Manage Inventory Health overview

Manage Inventory Health combines the best of the Manage Excess Inventory and Inventory Age pages, giving you the ability to manage your excess and aged inventory in one place and use a variety of metrics to help you make decisions about repricing, advertising, or removals.

This page can help you optimize your inventory within your storage or restock limits, reduce costs, and improve your Inventory Performance Index (IPI) score.

Page features

The page offers many features to help you make the right decisions about your excess and aged inventory.

  • Customize your metrics : Click Table preferences on the right of the page to choose among metrics across sales, fees, pricing, and excess and aged inventory, and to view units that are in working, shipped, or receiving status. These metrics can help you make better-informed decisions about your inventory.
    • Learn about the metrics: Hover over the "i" icon for each metric to see the definition and other important information.
    • Sort the data:
  • Filter for inventory similarities: Choose among multiple filters to group products with similar inventory characteristics, including inventory age, storage type, and product condition. These filters can make it easier to decide on and take recommended actions.
    • Sort by inventory age: Choose an inventory age range from the drop-down menu in the filter bar. Then click the up or down arrow in the Inventory age column.
  • View up to 250 ASINs per page: Spend less time clicking through multiple pages to review your products’ inventory health by changing your default product quantity per page. Use the drop-down menu at the bottom of the page to choose the number of products that you want to see on the page.
  • Search for similar products to evaluate inventory performance: Use the Search feature to find items that have similar product characteristics – for example, "blue" or "12-pack." You can then sort, filter, and take action on these items.

What Manage Inventory Health can help you do

  • Avoid aged inventory and reduce storage costs: We recommend maintaining enough inventory to cover 30 to 60 days of your expected sales over the same time period. FBA sell-through is a good metric to help you maintain this level of cover. Aim to maintain at least a 2.0+ sell-through on your products.
  • Optimize within your storage limits: Add the Storage volume metric to your page from Table preferences, which will allow you to sort by your largest-volume products. Filter your products by Storage type, find the products that have the highest number of excess units, the lowest sell-through rate, or both, and then take action on those products to optimize your inventory within your storage limits.
  • Optimize within your restock limits: Filter your products by Storage type, sort your products by largest excess-unit quantity or lowest sell-through rate, and then take action on those products to optimize your inventory within your restock limits.

Frequently asked questions

What units are shown in the Inventory age column view?

The Inventory age column includes available plus reserved units minus units that are pending removal.

What is the estimated long-term storage fee?

Inventory that has been in a fulfillment center for 365 days or more is subject to a long-term storage fee. The fee is assessed on the 15th of each month. Estimated long-term storage fee shows the number of units that would be subject to the long-term storage fee and the estimated fee amount as of the next charge date, assuming no further sales. For more information, go to Long-term storage fees.

Why are my sales summary amounts and units different from my sales on the orders detail page?

Manage Inventory Health shows sales shipped, and the orders detail page shows sales ordered. Manage Inventory Health sales and units data rely on sources that cause a one-day delay, whereas orders detail data is in real time.

Why is my total storage volume by storage type in the Inventory Age report different from my storage type usage (aka storage volume) in my storage monitor on the Inventory Performance dashboard?

Storage volume in the Inventory Age report equals the available inventory. Storage type usage shown on your storage monitor equals the available inventory plus unfulfillable and reserved units minus units that are pending removal.
