The "top influencing factors" and recommendations provided on your Inventory Performance Dashboard are intended to help you identify ways to improve your inventory efficiency, but these may not align with your IPI score for a few reasons. First, the Inventory Performance Index is updated weekly based on your inventory’s performance over the last three months, meaning it relies on continual inventory management over several weeks to see improvements. The top influencing factors’ metrics represent a snapshot of your performance today and are not representative of your performance over time. Second, actions taken today will take time to have an impact on performance. For example, creating a sale will only become effective once the product begins selling at a higher rate. For this reason, it may take several weeks before actions have an impact that is reflected in the IPI score.
