Procurement - Events

Introduction

Procurement - Events is the main dashboard where you can analyze the events that take place in the Purchase-to-Pay process regarding purchase order items. Block or change events are regarded as deviations. These are events that you would ideally not want to happen. See the illustration below.

The information displayed in the dashboard is based on the creation date of the purchase order items. The PO creation date filter in the Filters panel enables you to select a period to display the purchase order items that were created in the selected period.

📘

Note

Since the process graph displays all purchase order items which are created within the selected period, the graph can also contain changes to these purchase order items that might be outside the selected period.

Timestamps

Throughput time is the duration between the event end timestamps of two events which follow each other. In this case, waiting time and idle time are also calculated. Processing time is the time actually spent on the event. In this case, waiting time and idle time are not taken in to account.

KPIs

Below is a description of the KPIs that are displayed at the top Procurement - Events dashboard.
