Why should Days on Hand: Raw Materials be measured?
Days on Hand: Raw Materials measures the number of manufacturing days before all raw materials on hand are used. High values for this KPI may suggest that the company is not accurately forecasting the demand for its products or that the company does not have an effective inventory carrying strategy. A low value for this KPI is generally preferred due to the high inventory carrying costs related to storing raw materials in warehouses. However, if raw material stock is too low, companies risk losing out on sales due to stock-outs, so safe levels of raw materials inventory must be maintained.
