# Create an expression for calculating On Time In Full

Hi,

I have done my first simple QW report to measure Delivery Performance for my Suppliers. As a first attempt I did a simple if expression that compared confirmed date with Good receit date. This works fine and looks as follows:

If

((ConfirmedDate-GRdate) >0, 0, 1) as DP,

Basically this will mean that all early deliveries will be measured as on time. I would now like to alter that expression so that it provides an On Time measure with no tolerance for early deliveries. My attempt was as follows:

If

((ConfirmedDate-GRdate) >0, 0, 1
OR
IF((ConfirmedDate-GRdate) <0, 0, 1)) as DP,

I have obviously done something stupid... Could you give me advice on how to correct or maybe give me an alternative solution?

As an extension to this I would also like to add an expression that also take into account the quantity delivered. I would like to do it with an expression containing AND as follows:

Kind regards

Henrik

... the AND expression I had in mind was:

AND(GRquantity=OrderQuantity)

Thanks

With  no fault tolerence you can do something like this.

1: If ((ConfirmedDate-GRdate)=0, 1) as DP,

2: If ((ConfirmedDate-GRdate)=0 AND (GRquantity - OrderQuantity=0), 1) as DP,

Hello Michael,

Thank you. What if I wanted a tolerance, say +/- 1 day in the expression. Is there a function where I could use the absolute value, like in Excel: Abs(...)? Any other idea?

Thanks

Henrik

Hi

This will pass the deliveries in the tolerances defined by variables vDateTolerance and vQuantityTolerance:

If((Fabs(ConfirmedDate-GRdate) <= vDateTolerance)

And (Fabs(GRquantity - OrderQuantity) <= vQuantityTolerance), 1, 0) As DP
