Use the parameter bar to select the domain and year and then click Refresh.
Note: Domain refers to the financial entity with which a group of sites is associated; for example, you can view the metrics for all the US sites or all the Thailand sites.
Since the system actually keeps statistics at various summary levels, it is possible to use the development tools in the BI software to produce graphs of purchasing performance for other groupings or dimensions; for example, by commodity grouping at a site or by item type within a domain.
As is always the case, QAD BI includes an extensive data warehouse of associated statistics and information for use in more ad hoc analysis of the OEE measures.
