record accuracy

A measure of the conformity of recorded values in a bookkeeping system to the actual values, e.g., the on-hand balance of an item maintained in a computer record relative to the actual on-hand balance of the items in the stockroom.

In periods of insufficient capacity, jobs back up indefinitely. This leads to increased lead times and missed due dates. Recovery time is a period of time when capacity exceeds demand to allow the system to empty out. If there is not enough recovery time before the next episode of insufficient capacity, in-process inventory and lead times continue to grow.
