7 Days Revenue

Shows revenue for the most recent seven days regardless of the date range of the report.

For example, if using the Inventory KPIs report for April 1 - 7, the 7 Days Revenue will still show revenue for the last seven days. The Revenue column will show revenue for the date range of the report.

7 Days Sales

The number of units that were sold the previous seven days.

14 Days Revenue

Shows revenue for the most recent 14 days regardless of the date range of the report.

For example, if using the Inventory KPIs report for April 1 - 7, the 14 Days Revenue will still show revenue for the last 14 days. The Revenue column will show revenue for the date range of the report.

14 Days Sales

The number of units that were sold the previous 14 days.

30 Days Revenue

Shows revenue for the most recent 30 days regardless of the date range of the report.

For example, if using the Inventory KPIs report for April 1 - 7, the 30 Days Revenue will still show revenue for the last 30 days. The Revenue column will show revenue for the date range of the report.

30 Days Sales

The number of units that were sold in the last 30 days, including stockouts (out of stock days) if applicable.

30 Days Stockouts

The number of days in the last 30 days when a product has been out of stock.

Stockouts are the days when a product is out of stock. For example, if stockouts shows as '15', then that means the stock level for the variants was 0 or less for 15 days during the date range. 

365 Days Sales

The number of units that were sold in the last 365 days, including stockouts (out of stock days) if applicable.

A

ABC Class or “A” Class, “B” Class, “C” Class

Classes are categories of your inventory. By default, the “A” Class includes SKUs comprising the top 80% of revenue, “B” Class is the next 15%, and “C” Class is the final 5%. 

You can change these percentages in Account > Settings > Forecasting. By default, we calculate classes based on revenue within the last 30 days of sales, but the option to calculate it based on the number of units sold and lifetime sales is available.

ACP (Average Cost Price)

Average cost price = COGS / number of units sold

Actual sales

Shown on the Edit Forecast page, Actual Sales indicates the number of units sold less returns.

Adjusted sales velocity

The adjusted sales velocity is based on forecast heuristics such as "excluding holiday sales". Note that it can be different to the sales velocity, calculated as sales divided by the number of days in stock.

Age

The length of time since the first order date for a product or variant. If it hasn't yet been sold, then the "created at" date will be used as the start date for calculating age.

Alerted (Filter)

The alerted filter (where Alerted = Yes) highlights variants that have either run out of stock or will run out of stock before they can be replenished (stockouts are forecast during the lead time). Alerted items will be indicated with either a red or yellow "Details" icon. 

Annotated (Filter)

The annotated filter (where Annotated = Yes) displays variants that contain information in the Notes field. To view the Notes field, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of Replenishment. 

Approve

Found in the bulk actions menu, "Approve draft" is used to change a purchase order's status from "Draft" to "Open".

ASP (Average Sale Price)

Average sale price = Revenue / number of units sold

Assembly

An assembly must be produced from components (variants) before it can be placed into stock and made available for sale. These goods are pre-assembled before they are sold and fulfilled.

Assemblies include any produced goods with a bill of materials (BOM), and bundles/kits that must be produced before sending to Amazon (or a different fulfillment warehouse). All bundles associated with FBA are considered assemblies, since Amazon only carries finished goods/produced bundles.

Assembly (filter)

Add the "Assembly" filter to search for component variants connected to a specific bundle.

Assembly component (filter)

Add the "Assembly Component" filter to limit variants in display to component variants that are needed when assemblies are sold.

Assembly orders

Also considered “production orders,” these are orders to build new assemblies from existing (or incoming) component stock. Learn more about Assembly Orders.

Assembly cycle

An assembly cycle is a production cycle describing how often assemblies are produced (in days). For example, to break down assemblies replenishment into a weekly production schedule, you would input 7 days as the assembly cycle.

The assembly cycle is configured in the "Assemblies" view of Replenishment as the frequency of production runs in days.

Assembly time

The time it takes to produce new assemblies if/when component stock is available. Note that this is separate from the component (variant) lead time which describes how long it takes to order items from a supplier.

The assembly time is configured in the "Assemblies" view of Replenishment as the time it takes in days to produce new assemblies from existing component variant stock. It defines the "Expected Date" for new assembly orders.

Available on hand (filter)

The "Available On Hand" filter displays all items in stock (when Available On Hand = Yes). If Available On Hand filter = No, then only items with 0 or negative stock levels will show in the report.

Available stock is inventory on hand at that location in excess of what will be needed during the days of stock (planning period). This metric is based on the lowest amount of stock needed (based on the forecast) during the days of stock. Any inventory available over that amount is identified as available stock.

(Note that Overstock is excess inventory after the days of stock, while available stock is excess inventory during the days of stock.)

AVG cover (in months)

Average cover in months = Number of units in stock / average monthly sales (AVG sales per month)

... where stock is always the current stock and average monthly sales are always for the Replenishment period.

AVG lead time

Average lead time is calculated per variant by looking at the number of days between a purchase order's creation and received date, for every purchase order containing the item. The total is then averaged.

