Abstract : Inventory record errors can and do adversely affect supply operations. However, the extent and seriousness of the effects of errors on inventory system operations has not been known. Proposals to reduce stock record errors cannot be properly evaluated until the 'costs' of operating with inaccurate records is determined. This study develops a means of determining the effects of errors on inventory system operations. (Author)
