The ‘Supplier Performance’ report can be used to generate a report that lists suppliers together with the number of deliveries received from them, and how many were on time.
This report can be found under the ‘Purchasing’ header in the Jasper Reports suite, and if we select it we will see the following options for running it.
Here we can use the ‘From Date’ and ‘To Date’ to select a date range to report on. We can also select a specific supplier or a range of suppliers to focus on. Leaving suppliers blank will report on orders from all suppliers within the specified date window. Leaving the date filters blank will only report on the current date.
We can also choose to include individual commodity order lines, allowing us to see if specific commodities are often delivered late.
If we run the report as we have set it up in the image above, we will generate one that looks like this:
