Inventory Graph

Table time chart windows overview

Menu Bar Window

The inventory graph is a table time chart that shows inventory quantity of each item. This graph shows changes in the inventory quantity of each item in graphical and numerical format, enabling you to check future theoretical inventory levels.


Chart content

The inventory graph is primarily for displaying fluctuations in the existing quantity of each item, but by changing the 'Item row content' property (under the Chart content tab) the:

Inventory (quantity)
Production
Consumption
Shipped
Received

quantities can also be displayed.


The inventory graph can also display group totals, by setting the 'Inventory graph summary method' property (under the Inventory graph tab). The available options are:

None
Start value
End value
MIN value
MAX value
Average value
Difference

The default is None.
For example, if the Item row content property is set to 'Production graph' and the summary method is Difference, the graph will show only the change in production relative to the previous day (or whatever the chart's unit term is set to).


The appearance of the inventory graph can also be affected by the 'Inventory fluctuation method' property of the item.

Instantaneous - The amount shown on the graph will change by the full quantity immediately when an operation finishes (for production) or starts (for consumption graph)
Linear - The amount shown on the graph changes as the operation progresses.


When there are operations in process and setting the inventory list, And the 'Inventory fluctuation method' property of the item is not Instantaneous, there may be error occurred. See here for more details.


By default, the text shown on the inventory graph is simply the quantity of the item. By changing the 'Number format' (Inventory graph tab) property of the chart display settings, you can customize this format to for example, show the text as a monetary value of the inventory.
By changing the 'Number format' (Inventory graph tab) property of the chart display settings, you can customize this format to for example, show the text as a monetary value of the inventory.
