FIFO Cost Lot Tracking

Zoho Inventory employs the First In First Out principle to track goods. In this report, you can view a detailed account of all the items going out against the items coming in as per the FIFO rule during a given period. You can run this report for all your items or a specific item of your choice.

Scenario: Consider an item A whose opening stock and opening stock value is 20 units at 10 USD/unit. You purchase an additional 10 units at 12 USD/unit against Bill #1 which makes it a total of 30 units available for sale in your inventory. Now you receive an order requesting 25 units of item A. As soon as you send an invoice for these 25 pieces of item A, the system matches the first 20 units against the opening stock of 20 and calculates its value as 2010 USD = 200 USD. The remaining 5 units are matched against the 10 units from Bill #1 and its value is 512 USD = 60 USD, leaving you with five other units of item A from Bill #1 worth 12 USD/unit.

ABC Classification

The ABC Classification report is an inventory categorization report that groups your items into three classes, namely A, B, and C, based on the revenue they generate and its impact on your business for a specific period.

ABC Design image
Class Description
A This class consists of the most revenue-generating items. These items contribute heavily to the overall profit of your company. The items listed under this class are critical for your business and require your complete focus to ensure that these items are never out of stock.
B This class consists of moderately selling items that don’t have a low-impact as class C but not as crucial as class A. However, based on the shifting demands, they move into class A or class C.
C This class consists of the bottom-of-the-barrel items that are usually surplus but contribute the least to your revenue. Since they take up most of the inventory space and holding costs, they do not require replenishing unless they are out of stock.

Knowing this information will help you allocate resources to each item efficiently based on its impact.

To view this report:

Note: If the number of items in your organization exceeds 1000, you cannot view this report within Zoho Inventory. You will have to export the report in your preferred format and view it on your device.

ABC Report
Field Description
Item Name Under this header, all the items available in your organization are listed.
Cumulative Value The Cumulative Value of an item varies based on the filter you choose. In a nutshell, Cumulative Value represents the total contribution of each item.

The Usage Value filter will calculate the Cumulative Value of the items based on the total number of times an item was sold multiplied by its cost.

The Quantity filter will calculate the Cumulative Value of the items based on the number of times an item was sold.
Cumulative Share Cumulative Share represents the percentage of cumulative value that each item contributes to the total cumulative value.
Current Class Based on the percentage you have given for each class and the cumulative share for each item, the class assigned to all the items will be listed here.

Customize Report

You can customize this report according to your business needs using the Customize Report option.

To customize this report:

Customize ABC Report

Here, you can customize the percentage limit for each class, choose the filter using which the items are classified, and select the date range. You can also add any advanced filters if you want to.

Note: The sum of the percentage limits of the three classes should not exceed 100.

Let’s understand how the percentage limit that you give here affects the classification of each item.

After the Cumulative Share of each item is calculated, the items are arranged in descending order. This means that the item with the highest Cumulative Share will be at the top of the report.

Let’s say that you have set the percentage limit for Class A, B, and C as 40, 40, and 20, respectively.

If the Cumulative Share of Item 1 is 39 and Item 2 is 35, Zoho Inventory will put Item 1 under Class A. The calculations will be repeated from the beginning. Here, 39 + 35 is 74, which is less than 80. Now, Zoho Inventory will put Item B under Class B. If the next item, Item 3, has a Cumulative Share of 7, the total sum of the Cumulative Share of all the items will then be 81. Since the total sum is more than 80, Zoho Inventory will put this item under Class C.

To sum up the example above, the first set of items whose Cumulative Shares add up to 40 will be categorized as Class A. For categorizing Class B items, the Cumulative Shares of the items are summed up from the beginning, and the set of items whose Cumulative Shares add up to 80 are grouped. All items in this group that do not belong to Class A are classified as Class B. The rest of the items in the report will be classified as Class C.

Export Report

To export a report:

Export ABC Report

The report will be exported in your preferred format.

Other than having it saved offline, the exported file can also be used to get more insights. Let’s see how:

Import Report

Note: Before you import the report, ensure that you have moved the Previous Class column from the Available Column to Selected Column. To do this, go to Customize Report > Show / Hide Columns.

Importing a previously exported report and comparing it with the current report shows how your items have performed over a certain period. If an item in Class C in the previous report increased its sales, it would be moved to Class B or even Class A based on the percentage of improvement in the current report. Knowing these details will help you shift your focus on these items. To import a report:

After the file is imported, the class from the imported file will be shown under Previous Class in the current report.