AVG PO Cover (in months)

Average purchase order cover in months = Number of units in non-closed purchase orders / average monthly sales

AVG Retail Price (Average Retail Price)

Average retail price = Revenue / units sold for the selected period of time

Where:

Revenue = gross revenue - discounts - returns

Gross revenue = number of units sold × sales order price before discounts and taxes

Discounts = gross revenue - revenue

Returns are the number of product units included on returns (items sent back to the merchant). Return information is pulled from your connect sales platform and cannot be edited with Inventory Planner.

AVG ROS (Average Return on Sales)

Average return on sales = profit / number of units sold

AVG Sales / Day

Average sales per day = Sales / time period in days

There are no adjustments for out of stock days.

AVG Sales / Mo

Average sales per month = Sales / time period in months

There are no adjustments for out of stock days.

AVG Stock Cost (Average stock cost)

Average stock cost = Sum of stock cost of inventory during the select time period / number of days in the selected period

Where:

Stock cost = units in stock × cost price of the item

Cost price is the variant's price in the supplier catalog. It is the price you pay to a vendor per item as noted on your purchase order.

Historical stock information is available as of the date that your Inventory Planner account was created. 

AVG Stock Gross (Average stock gross)

Average stock gross = Sum of gross stock cost of inventory during the select time period / number of days in the selected period

Where:

Stock gross = regular price × stock

The regular price is the product retail price before discount, sometimes called the "compare to" price. This price is set in your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Stock is the number of units of inventory. This number is pulled from your connected platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner (unless you have an IP warehouse set up, in which case you will need to control stock manually).

Historical stock information is available as of the date that your Inventory Planner account was created. 

AVG Stock Retail (Average stock retail)

Average stock retail = sum of gross stock retail of inventory during the select time period / number of days in the selected period

Where:

Stock retail = Price × stock

This will be the retail price of a unit of inventory. 

Price is the current product retail price as set on your sales platform. This price is set in your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Historical stock information is available as of the date that your Inventory Planner account was created. 

AVG Stock Units (Average stock units)

Average stock units = Units in stock during the selected time period / number of days in the selected time period

Historical stock information is available as of the date that your Inventory Planner account was created.

B

Barcode

The UPC of a product.

If your connected sales platform does not have a barcode field, you can import this information using a Single or Multiple Vendor Catalog.

Brand

The name a product is sold under on your connected site, e.g. Nike.

Note: For Shopify users, the "Vendor" field in Shopify maps to the "Brand" field in Inventory Planner.

Bundles

A group of variants sold together as a single unit, e.g. a first aid kit.

Note that bundles are different from Assemblies that need to be pre-manufactured or pre-assembled before they are placed into stock and made available for sale.

Bundle (filter)

Add the "Bundle" filter to search for component variants connected to a specific bundle.

Bundle component (filter)

Add the "Bundle component" filter to only display component variants which are sold as a part of bundles.

C

Category

A label for a group of similar products. For example, skis might be in a winter sports category. 

Categories are created in your connected sales platform and are not editable within Inventory Planner.

CBM

Cubic meters per unit. When this is set, Inventory Planner will show CBM in purchase orders so that you can estimate how many cubic meters the container will be. 

Replenishment CBM = CBM of an individual item × replenishment amount

Class (filter)

The "Class" filter refers to ABC Class or “A” Class, “B” Class, “C” Class.

Classes are categories of your inventory. By default, the “A” Class includes SKUs making up the top 80% of revenue, “B” Class is the next 15%, and the “C” Class is the final 5%.

You can change these percentages in Account > Settings > Forecasting. Classes are determined based on the last 30 days of sales.

Closing Stock

The amount of stock on hand for the end of a time period. The closing stock is based on the historical inventory snapshots taken by Inventory Planner.

Closing stock cost 

The cost value of stock at the end of the selected period.


Closing stock cost = Cost price × stock as of last sync


Where the cost price is the product price in the supplier catalog and the stock is based on the historical inventory snapshots taken by Inventory Planner. Note: This is always based on the historical cost prices. Contact support to update metrics based on the current cost price.

Closing stock gross

The gross value of stock at the end of the selected period.

Closing stock gross = Regular price × units in stock

Where regular price is the retail price before discounts and the stock is based on the historical inventory snapshots taken by Inventory Planner. Note: This is always based on the historical regular retail prices.

Closing stock retail

The retail value of stock at the end of the selected period.


Closing stock retail = Price × units in stock

Where the stock is based on the historical inventory snapshots taken by Inventory Planner. Note: This is always based on the historical retail prices.

Collection

A collection is a set of products presented together, also usually visible on the store's front end. A collection can contain products from different categories and a product can belong to several collections.

Collections are created in your connected sales platform and are not editable within Inventory Planner.

Cost of Goods Sold (COGS)

COGS = Number of units sold × landing cost price


If the "landing cost price" is not set, or is set to "0.00", the "Cost Price" field is used.

The landing cost price is the total unit cost for including cost price and related expenses. In addition to the vendor cost it includes shipping, handling, and discounts. Landing cost is the cost price in addition to extra expenses (not only the extra expenses).

