The second option on the Inventory menu is the Cycle Count function. Cycle Count is a means of keeping track of inventory by consistently counting different subsets of the entire inventory. Cycle Counts are performed by Inventory Control Personnel as a way of maintaining an accurate inventory count.

To perform a cycle count:

Select Cycle Count from the Inventory Menu. Either highlight your desired choice and press "<Enter>" or simply type in the appropriate menu number.
