ABC stands for Always Better Control. It is based on the belief that all items must be tightly controlled to generate important cost savings. In materials supervision, ABC analysis is an inventory categorization technique. ABC analysis separates an inventory into three categories.

Items possess tight control and accurate records, B items with less tightly controlled and good records. C analysis items with minimal and straightforward records. It is an inventory categorization technique. In this technique, all inventory items are grouped into different categories.

These categories are based on the value and quantity of the items. The primary purpose of ABC analysis is to determine the level of control and frequency of reviewing all items.

The only false statement about ABC analysis here is that all items require the same high degree of control. The reason for this will be well understood when you know certain things about the ABC Method of Inventory Control. Most businesses now use this concept to divide and arrange their products or items into three different categories.

This means you have Category A, B and C. Mostly, items that are grouped under Category A usually have the highest degree of control. Items that are grouped under Category B have a lower degree of control than items grouped under Category A, but they have a higher degree of control than items grouped under Category C.

Out of the three categories, items or products that are grouped under Category C have the lowest degree of control. This means that items grouped under Category A will have the highest secured areas for storage.

ABC analysis is an inventory categorization technique. It divides an inventory into three categories.

• A items are imperative for an organization.

• It is due to the high volume of these A items that frequent value analysis is required.

• ABC analysis delivers a mechanism for identifying items that will have a considerable impact on overall inventory costs.

• B items are a step below A items.

• They play a role in material management and inventory, but they are not the most prominent items.

• C items have little value compared to the former two, but there is still, nevertheless, value in C items.

• That being said, you cannot classify all merchandise as the same. Inventory cannot be the same quality or possess the same value within each inventory group.

• In other words, A, B, and C each have their type of buyer.

The correct answer to this question is It states that all items require the same degree of control. ABC analysis is related to managing materials. It is a way to categorize inventory. ABC analysis does so by dividing the inventory up into three parts, labeled A, B, and C.

The items labeled A are those items that have tight control and records that are accurate. The items labeled B are those items that have a lesser tight control, and their records are just good. The items labeled C have the simplest type of controls and have a small amount of records.