Note: For EU merchants, VAT should be included as part of the Cost Price.

"Cost price" is the variant price in the supplier catalog. This is the price you pay to a vendor per item as noted on your purchase order.

COGS Diff % (Percentage change in cost of goods sold)

Percentage change in COGS = (Cost of goods during current time period - Cost of goods during previous time period) / Cost of goods during the previous time period

Combined Warehouse

A combined warehouse can be used to see total demand from more than one warehouse. A combined warehouse allows you to choose which warehouses to include to show total demand (sales information). You also specify which warehouses' stock to consider. 

Competitive price

For Amazon sellers, the competitive price is pricing for active offer listings based on two pricing models: New Buy Box Price and Used Buy Box Price.

Components lead time

Component variant lead times are configured using the "Variants" view in Replenishment. They will be pulled into the "Assemblies" view automatically, and are considered in the replenishment analysis for new assemblies (above and beyond what can be assembled from existing component stock).

Conversion rate

Conversion rate = Number of units purchased / number of page views

This information pulls from Google Analytics and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Cost compare

The "Cost Compare" metric shows the cost prices from each vendor associated with a variant.

When you have a variant that can be sourced from different vendors, there could be different cost prices associated with each. The "Cost Compare" feature shows each of these cost prices.

Cost price

Cost price is the variant price in the supplier catalog. It is the price you pay to a vendor per item as noted on your purchase order. If there's more than one vendor, the cost price displayed is an average of them.

If your connected platform has a cost field, we recommend updating cost prices there to keep all information in sync (as updating costs in Inventory Planner will not push that information to your platform). If your platform does not have a cost field, then you can add costs directly to Inventory Planner.

When you have a variant that can be sourced from multiple vendors, there could be different cost prices associated with each. The "Cost compare" feature can display each of these cost prices.

Learn more about how to compare costs when a variant is sourced from more than one vendor.

Created at

The date at which the product was imported or created in your sales platform.

Note the "created at" date will reflect when the product or variant was set up in your system, and is different from the "published at" date which indicates when a product most recently became visible to your customers.

Current stock

The inventory level available as of the last sync between Inventory Planner and your connected platform(s).

Custom Alert (filter)

Using the Custom Alert filter (where Custom Alert = Yes) will display variants that have alert settings which differ from your account settings.

Low stock alerts, email frequency, safety stock, and notify in advance alerts can be set in Account > Settings > Alerts.

Variants can be given different settings by selecting them and using Bulk Actions.

D

Days of Stock

The number of days that inventory should cover.

Days of Stock are important to determining reasonable replenishment recommendations, and are also used to report on overstocked inventory. Products with stock in excess of forecasted days of stock will show as overstocked.

"Days of Stock" closing stock

The estimated amount of inventory available for sale at the end of the Days of Stock period. The "Days of Stock" figure is the number of days that inventory should cover, starting after the lead time (i.e. the time it takes to order and receive inventory from your vendor).

The Days of Stock closing stock is calculated by taking the Lead Time closing stock and subtracting the estimated number of units sold during the Days of Stock (i.e. the Days of Stock period forecast).

For example, a Days of Stock closing stock of 110 on February 13 2021 indicates that the estimated stock level will be 110 units as of February 13 2021, where February 13 2021 is today's date, plus the lead time in days, plus the Days of Stock in days.

The Lead Time closing stock factors in the current stock level, items on order and transferring in/out of the selected warehouse, and units estimated to be sold during this time (indicated as the Lead Time forecast).

"Days of Stock" period forecast

The number of units that should sell during the "Days of Stock" period.

For example, a "Days of Stock" period forecast that reads 1010 for 30 days indicates that Inventory Planner calculates 1010 units should sell during the 30 day period (where Days of Stock is set to 30).

Details

By clicking on the "i" icon in the Details column, you can access more information about replenishment, forecasted stock levels, edit the forecast or historical sales information, view stock history, set up bundles, merge or link variants, and customize low stock alerts.

Discounts

The discounted price is taken from actual sales orders by comparing the listed price to the price in the sale order.

Discounts = Gross revenue - revenue

Where:

Gross revenue = number of units sold × sales order price before discounts

Revenue = gross revenue - discounts - returns

Discounts %

The discount percentage of gross revenue.

Discounted (filter)

Using the Discounted filter (where Discounted = Yes) displays all items that have a planned discount. 

Planned discount = Regular price - price 

E

Excluded holiday sales

The number of units sold and the corresponding number of dates removed from the forecast calculation when using non-seasonal forecasting methods.

For non-seasonal forecasting methods (Recent Sales & Trends and Last Sales), it can be helpful to exclude certain periods of unusual sales from the forecast calculation. For example, by excluding Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, the forecast the following weeks and months will not be overstated following a spike in sales. Configure excluded sales in Account > Settings > Forecast.

Expected date

The calendar date on which items on a purchase order or transfer are anticipated to arrive. Providing an expected date that is as close to accurate as possible will improve the accuracy of your replenishment forecast. 

If there are multiple purchase orders, transfers, or both that are open, the earliest expected date will be reflected in the Expected Date column of reporting.

