Floating date of interest - administration delay

Hello everyone,

first thing first, sorry for my English.

I have an SQL table (direct query) with manufacturing batches, states (pre-production administrations, production, packing, etc.), time stamps (since, to) , planed terms (how long the batch can be in the state - for example every batch has 3 workdays to done packing) and others. SQL table autoaticly refreshes once a day.

I need to visualise all batches in delay, in timeline (day by day). I did this before when delays were exported every day, but you can imagine the size of data, which were multiplying every day.


This is how the visualisation should look like:



In report, there must be possibility to switch between SUM of days in delay and SUM of batches in delay.


Columns in SQL table:

  • batch
  • state
  • state since (date)
  • state to (date)
  • plan (for example 3 days to switch state)
  • days of delay (final delay)


In the SQL table, there are batches with states without delays as well.


Could you please help me, how to make this happen?

a) day of interest (day on timeline - X axis)

b) delays of each batch in this day


Thank you very much.

Hi @Fishtron,


Here I made a sample as below. You can refer to the following steps.


1. Enter the sample data and create the calculated columns as below.



state = IF(DATEDIFF(Table1[state since],Table1[state to],DAY)>Table1[plan],"delay","on time")
delay days = IF(Table1[state]="delay",DATEDIFF(Table1[state since],Table1[state to],DAY)-Table1[plan],BLANK())


2. Create the measure as below.



count = CALCULATE(COUNT(Table1[batch]),FILTER(Table1,Table1[state]="delay"))
sumdays = CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[delay days]))


Then we can get the result as below.




For more details, please check the pbix as attached. If it doesn't meet your requirement, kindly share your pbix to me.

Thank you very much for your respond Frank,

unfortunately I didn't explained my problem clearly.


I need to see amount of delays (count of days and count of delayed batches) in two separeted graphs day by day (days are X axis).

I hope images below will explain that.Workflow & report explanation.JPG


This is how my SQL direct query looks like:




There are about 30 states but not all of them are interesting for this report so I will filter them.
