5.10. Key Performance Indicators

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) help to achieve company’s strategic and tactical goals. Companies use KPIs to track their position and to evaluate the implementation of the strategy.

Streamline allows to supervise the following KPIs:

  • Expected overstock value is the value of expected overstock in monetary terms.
  • Expected stockout value is the value of expected stockout in monetary terms.
  • Non-moving inventory value shows (in monetary terms) the items that will not be sold in the future according to the forecast except the situation when the forecast is generated using an intermittent demand model.
  • Inventory turnover shows how many times the item was purchased and then sold out for the last 12 months.
  • Average days to sell displays how many days it takes to make one turnover cycle.
  • Gross margin is the percentage gross profit margin, or how many cents company earns from each dollar of the revenue.
  • Turn-earn index shows the item’s gross margin percentage accumulated over the last 12 months.
  • Annual revenue is the income that the company has collected in the last 12 months, or simply annualized income if we have less than 12 months of history.
  • Revenue next year is the expected revenue for the next 12 months based on the forecasted or planned demand and sales prices.

The Key Performance Indicators are displayed in Demand forecasting tab per item and in the Reports tab as a report. In the Demand forecasting tab, the Key Performance Indicators are located on the bottom right panel as a separate KPIs tab.

The KPIs report can be viewed in the Reports tab. The report can be aggregated by an item, item category, or location using the Aggregate by control.

As the KPIs improve, the supply chain works more efficiently and the profitability grows to the capital being released and the lost sales being prevented.