The expected date on a transfer is calculated as the creation date plus the lead time by default. It can be edited when creating a purchase order or transfer.

F

First 7 days revenue

Revenue made during the first 7 days after the first sale date. If the first sale date is not available, then the product creation date is used.

First 7 days sales

The number of units sold during the first 7 days after the first sale date. If the first sale date is not available, then the product creation date is used.

First 30 days revenue

Revenue made during the first 30 days after the first sale date. If the first sale date is not available, then the product creation date is used.

First 30 days sales

The number of units sold during the first 30 days after the first sale date. If the first sale date is not available, then the product creation date is used.

First 60 days revenue

Revenue made during the first 60 days after the first sale date. If the first sale date is not available, then the product creation date is used. 

First 60 days sales

The number of units sold during the first 60 days after the first sale date. If the first sale date is not available, then the product creation date is used. 

First 90 days revenue

Revenue made during the first 90 days after the first sale date. If the first sale date is not available, then the product creation date is used.

First 90 days sales

The number of units sold during the first 90 days after the first sale date. If the first sale date is not available, then the product creation date is used.

First received at

The date on which a product was first received on a purchase order or transfer.

First received qty (quantity)

The number of units received into inventory from the initial vendor purchase order or transfer.

Read more about receiving a purchase order.

First sold at 

Shows the first sales for a product.

This information comes from your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Forecast

The projected customer demand, displayed as sales in units for the "days of stock" period.

The forecast is calculated using the sales velocity and the sales trends in recent months (are sales increasing or decreasing?). Sales velocity is the rate of sales excluding out of stock days. Seasonal products emphasize the sales trends from the prior year rather than the most recent months.

Forecast cost

Forecast cost = Forecast units × cost price per unit

This is the projected cost of forecasted units for the "days of stock" period.

Forecast lost sales

The sales units missed during the lead time due to stockouts.

Stockouts are the days when a product is out of stock. If there is a stockout during the lead time based on the forecast, current and incoming stock, potential sales will be missed since a new PO can only arrive after the lead time. This metric is an estimation how many sales units will be missed during lead time.

Forecast lost profit

Forecast lost profit = Forecast lost sales × (price - cost price)

Forecast lost revenue

Forecast lost revenue = Forecast lost sales × price

Forecast profit

Forecast profit = Forecast units × profit per unit

The forecast profit is the projected profit for the "days of stock" period.

Profit per unit looks forward to show the listed price and current landed cost. If the landed cost price is not available, Inventory Planner will use the cost price.

For Amazon sellers, product profit is the competitive price - landed cost price - the estimated platform fee.

Forecast revenue

Forecast revenue = Forecast units × price


The forecast revenue is the projected revenue for the "days of stock" period.

Forecast sales

The forecast sales is the projected customer demand shown as sales in units for the selected period on the Overview > Forecast section.

Forecasted stock

Forecasted stock is based on the forecasted demand for each product and the current stock on hand.

Forecasted stock for the lead time and days of stock are available in Replenishment > Details. Read more about how different forecasts are calculated in Inventory Planner.

Forecast wholesale

The number of units needed for wholesale orders during the "days of stock" period.

G

GMROI (Gross margin return on investment)

GMROI = profit / average stock cost

Where:

Profit = Revenue - COGS - platform fee

Revenue = Gross revenue - discounts - returns

COGS = Number of units sold × landing cost price
If landing cost price is not set the cost price field is used.

Average stock cost = Sum of stock cost of inventory during the selected time period / number of days in the selected period

Stock cost = Units in stock × cost price of the item

Cost price is the variant price in the supplier catalog. This is the price you pay to a vendor per item as noted on your purchase order.

Historical stock information is available as of the date that your Inventory Planner account was created. 

Gross Regular Revenue

Gross regular revenue = Number of units sold × regular price


Gross regular revenue is calculated using the regular price (sometimes called the "compare to" price).

Gross Revenue

Gross revenue = number of units sold × sales order price before discounts and taxes

Gross revenue does not subtract returns and is same as the gross sales metric in Shopify.

Gross Sales

Gross sales = Sales + returns

Number of units sold during the time period. Returns are not deducted from this number.

H

Hidden in overstock (filter)

Using the "Hidden in Overstock" filter (where Hidden in Overstock = Yes) displays items that won't appear in the Overstock report because a user has hidden them from view (for example, items that are relatively new and you do not consider overstocked). 

Holiday excluded sales

When a non-seasonal model is used, Inventory Planner excludes holiday sales such as Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the week before Christmas so that unusually high sales do not skew forecasting calculations. 

I

ID

A unique number assigned to each variant by your eCommerce platform or inventory management system.

Image

A photo of the product or variant, pulled from your connected sales platform.

In assemblies

When viewing the stock levels of assembly components (usually in the Variant view of Replenishment), this figure represents additional/separate units that have already been assembled into final goods. These units are not available to create new assemblies.

In-Stock % (In-Stock percentage)

In-Stock % = Days in stock / days in the selected period

The In-Stock percentage is the inverse of the Stockout percentage metric.

Stockouts are the days when a product is out of stock.

