What is a Measure, and how is it different from a Metric?

Metrics in Flow generally represent “what you are measuring”.  Examples include:

  • Production volume
  • Water consumption
  • Energy consumption
  • Cost of production
  • Product Quality
  • Environmental Compliance

Measures in Flow are reporting points-of-interest (or KPIs) which relate to these Metrics.  They provide more context than their parent Metrics.  Using “Production volume” as an example, typical Measures would be:

  • Line 1 Volume Produced (hl)
  • Line 1 Volume to Energy Ratio (hl/kW)
  • Line 1 Volume Produced (hl)
  • Line 1 Volume to Energy Ratio (hl/kW)
  • Line 1 Volume Produced (hl)
  • Line 1 Volume to Energy Ratio (hl/kW)

A Measure in Flow is identified by its Hierachical Name, Unit of Measure and Time Interval.
