Abstract

Disclosed is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) of Electric Ordering Book (EOB) that provides the actual data of item's sales and weather report in calendar format. To decide the proper ordering number is too difficult because it depends on not only the actual sales data but on weather, day of week and local events and so on. This GUI provides the sales forecast and actual data of last 2 weeks of weather, sales, ordering number, events and loss amount in calender format. This helps the ordering person to decide the proper ordering number at a glance. Figure shows the sales forecast and last 2 weeks actual data of an item. The calender format enables the ordering person to assume the item's sales pattern based on day of week and weather. And it enables all the ordering person to decide proper ordering number regardless one's skill or experiences. 1