IP tag

IP tags (Inventory Planner tags) allow you to assign tags to variants within your IP account. These allow you to group, filter or search for variants using these labels. Read more about how to set up IP tags here.

IP variant

A component of a bundle that isn't sold as an individual variant. IP variants only exist in Inventory Planner. Read more about how to set up an IP variant here.

IP variant (filter)

Using the IP variant filter (where IP variant = Yes) will display only IP Variants in your report. Read more about how to set up an IP variant here.

IP warehouse

A manual warehouse used to represent a location containing inventory that customer orders are not directly fulfilled from. This manual warehouse exists only in Inventory Planner and is used to transfer stock to other locations that do handle order fulfillment. 

Is bundle component (filter)

Using the "Is Bundle Component" filter (where "Is Bundle Component" = Yes) will display only variants that are components of bundles in Inventory Planner. 

L

Labels

Noteworthy descriptions for products and variants including "New Product", "Overstocked", and "Discounted".

Landing cost price

Landing cost price is the total unit cost, including cost price and related expenses. In addition to vendor cost, the landing cost includes shipping and handling and discounts. Landing cost is the cost price in addition to extra expenses (and not only the extra expenses). 

Note: For EU merchants, VAT should be included as part of the cost price.

Landing costs can be imported, which is useful when your Inventory Planner account is new. Over time, Inventory Planner will compute updated landing costs as you create and receive purchase orders, provided you set a shipping cost and choose to update variants on saving the orders.

Last received at

The most recent date a product was received and added to inventory.

Last received qty (quantity)

The number of units received into inventory from the most recent vendor purchase or transfer.

Last sold at

The most recent date of sale for a product.

The last sold at date is set in your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Lead time

The amount of time it takes to order a product from the vendor and receive it into inventory. Lead times are an important factor in forecasting.

Lead time closing stock

The estimated amount of inventory available for sale at the end of the lead time period, factoring in the current stock level, items on order, items transferring in and out of the selected warehouse, and the number of units estimated to be sold during this time (indicated as the lead time forecast).

For example, a lead time closing stock of 110 with a date of January 14, 2021 indicates that the estimated stock level will be 110 units as of January 14, 2021, where January 14 2021 is today's date plus the lead time in days.

Lead time forecast

The number of units that Inventory Planner estimates will be needed during the specified lead time.

For example, a lead time forecast of 24 "for 14 days" indicates that 24 units will be needed during a 14 day lead time.

The forecast is calculated based on sales velocity. Read more about how different forecasts are calculated in Inventory Planner.

Lifetime revenue

Lifetime revenue = Price × number of units sold for the lifetime of the product

The lifetime revenue represents all revenue of a product, not limited to the revenue generated in a report's date range. To see the revenue from the report date range, use "revenue". 

Price and unit sales information comes from your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Lifetime sales

The number of gross units sold during the lifetime of the product.

The lifetime sales represents all units sold of a product, not limited to the number of units sold during the date range of the report. To see units sold only during the report's date range, use "sales". 

Unit sales information comes from your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Listing

Listings are the items you sell synced from your connected platform. They correspond to variants.

Low stock alert

Low stock alerts are created when a variant needs to be reordered, based on the forecasted demand, items in stock and items on order. They are sent on an item's replenish date.

LY

Last year. Used to compare metrics for the same period in the prior year.

LLY

Last last year. Used to compare metrics for the same period two years prior.

M

Margin

Margin = Profit / revenue

Where:

Profit = Revenue - COGS - platform fee
Revenue = Gross revenue - discounts - returns
COGS = Number of units sold × landing cost price


If the landing cost price is not set, the cost price field is used instead.

Markdown

Markdown = Gross regular revenue - gross revenue

Where:

Gross regular revenue = Number of units sold × regular price

Gross revenue = Number of units sold × sales order price before discounts and taxes

Gross Regular Revenue is calculated using the regular price (sometimes called the 'compare to' price).

Markdown %

Markdown percentage = Markdown / gross regular revenue

Markup

Markup = Profit / COGS

Merged variants

A new variant that has been merged into an old one, usually done when a product has an updated style or a slightly changed size. Merging variants means the new product has the sales history needed to create a forecast. Learn how to merge variants.

Modified at

The last time product information was updated on your sales platform.

When details on a product page are changed, Inventory Planner will reflect the date that those details were updated.

MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity)

The lowest amount that you are allowed to order from a vendor.

When an MOQ is set and it is not met in a purchase order, you will see a warning at the bottom of the purchase order. See more here about how to set up MOQ.

N

Name

The title of the product or variant.

When included in reports, this column in Inventory Planner also displays the product or variant's SKU, barcode, and ASIN. If you would like see just the product or variant title, use the 'Title' column instead.

Next to assemble

Before purchasing new component stock, you can create new Assembly Orders using existing component stock based on the recommended "Next To Assemble" quantity.

The replenishment quantity for assemblies is the "Next To Assemble" quantity plus the additional replenishment needed to satisfy forecasted sales during the Days of Stock period.

If there is not enough existing component stock to assemble any new assemblies, the "Next to Assemble" quantity will be the same as the Replenishment quantity.

