Stock out prediction: Overview

Stock out prediction gives a clear view of the severity in stock out situations - the percentage of inventory items likely to stock out within the next 7 days - at a glance. For a given inventory item, users can see a trend of forecasted demand to actual demand/consumption, along with a future prediction trend. Inventory instances stocking out (red) or not (green) are shown on a doughnut chart on the top and a map at the bottom shows a distribution of predicted stock out across regions with a drill-down to the district level. At the district level, clicking the bar of a given entity takes users to the inventory view of that entity.
