The Methods

Learn the difference between ABC and XYZ methodology.

ABC Analysis

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.

XYZ Analysis

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.

Result Analysis

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.
