Periodic inventory method calculate ending stock at the end of the accounting period, which could be Month to Date or Year to Date, while Perpetual inventory system calcul…ates the ending stock on a continuous basis after each transaction (Purchase or Sell). Within Retail industry, periodic inventory method used for inventory valuation at the stores, whereas distributer like SuperValu (in US) follows perpetual inventory method to track inventory in their distribution centers. As a best practice, some of the retail companies are using perpetual accounting method to track inventory available in warehourses and distribution centers. In an idealistic world, perpetual inventory method can provide the true and real time inventory information, however due to complexities in consolidating all the purchases, sales, shrinkages and other market factors, it is advisable for retail companies to follow periodic accounting method to analyze and review the results before presenting the inventory valuation results to internal and external agencies like Shareholders, Income Tax Authorities, et el.

"Inventory Control" focuses on the process of movement and accountability of inventory. This consists of strict polices and processes in regards to: · The physi…cal and systemic movement of materials · Physical Inventory and cycle counting · Measurement of accuracy and tolerances · Good Accounting Practices "Inventory Management" focuses on inventory as an asset or an instrument of value creation. Inventory is managed to maximize value, exposure, and/or profit while minimizing cost and spend. This consists of: · Product smoothing and leveraging · Selective product placement · Velocity and turns calculation development · Inventory reduction and product rationalization · MRP

Inventory is a control which establishes optimum levels of stocking of materials and equipment for a particular process. It establishes a record keeping system to record the l…ocation, present quantity, and minimum and maximum stocking level of each item held in inventory. When a minimum stocking level is reached, the item is reordered; the maximum stocking level determines how many units are ordered. The process of ordering materials is usually a function of a separate department called Purchasing. Inventory control is necessary in retail sales, wholesale sales, in manufacturing, and construction, where such materials are time critical and need to be available at the moment of request. Warehousing is a control which manages and maintains the storage area for the inventory. It assures that storage space is available for each item of inventory, that there is a mechanisim in place for efficiently transporting stored materials into and out of the warehouse or storage area, and that there is an identified space for each stored item.

A phonemic inventory is an inventory of all the distinctive sounds (or phonemes in a given language. A phonetic inventory describes the inventory of all speech sou…nds, regardless of whether or not the sounds are produced correctly relative to the language. So for example, if you're analyzing a person's phonemic inventory of consonants, you would analyze whether the child produces /t/, /k/ and /b/ but you don't analyze whether /t/ is produced for top, /k/ for kite and /b/ for ball. So it's good for articulation assessments. If you're analyzing a person's phonemic inventory, you would see if the child says 'kop' instead of 'top'.
periodic takes place on an irregular schedule where perpetual is a constant state of inventory
Virtual is what is stored in the computer system that the company uses and physical is actually counting parts by hand.
Their is no Difference
To my opinion Inventory coordinator is a person who monitors the material movement from one place to another (intransit stock monitor) untill it reaches from source to destina…tion AND Inventory analyst is a person who take the physical stock of inventory and places the order or prepare a report/decision that which inventory to be sent or to be received. Also ageing of the stock etc.
in fact there is no diff.
Stock is the goods or items held by a business (shop, warehouse, factory, etc). An inventory is a list of the stock held by the businesses listed above.
