ABC analysis

Here, the entirety of goods present in a company is structured into A, B and C classes. Classification by turnover involvement would by typical here, with A items being the most, C-items the least strongly involved ones.
The ABC analysis was first described in 1951 by General-Electric-Manager H. Ford Dickie and is based on the work of Vilfredo Pareto (Pareto principle: 80/20 rule) and Max Otto Lorenz (Lorenz curve)
