The Cash Flow Protection Dashboard will help you to understand how move outs in your POs affect your business. This can help you better understand trends in when changes are happening and how late or missing inventory is affecting your ability to do business.
Let's Take a Look

Filters can help you to change the data based on how your company sees value. You are able to change the time periods, PO spend or line groupings, and PO statuses. If you are looking for more information on the filters and what they mean, you can see in depth information on each filter here.
2) PO Lines Moved Out
The number of active PO lines where the current due date is more then one month (or one day if day grouping selected) greater than the original due date. "Active" is defined as not cancelled, completed, or deleted. This will help you to identify where there are changes to your POs to help get a high level understanding of how PO changes are affecting your business.
3) PO Spend Moved Out
The sum of PO Spend for active PO lines where the current due date is more then one month (or one day if day grouping selected) greater than the original due date. By looks at the costs you can start to understand how PO changes are affecting your capital. Items not received on time can affect warehouse space, and whether or not you are able to manufacture your items, or whether you have to switch to manufacturing a different item. When you start to see what changes are costing you it can help leadership to understand what constant changes are doing to incoming and outgoing revenue.
4) Quantity Ordered Minus Quantity Received
This is the difference between received and ordered quantities trending by the original due date on the purchase order. It allows you to see what inventory is coming in versus what is delayed. This chart can help you to understand where your inventory is and what it is costing you.
5) Move In and Moves Out By Month
This graphic can help you easily see what is going on with your purchase orders and get an easy to understand visual showcasing early, on time and late orders.
