Cycle time in days to resolve adjustments

This measure calculates number of days it takes to resolve adjustments. An adjustment is when an amount is changed due to an error/miscommunication between two parties. Common examples involve freight and handling charges, discount terms, price, and other similar items. It is a Cycle Time measure that helps companies analyze the duration of the "manage and process adjustments/deductions" process from beginning to end.
