DIO - using COGS or Sales as Denominator

So can you please confirm that in the 2007 NWC Study as a denominator to calculate DIO COGS instead of Sales have been used? Thanks and best regards Stefan

Definition of DIO and DPO

The article gave the wrong definitions about two concepts: DIO=Average Invetory/(CGS/365) NOT (Total revenue/365) per day. The same goes with DPO.

Data for WC and DPO

I see comment that European Companies are making advancements in Working Capital, yet cannot find the survey results in your CFO Europe magazine. Where can I refer to that data and do you have any industry benchmarks for DPO for Europe and Asia. Thanks
