Food Cost Control - Alphabetic Approach - By Joe Dunbar
Manufacturing companies often segregate their parts inventories into A, B and C groups. The parts in Group A are used in high volume and are expensive. Group B has two types of parts. The high volume, less costly parts would fall into the B group. Also, expensive parts used in lower volume would be in Group B. Finally, Group C parts would include the largest number of members. These parts are inexpensive and used in low volume.
