Calendar year or Fiscal year?

Thanks in Advance.