No cost price (filter)

Using the "No Cost Price" filter (where "No Cost Price" = Yes) will display variants that do not have a cost price set in Inventory Planner. 

The cost price is the variant price in the supplier catalog, i.e. the price you pay to a vendor per item as noted on your purchase order.

If your connected platform has a cost field, we recommend updating cost prices there to keep all information in sync (as updating costs in Inventory Planner will not push that information to your platform). If your platform does not have a cost field, then you can add costs directly to Inventory Planner.

Notes

Information you enter about a variant. For example, if an item will be available at a discounted rate later in the year, you could enter a note to indicate that information.

O

On assembly

The number of units in the process of being assembled.

Any assembly with a status of "Open" or "Partially Received" will be reflected in the "On Assembly" total.

Old stock (filter and label)

Old stock is stock that:

  • was created over two months ago

  • has not been included on any sales for over two months

  • has not been received for over two months

  • is not due to be received (on order quantity is zero)

On order

"On Order" indicates the number of units on active purchase orders.

Active purchase orders have a status of "open" or "partially received". Purchase orders with the "draft," "closed," or "cancelled" statuses are not considered active.

Note that warehouse transfers will show quantities in the "transfer in" and "transfer out" columns. Different from purchase orders from vendors, warehouse transfers have a source and destination warehouse.

On order % (on order percentage)

On order % = Units on active purchase orders for a particular variant / all units on order 

On order cost

The on order cost is the cost value of units "on order", calculated using the cost price from the supplier catalog.

On order cost %

On order cost % = Cost value on active purchase orders for a particular variant / the total cost value on order 

On order retail

On order retail is the retail value of "on order" units.

The retail value is the current product retail price as set on your sales platform. It cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

On order retail %

On order retail % = Retail value of a particular variant in active purchase orders / the total retail value on order

Retail value is the current product retail price as set on your sales platform. This is set in your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Opening stock

The amount of inventory on hand at the start of the selected time period. The stock is based on the historical inventory snapshots taken by Inventory Planner.

The cost value of opening stock based on the historical inventory snapshots taken by Inventory Planner.

Note: This is always based on the historical cost prices. Contact support to update metrics based on the current cost price.

Opening stock gross

The gross value of opening stock.

Opening stock gross = Regular price × units on hand at the beginning of a report's time period


The regular price is the retail price before any discounts are applied. The stock is based on the historical inventory snapshots taken by Inventory Planner. Note: This is always based on the historical regular retail prices.

Options

Sizes, colors and other variant options that apply to a SKU or product. The options assigned to a SKU or product are set in your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Order limit

The order limit will reflect the "maximum shipment quantity" from Amazon's restock report in your Seller Central account.

The order limit will be reflected in the "to order" amount, along with the minimum order quantity and units of measurement amounts.

Overstocked (filter)

Using the "Overstocked" filter (where "Overstocked" = Yes) will display variants that are forecast to have stock on hand beyond the planning period, provided no new orders have been received in the past two months.

P

Page views

The number of times that product page has been viewed. This information is pulled from Google Analytics and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Past lost profit

An approximation of the profit lost due to stockouts. Profit is the difference between revenue and cost of goods sold for an item. This is calculated based on the profit during the report date range and stockouts during that period.

Lost profit = Profit × stockouts % / (100 - stockouts %)

Where:

Profit = Revenue - COGS - platform fee

Revenue = Gross revenue - discounts - returns

COGS = Number of units sold × landing cost price
If the landing cost price is not set, the cost price field is used.

Stockouts % = Out of stock days / days in the selected period

Past lost revenue

An approximation of the revenue lost due to stockouts. Revenue is how much customers pay for a product less discounts and returns. It's calculated based on the revenue during the report date range and stockouts during that period.

Lost Revenue = Revenue × stockouts% / (100 - stockouts%)

Where:

Revenue = Gross revenue - discounts - returns

COGS = Number of units sold × landing cost price
If the landing cost price is not set the cost price field is used.

Stockouts % = Out of stock days / days in the selected period

Past lost sales

An approximation of the number of units not sold due to stockouts, calculated based on the number of units sold during the report date range and stockouts during that period.

Lost sales = Sales × stockouts% / (100 - stockouts%)

Where:

Sales are the number of units sold during the report date range.

Stockouts % = Out of stock days / days in the selected period

Past revenue

Revenue for prior periods (i.e. previous months). Note the difference compared to "Past Revenue LY", which is the revenue earned during the same month the prior calendar year. Past revenue shows revenue earned in the same year where applicable.

Revenue = Gross revenue - discounts - returns

Returns use the sales order return date, not original order date, matching the Net Sales metric in Shopify.

Past revenue LY

The revenue earned during the same month the prior calendar year. Note the difference compared to "Past Revenue", which is revenue for the prior period (i.e. previous months).

Revenue = Gross revenue - discounts - returns

Returns use the sales order return date, not original order date, matching the Net Sales metric in Shopify.

Past sales

Units sold during prior periods (i.e. previous months). Note the difference compared to "Past Sales LY", which denotes the units sold during the same month the prior calendar year. Past sales shows units sold in the same year where applicable.

