    Why is updating the Inventory Usage status important to do?

    • A.

      It provides an accurate inventory count

    • B.

      It releases staged items

    • C.

      To issue released POs

    Correct Answer
    A. It provides an accurate inventory count

    Updating the Inventory Usage status is important because it provides an accurate inventory count. By updating the usage status, the system can track the items that have been used and deduct them from the inventory count.

Without updating the usage status, there may be discrepancies between the physical inventory and the system's recorded count, leading to inventory management issues and potential stockouts.
