The allocation of objects to a class.
When you allocate objects to a class, you assign values for the object to the characteristics in the class.
Automatic process during inventory sampling.
In order to minimize the number of elements to be counted during inventory sampling, the random selection is not performed for the entire sampling area, but for individual strata.
To permit the generation of strata, the sampling area is divided into classes, each containing stock management units of "approximately" the same value. This division into classes (classification) is carried out automatically when the stock population is formed.
