Performance to Promise Dates: When  a Distributor places a Purchase Order against a Manufacturer, he has certain expectations on when he will receive the items ordered. His original expectation is the OnTime Delivery Metric. However, the manufacturer may give him a revised estimate as to when they expect to fill the order. The manufacturers promise is called the "Performance to Promise Date Metric".

Example:  ABC Company Orders 2 Products on Purchase Order #1234, with a Requested Ship Date of June 10.
The first item is in-stock and ships on June 10th..
The second item is on backorder. The manufacturer estimates that the 2nd item will ship by July 1.
The item is manufactured and ships out on June 28.
The Performance to Promise Date is 100% (items ship ontime or early)
*However, if the 2nd item does not ship till July 2nd, then it's late. The Performance to Promise Date is 50%.


Our goal is to guide companies that are looking to optimize their Supply Chain. Originally, we intended on answering questions about Inventory Control, Sourcing, Manufacturing, Distribution and Supply Chain Metrics. However, we currently do not have the resources to answer individual questions.
