The app displays your dashboard for the current week:

Each row in the table shows predicted usage per part, per site, either for the top 25 parts or for the specific parts you selected. Because the dashboard displays predicted usage per site, you could have multiple rows for the same part if it's stocked at more than one site.

The table includes the following information:

Column

Descriptions

Site

The site you need to purchase this part for.

Part Code

The code for the part you need to purchase. To navigate directly to the part record, click the Part Code link, and then click Go To Part.

A part's code is defined in the Code field of its part record in Supplies > Parts and Supplies).

Part

The name of the part you need to purchase.

A part's name is defined in the Name field of its part record in Supplies > Parts and Supplies.

Category Description

The asset category assigned to the part.

Scheduled Part Usage

The number of parts you'll use in your scheduled maintenance for that site.

Predicted Unplanned Usage

The number of parts we predict you'll use in unplanned maintenance for that site.

Stock on Hand

The number of parts you currently have in stock at that site.

Minimum Stock Quantity

The minimum quantity for this part at that site

A part's minimum quantity is defined (per site) in the Stock Levels Per Location section of its part record in Supplies > Parts and Supplies > Stock.

To learn more about minimum quantities, see Getting started with parts and supplies.

Recommended Purchase Quantity

The number of parts we recommend that you purchase for that site.

This recommendation takes into account the scheduled parts usage, predicted parts usage, stock on hand, and minimum stock quantity.

For example, if you need 5 parts for scheduled maintenance, and we predict that you'll need 15 parts for unplanned maintenance, you would need 20 parts in total. If you have 30 on hand with a minimum stock quantity of 15, we'd recommend that you purchase 5 parts. This would allow you to use the 20 parts for scheduled and predicted unplanned maintenance, while still maintaining the minimum quantity of 15.