Sales are the number of units sold for the selected period (date range of the report) less returns.

This information comes from your sales platform.

Past sales LY

Units sold during the same month in the prior calendar year. Note the difference compared to "Past Sales", which denotes the units sold during the prior period (i.e. previous months).

Sales are the number of units sold for the selected period (date range of the report) less returns.

This information comes from your sales platform.

Period

The time span or dates during which to display data.

Planned discount

Planned discount = Regular price - price

Price and regular price are set in your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Planned margin

Planned margin = (Historical price -  historical cost price) / historical price

Price is the current product's retail price as set on your sales platform as of the end of the date period selected in the top right. Price is set in your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Cost price is the variant's price in the supplier catalog. This is the price you pay to a vendor per item as noted on your purchase order. For this metric we look at the cost price that was set as of the period selected in the report.

If your connected platform has a cost field, we recommend updating cost prices there to keep all information in sync (updating costs in Inventory Planner will not push that information to your platform). If your platform does not have a cost field, then you can add costs directly to Inventory Planner.

Planned markup

Planned markup = 100 × (Historical retail price - historical cost price) / historical cost price

Planned sales

Planned sales will show units sold for the entire month (not remaining days if viewing the current month). When viewed on the Edit Forecast page of Inventory Planner, it includes any edits to the Inventory Planner forecast and wholesale orders if applicable.

Planning period

The planning period is the lead time + days of stock as set in the Replenishment section of Inventory Planner.

Planning period forecast

The planning period forecast displays the number of units that Inventory Planner estimates will be needed during the specified days of stock. For example, a planning period forecast of "49/30 days" shows that 49 units will be needed during 30 days of stock. The forecast is calculated based on sales velocity.

Read more about how different forecasts are calculated in Inventory Planner.

The product retail price before discount, sometimes called the "compare to" price. This price is set in your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Remaining units cost

The cost price of units that have not been received on a purchase order. The cost price of received units, called "Received Units Cost", are excluded from this figure.

Replenish date

The last date to place an order to avoid running out of stock. If stock is predicted to run out before more stock can be received (based on forecasted sales during the product's lead time), the current date will be displayed.

Note: If min stock is configured, then the replenish date is based on the last date to place an order to avoid going below the min stock level. If there is no min stock, then the minimum is zero.

Replenishable (filter)

When the "Replenishable" filter is "Yes," only items which are marked as replenishable will be included in the report. Items marked as non-replenishable will be excluded.

Replenishable items are items that should be reordered. When the "Replenishable" filter = "No" then non-replenishable items will be included and replenishable items will be excluded from view.

Discontinued and dropshipped items should be marked as non-replenishable.

Replenishable (status in columns)

The "Replenishable" column shows whether an item is replenishable or non-replenishable.

"Yes" in the Replenishable column indicates the item is replenishable. "No" indicates the item is non-replenishable. 

Replenishment

Replenishment indicates how many more units are needed in order to meet customer demand. It's based on forecasted demand, and takes into consideration current stock, on order or transfer quantities, continued selling during the lead time, and how many units are needed to meet demand during the days of stock.

Replenishment CBM

Replenishment CBM = Volume of an individual item shown as CBM × replenishment

CBM is cubic meters per unit. When this is set, Inventory Planner will show cumulative CBM in purchase orders so that you can estimate how many cubic meters the container will be.

Replenishment cost

Replenishment cost = Replenishment × cost price

The replenishment cost is the purchase cost to cover the "days of stock" period. Cost price is the product price in the supplier catalog. 

Replenishment profit

Sales are the number of units sold for the selected period (date range of the report) less returns. This is information comes from your sales platform.

If the first sale of the variant occurs during the reporting period, then the sales velocity calculation starts with the first sale date by default. Contact the Inventory Planner team if you would like the "created at" date used instead of the "first sold at" date.

Sales velocity / day

Sales velocity per day = Sales / (period for forecast in days - stockouts in days)

Sell through

Sell through = Sales for the selected period / (closing stock for the selected period + sales)

"Sales" in Inventory Planner refers to net sales, and is different to gross sales.

This metric does not take stockouts into account.

Sells out info

This metric indicates when stock of a product will run out, and how much profit would be lost each day if the stockout lasts beyond the planning period (lead time + days of stock).

If an item sells out within the planning period, 'sells out info' will be blank.

For example, if a product's planning period is 30 days but the stock runs out in 20 days, the column will not populate.

Sells out in

The number of days until a product will be out of stock.

"Sells out in" starts with your forecast, then considers your current stock and any items on order to calculate when you'll run out.

"Sells out in first" displays whether stock will run out before a PO arrives, based on its expected date.

To see when current stock will run out, use "stock cover in days".

Sells out in first

If there are products on a purchase order, "Sells out in first" will indicate if there is a predicted stockout before the products arrive.

"Sells out in" will show when products run out after the PO is delivered.

To see when current stock will run out, use "stock cover in days".

Stock end (closing stock)

The number of units at the end of the selected period.

