Data Analytics Wisdom : KPI Reports
Why do companies need KPI reports ?
They say what cannot be measured, cannot be improved. Many of our clients struggled to streamline their operations till they decided to institute a KPI report to measure the health of their business.
For example - a manufacturing business needs to know:
how many orders it receives
what % or value of these orders it is able to fulfill ( with inventory it has)
how much product the company produces
how many shipments are sent correctly
Which numbers should companies listen to ?
The answer is, it depends on your business.
For example: If yours is a manufacturing business then you can measure the following
Sales : How much did you sell ?
Inventory availability: Of the sales you made, what % of orders were you able to fulfill with the inventory you had
Production : How much inventory were you able to produce to meet the sales demand ?
Shipments : Of the inventory you had to meet sales demand, how many shipments did you send ?
