Excerpt . . .

ABC management Application of Pareto's Law, or the 80/20 rule The ABC classifications are determined by descending rank order of all products according to each as a percentage of the total. “A” products are the highest in volume, “C” products are the lowest. Ranking can be performed in terms of volume, dollars, or product weight. Management of inventory is then guided by the segmentation of the products into the ABC categories.
