Business Problem

Managing a product portfolio demand and supply is complex and challenging. Understanding demand importance and variability is inevitable to better manage resources and achieve the right focus and customer satisfaction.

LOGIBLOX Solution

With LOGIBLOX you get a great template to conduct ABC/XYZ analysis with ease and derive valuable actions. By combining the ABC and XYZ segmentation analyses, companies can gain a more comprehensive view of their goods and better understand their customers' needs. Unlike the traditional three-category ABC analysis, the ABC/XYZ analysis provides nine categories for classifying materials, goods, and consumption. This analysis is especially crucial in material management and helps optimize inventory in the long term.

This method provides a more detailed view of an enterprise's product assortment and allows for tailoring the assortment more specifically to the market's needs. With precise sales analysis, even articles with unforeseen sales can be quickly identified and taken into account. Combining both methods is an effective tool for rationalizing inventory and achieving an optimal ordering rhythm for products, which can prevent excessive capital commitments and write-offs. The combination of ABC and XYZ analyses establishes a link between the value of individual goods and the temporal need or consumption process of each item. From this, valuable insights can be drawn for future assortment planning.

Here are the nine classifications at a glance:

  • XA: High value items with continuous demand
  • XB: Medium value items with continuous demand
  • XC: Low value items with continuous demand
  • YA: High value items with intermittent demand
  • YB: Medium value items with intermittent demand
  • YC: Low value items with intermittent demand
  • ZA: High value items with very rare demand
  • ZB: Medium value items with very rare demand
  • ZC: Low value items with very rare demand
