So this weeks challenge comes at the request of a user who has emailed in an idea.

After reviewing with the team we feel there is a great opportunity here for us to learn from what is a typical scenario faced by many businesses in various industries

Things are going to be a little different this week. The ask is very specific you must stick to it as best you can.

There are 3 datasets coming from their own respective sources.

Purchases – This data shows us the date that our business raised a purchase order for a particular product and the amount of the product.

Receiving – This when we as a company took stock of the materials, we have ordered e.g. the products arrived in our warehouse.

Billing – This is the transactional data of what we sold to which customer.

The ask is to produce a single page summary that gives us the below insight into our business.

There are 3 key things we want to see:

1. From us placing a purchase order what is the time elapsed before we receive the goods into our warehouse

2. From us receiving goods what is the time elapsed before we are billing for the goods

3.Analyse the Billing

Note: Remember that the data is coming from three different sources so there is no existing keys or relationships between the tables
