What are we measuring: Items in your inventory with a negative quantity

Why are we measuring this: While the ability to go into the negative is a handy tool in the short term, we should not be ending months with negative inventory. These skew inventory value.

Scoring: 0-24, 35-49, 50+

Recreate Metric: Purchasing Module – Inventory Tab – Choose inventory location – Select Allocation from sub header – Filter: Quantity Less than 0.

Common Issues:

  • Not doing quantity on hand adjustments on a regular basis to keep inventory clean


  • Make sure you are doing hard counts for your inventory at least once a quarter and making quantity on hand adjustments
