Cycle Count Float Time
The definition of Float Time for Cycle Counting is listed as follows:
Indicates the number of workdays by which the planned count date may vary from the current date.
For the plant, the float time is five days.
A physical inventory has been planned for a material belonging to category C for June, 1. On expiration of the float time (after June, 6), the physical inventory has not yet been carried out. Irrespective of the category, the material is parked for the next cycle counting run.
This definition would lead me to believe that if an article that exists on a Physical Inventory Document has not been counted by the time the float time expires it would be flagged to appear on the next PI Document. However, this is not how the system performs. Could someone provide clarification of how this field actually works and what impact this information has on the cycle count process?
