The stocktake accuracy rating calculates a percentage score and overall rating based on how close your Craftybase stock on-hand numbers were to your actual physical count. It is designed to give you a better idea of your accuracy between stocktakes so that you can determine if improvements to your process need to be made.
A score is assigned based on the following:
|0||Perfect||Your physical stock was exactly the same as your calculated stock on hand in Craftybase.|
|+/- 2%||Very Good||Your stock numbers deviated by -2% to 2%|
|+/-5%||Good||Your stock numbers deviated by -5% to 5%|
|+/-10%||Okay||Your stock numbers deviated by -10% to 10%. In this situation, you may wish to review your stock adjustment and manufacture history to see if improvements can be made.|
|Review||Your stock numbers deviated by more than 10%. Depending on the material, this could indicate that you may need to review your stock adjustment and manufacture history to determine the cause.|
