Stock Coverage (ABC-XYZ)

by Tableau


The Tableau Accelerator for Stock Coverage (ABC-XYZ) gives you a jumpstart to data-driven insights for managing your inventory.

Inventory managers can use this Accelerator to identify products at risk (rupture and overstock), define the right stock/security stock coverage, and optimize production volumes to optimize inventory.

The ABC-XYZ analysis algorithm classifies your products and then recommends how to handle:

  • Degree of automation replenishment processes
  • Buffer Stock
  • Inventory Control

Products are classified by:

  • Volume → ABC (high, medium, low consumption)
  • Volume Predictability / Reliability → XYZ (Linear demand, Unpredictable demand, Variable demand)

Each combination (AX, BX, CY..) implies a suggested way to manage inventory: identify products at risk (rupture and overstock), define the right stock / security stock coverage, optimize production volumes
