Yes, that's basically it - this could also refer to the (total) number of stock-keeping units (SKUs), depending on your further context.

... i.e. - as you say - numbers/quantities/volumes rather than their value expressed as a monetary amount.

Note to reference poster
Asker: so inventory was taken based on the amounts measured, weighted, counted etc rather than the monetary value of it?

agree  Adrian MM.: vs. a bulk letting of property (Bestandverhältnis) in AUT! You're right. It doesn't. I was merely pointing to an Austrianism that might be useful to others in a 'landed' context.

  -> Not sure at all if this refers to property/real estate - see asker's added note in the discussion box.
agree  Björn Vrooman: 1st sentence: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bestandsführung Know SKUs from my MS business software days, so yes, certainly plausible. Though Menge is usually quantity, not volume: https://www.tradegecko.com/blog/managing-inventory-with-skus

  -> ... though "volumes" is also used to refer quantities, such as in "sales volumes" (Absatzmengen). Might not fit this particular context, though.
