Learn the difference between ABC and XYZ methodology.
ABC analysis is an inventory categorization method that consists in dividing items into three categories, A, B, and C. Category A represents the most valuable items, while category C represents the least valuable ones.
The XYZ Analysis is a way to classify inventory items according to the variability of their demand. X-items have little demand variation, while Z-items have high demand variation.
Understand the results of ABC/XYZ Analysis.
- Articles are classified based on their volume (A, B, C categories), and based on the variability of their demand (X, Y, Z categories).
- With the combination of the two methods, the items are being grouped to 9 categories, from AX to CZ.
- You can visualize the classes and belonging articles.
- Analyze the most important KPIs for each class and each item, such as share and variation coefficient.
