The following sections describe the key performance indicators (KPIs) in the General ledger cube.

The KPIs in the General ledger cube depend on account categories. For information about account categories, see Main account categories and analysis cubes.

An asterisk (*) indicates that the KPI calculations use accumulated amounts. Accumulated amounts, such as some period-to-date amounts, are not stored in the Microsoft Dynamics AX database. For example, to calculate a period-to-date amount, all the transactions from the beginning of the fiscal calendar to the end of the previous period are totaled. Then all the amounts from the beginning of the fiscal calendar to the current date are totaled. The difference between these two amounts is the period-to-date amount.

You can use the information in the following table to help verify the information in your KPIs. Export your chart of accounts to Office Excel and verify that the accounts that should be included in the KPIs are assigned to the correct ledger account category.

KPI

Calculation

Accounts payable turnover *

[Cost of Goods Sold (Reference ID = 35) + (Ending Inventory (Reference ID = 5) for period - Beginning Inventory (Reference ID = 5) for period)] / [Beginning Accounts Payable (Reference ID = 15) + Ending Accounts Payable (Reference ID = 15) / 2]

NoteNote

* Only the Inventory and Accounts Payable parts of this KPI are accumulated.

Accounts receivable turnover *

[Sales (Reference ID = 33) *-1] - Sales Returns and Discounts (Reference ID = 34) / [Beginning Accounts Receivable (Reference ID = 4) + Ending Accounts Receivable (Reference ID = 4) / 2]

NoteNote

* Only the Accounts Receivable part of this KPI is accumulated.

Average days to pay *

Ending Accounts Payable (Reference ID = 15) balance for the period / [Cost of Goods Sold (Reference ID = 35) + (Ending Inventory (Reference ID = 5) for the period - Beginning Inventory (Reference ID=5) for the period)] * Number of days in the period

NoteNote

* Only the Accounts Payable and Inventory parts of this KPI are accumulated.

Average collection period *

Accounts Receivable (Reference ID = 4) / Average Daily Sales (Average Daily Sales = Total Sales for the year to date (Reference ID = 33) *-1 / Number of days in fiscal year to date)

NoteNote

* Only the Accounts Receivable part of this KPI is accumulated.

Cash position *

Cash (Reference ID = 1) + Cash Equivalents (Reference ID = 2)

NoteNote

* Accumulation applies to all calculations.

Cash ratio *

Cash Equivalents (Reference ID = 2) + Cash (Reference ID = 1) / (Accounts Payable (Reference ID = 15) + Notes Payable (Reference ID = 16) + Current Maturities on Long Term Debt (Reference ID = 17) + Taxes Payable (Reference ID = 18) + Interest Payable (Reference ID = 19) + Dividends Payable (Reference ID = 20) + Leases Payable (Current) (Reference ID = 21) + Sinking Fund Payable (Current) (Reference ID = 22) + Other Current Liabilities (Reference ID = 23))
