Inventory obsolescence as a percentage of total inventory

This measure calculates the percentage of total inventory that is at the end of its product life cycle and has not seen any sales or usage for a set period of time usually determined by the industry. It is part of a set of Process Efficiency measures that help companies optimize the performance of their "produce/manufacture/deliver product" process by minimizing waste and refining resource consumption.

Process efficiency represents how well a process converts its inputs into outputs. A process that converts 100% of the inputs into outputs without waste is more efficient than one that converts a similar amount of inputs into fewer outputs.
