Between a periodic physical inventory and a computer-track inventory, which has more value and why in your opinion? 

What are three potential consequences of a poorly planned and monitored receiving process? How could these consequences have been prevented?

However what the computer says and what is really there are two different things as you pointed out. So when should a physical inventory be taken? Is it different depending on the product you have on hand? 

The reason I say this is the way they handle the inventory on a daily basis with ordering is all computerized. When they sell something it tells the system that they need to ship that amount to the store. Another company that does the same type of system is Ikea. However as you said employees can scan the wrong merchandise in, there can be shrinkage or loss and then the physical inventory is different than what the computer says. How can this same concept be applied to the food service industry? 

For the most part depending on the business they will always do a physical inventory in this business and then if they can afford a computerized will have this as well. When they take the physical is the biggest difference. What happens when there is a discrepancy? 

So this is important from a kitchen aspect to know what you are going through in order to know what to order and to inventorize the items. Is it just as simple as inventorize the items? How do you know what you need to have on hand?
