    Is Cycle Count a Verb?

    Wikipedia defines Cycle Count an inventory management process as follows:

    A cycle count is an inventory management procedure where a small subset of inventory is counted on any given day. Cycle counts contrast with traditional physical inventory in that physical inventory stops operation at a facility while all items are counted at one time. Cycle counts are less disruptive to daily operations, provide an ongoing measure of inventory accuracy and procedure execution, and can be tailored to focus on items with higher value, higher movement volume, or that are critical to business processes.

    My quesitons is-

    Is Cycle Count a verb/adverb?

    Re: Is Cycle Count a Verb?

    It's a noun as used in that excerpt.

    Of course, many nouns in English can be used as verbs and I could see it being used that way among those doing the cycle counts.

    "Make sure you cycle count before going home."

    "Everybody on line 4 has to cycle count today."
