Indicator definition is essential for manufacturing system performance evaluation. When the relevant decision system is hierarchical, so must be the indicators. Proposes an indicator ‐ the stock profile, which fits multi‐level decision making for time relevant aspects. After a short survey of the problem, recalls basics of stock profiles, then presents their adaptation to multi‐level decision making and illustrates this with a flow‐shop production case study.