Stock gross

Stock gross = Regular price × stock


Regular price is the product retail price before discounts, sometimes called the "compare to" price, and stock is the number of units of inventory.

Both figures are set in your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner (unless you have an IP warehouse set up, in which case you will need to control stock manually). 

Stock in assemblies

The number of units of a component (variant) which are being used in finished assemblies.

Stock retail

Stock retail = Price × stock

The retail price of all units in inventory.

T

Tags

Tags are used to help describe and filter products, orders and other information within your store.

Tags are imported from your store or inventory management system. If you would like to set tags within Inventory Planner, use IP Tags (Inventory Planner tags). IP tags can be set using Bulk Actions.

Title

The variant or product title (name) as defined on your connected sales platform. 

To order

"To Order" defines how many units need to be ordered.

It starts with the replenishment number (the units needed in order to meet forecasted demand) and adjusts for shipment limits and vendor considerations, including MOQ (minimum order quantity) and UOM (units of measurement).

Total available stock 

Found on the Compare Warehouse report, "Total Available Stock" is the sum of available stock from all compared locations.

Available stock is inventory on hand at that location in excess of what will be needed during the days of stock (planning period). This metric is based on the lowest amount of stock needed (based on the forecast) during the days of stock. Any inventory available over that amount is identified as available stock. 

Total forecast

Total forecast is the total number of units forecast to be sold after % adjustments are made in the Edit Forecast section of variants.

Total forecast revenue

Total forecast revenue is the total revenue forecast after % adjustments are made in the Edit Forecast section of variants.

Total revenue will be a positive number for a sale on the date that an order was placed, and a negative number for a return on the date that an order was returned.

Total to transfer

From the Compare Warehouse report, "Total To Transfer" is the replenishment amount for the destination warehouse as long as there is available stock in a source warehouse.

If there is insufficient stock to make a transfer, then the total to transfer will be reduced to the source stock amount.

Tracked inventory (filter)

If an item has tracked inventory, you are monitoring the stock level for that item. Untracked inventory could be drop-shipped or made to order items where you do not need to worry about low or out of stock levels. 

Tracked inventory is set in your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

Transfer in

When creating a transfer from one warehouse to another, "Transfer In" represents the incoming stock to a warehouse. Unlike purchase orders from vendors, warehouse transfers have a source and destination warehouse.

Used in assembly orders

The number of component units (variants) that are on assembly orders in progress (status of "open").

V

Variants

The most granular level of items for sale in your store. Variants include the type of the item such as the color or size when available.

Variants are sometimes referred to as the "child" to the "parent" product. For example, one style of dress would the product, and the dress in small is one variant, medium is another variant, and so on.

Variants in stock

Recorded at aggregated levels (e.g. KPI reports by Vendor or by Category), this metric records how many tracked variants are currently in stock within the aggregated data set.

Vendor

A vendor is the distributor with whom you place orders. For example, Running Shoe Distributors.

Note that in Shopify, the Vendor field on your product page will show as the Brand in Inventory Planner.

Vendor reference

Use this field in your purchase order when the vendor uses a different SKU or code to the one you use in your store.

If your connected sales platform does not have a vendor reference or supplier SKU field, you can add this in the Vendor section of Inventory Planner or import this information using a Single or Multiple Vendor Catalog.

To add Vendor Reference to your purchase order or transfer, click the gear icon while editing your order. 

 Then enable "Vendor Reference".

Vendor product name

A product name given to you by your vendor. This can be noted on purchase orders and is particularly helpful when you and your vendor have different names for the same item. If your connected sales platform does not have a vendor product name or supplier product title field, you can import this information using a Single or Multiple Vendor Catalog.

To add Vendor Product Name to your purchase order or transfer, click the gear icon while editing your order. 

 Then enable "Vendor Product Name".

Visible (filter)

Visible items display on your website.

Some merchants will create the product page without making the item live on their sites, so those would not be visible items.

If an item is visible or not is determined in your sales platform and cannot be edited in Inventory Planner.

W

Warnings

Warnings are notifications which indicate no sales for a product or extended stockouts.

Warehouse

A "warehouse" in Inventory Planner is automatically created based on warehouses or locations set up in your connected platform(s). Warehouses will reflect sales and performance metrics for only that location. Settings such as lead time and days of stock can be configured for each warehouse.

For Amazon connections, you will see an FBA "warehouse" set up for each country in the Amazon region and an FBM warehouse for the entire region. (FBA is "Fulfilled by Amazon," and FBM is "Fulfilled by Merchant".)

Warehouses cannot be deleted from Inventory Planner. Instead, you should disable any warehouse that you will not need for replenishment, planning, and reporting purposes. 

Additional warehouses can be configured within Inventory Planner. A combined warehouse adds together the sales, stock, and/or purchase order information for more than one warehouse. 

An IP warehouse is used when your store has inventory in a location that does not fulfill customer orders directly. This manual warehouse is used to transfer stock to other locations that do handle order fulfillment. 

Wholesale units

The number of units sold on wholesale orders during the date range of the report.

Y

Yesterday sales

The number of units sold the previous calendar day.
