On-Time Delivery (OTD) is a key performance indicator (KPI) that calculates the number of sales or projects delivered to clients or stakeholders on or before the deadline given. It is an important metric to measure operational effectiveness, customer satisfaction, and overall success in organizations including production, distribution, and services. Essentially, it measures how successfully you keep your word to buyers.

Here's how the OTD is calculated:

OTD Rate = (Number of orders delivered on time / Total number of orders delivered) x 100%.

A high OTD suggests that supply chains are trustworthy and a positive interaction with customers. On the other hand, low OTD can lead to dissatisfied customers, lost sales, and a negative image.
