Getting Started

The Shelf Extensions reports offer the on-hand value of products by inventory date. The values are the same as Beginning or Ending Inventory in Cost of Goods -based reporting.

For example:

If you enter an inventory count of “15 Each” for apples and there are 10 apples Per Case, and the cost of those apples were $20 Per Case then the “Extended Cost of the product on my Shelf” would be 1.5 Cases. This brings the total to $30. ($20 x 1.5 = $30)

Download Shelf Extensions

Decision Logic offers a Shelf Extension export that can be viewed and downloaded from the shelf extension page.  

  • To download the summary report into an excel document, select Export Summary.

    • The Summary Report will sum the extended values per COGS Category.

  • To download the detailed report into an excel document, select Export Detail.

    • The Detail Report will show values per ingredient.

Clients most often utilize these reports at the end of a month, period, quarter, or year. Therefore, keeping these numbers low helps ensure proper product rotations for freshness.


Shelf Extension Requirements 

Shelf extensions are used in all ingredient level reports in Decision Logic.

This section reviews each step required to get extended dollar values to report on Shelf Extension, COGS, IvA, TvA, and Unit Pricing on Manual Receives.

If all of the required steps are not completed, you will fail to get complete and accurate reporting. Therefore, having the setup done accurately is imperative for quality reporting.

1. The Ingredient has to be added to an Inventory Set that the store is assigned to.

2. The Bid File must be mapped to an Ingredient.

3. The Bid File must be added to an order guide that the store is assigned to.

4. The Bid File item has a price greater than $0.00.

5. The Bid File item has an Inventory Multiplier and a Recipe Multiplier greater than 0.

6. An order must be received that includes an item that is mapped to the ingredient.

Shelf Extensions Validation

Note: the Shelf Extension price will report after the 1st inventory on your Cost of Goods Sold report as long as a bid file is mapped to the ingredient and included in an order received before the 1st inventory for that product.

Locking in the received price will allow the associated cost to extend.

If there is no order received, the item will still be included in COGS and IvA reporting after the second inventory and purchases have been received, assuming all setup requirements have been met.

Shelf Extension Corrections

After making any shelf extension requirement changes, you will want to request a COGS update to correct COGS, IvA, TvA, and Shelf extension reporting. The COGS update will reflect any changes made and update reporting to use in the current bid file information.
