Avg. throughput time

The average throughput time between the first and the last event for invoices.

Percentage first time right

The percentage of unique invoices that only have main events and for which the final payment is done, related to the total number of invoices.

Total value (invoiced)

Total value of the invoices.

Invoices

Total number of invoices.

Invoices

With the Invoices dashboard item you can analyze the invoices in more detail.

You can select various attributes of the invoices and create different contexts by selecting metrics from the metric selector. See the illustration below.

Note

Metrics in the Purchase-to-Pay Discovery Accelerator never take Invoices with missing data into account when the metric is calculated.
For example, if an invoice does not have a value for the selected attribute and the metric calculates the average over this attribute, the Invoices is not taken into account.

Distribution

The Distribution chart enables you to analyze the frequency of purchase order items based on the Invoice value, the Invoice processing time, Throughput time (end to end), or Throughput time (invoice creation to payment). See the illustration below.

The Details button imageimage enables you to analyze invoices in more detail and opens the Details - Invoices

Submitting Automation Ideas

When you identify a bottleneck in the Purchase-to-Pay process while monitoring, for example when a manual activity takes a long time to be executed, you might want to send a request to automate the activity to UiPath Automation Hub. You can do this directly from the process graph. See Sending Automation Ideas to UiPath Automation Hub for more information.

Note

This function is only available if UiPath Process Mining is set up for integration with UiPath Automation Hub.
