Description topics

Orders (intake and placed)
The weighted response rates to the questions:
- "The value of the total orders received in the last three months
increased, remained unchanged or decreased? '.
- "The value of the orders we expect to place with suppliers in the next
three months will increase, remain unchanged or decrease? "
- "The total order book shows - during normal working hours - .. months
of work? "
- "The total order position, we assess, given the time of year
as (too) large, normal or (too) small? "
- "The foreign order books, we assess, given the time of the years,
as (too) large, normal or (too) small? "
The order book is presented as an index (September 2011 = 100),
representing the number of months of work in hand, including any work
for bringing the stocks up to an appropriate level.
Value of orders received last 3 months
Weighted response rates to the question:
- "The value of total orders received in the last three months
has increased, remained unchanged or decreased? '.
Order intake increased
Weighted response rate of producers indicating that the value of the
orders received in the last three months has increased.
Order intake remained unchanged
Weighted response rate of producers indicating that the value of
orders received in the last three months has remained unchanged.
Order intake decreased
Weighted response rate of producers indicating that the value of the
orders received in the last three months has decreased.
Not applicable
The weighted response rate of producers who consider orders
reveived not to be relevant for their enterprise plus the weighted
rate of producers who were not asked the question.
Balance order intake
The weighted response rate of producers who reported an
increase in orders received minus the weighted response rate of producers that reported a decrease. This balance gives insight into the development of value of the total orders received in the last three months.
Orders placed next three months
Weighted response rates to the question:
- "The value of the orders we expect to place with suppliers in the next
three months will increase, remain unchanged or decrease? "

Weighted reponse rate of producers who expect the value of
the purchase orders in the next three months will decrease.
Not applicable
The weighted response rate of producers who consider
the value of purchase orders as not relevant for their enterprise
plus the weighted response rate of producers who were not asked
the question.
Balance purchase orders
The weighted response rate of producers with an expected
increase of purchase orders minus the weighted response rate of
producers with an expected decrease. This balance provides insight
into the expected evolution of purchase orders in the next three months.
Value of export orders next 3 months
weighted response rates to the question:
- "The value of the total export orders received in the next three
months will increase, remain unchanged or decrease? '.

orders as not relevant for their enterprise plus the weighted response
rate of producers who were not asked the question.

increase of export orders minus the weighted response rate of
producers with an expected decrease. This balance provides insight
into the expected evolution of export orders in the next three months.

Weighted response rates to the question:
- "The total order position for export orders, we assess, given the time
of year as large, normal or small? "
Position export orders large
Weighted response rate of producers who consider, the level of export
orders, given the time of year, as large.

The weighted response rate of producers who consider the level of export orders for their enterprise as not relevant plus the weighted response rate of producers who were not asked the question.
Balance assessment export orders
The weighted response rate of producers indicating that the export
order position is large, minus the rate of business who consider
it is small. This balance represents, compared to the previous balances,
the current assessment of satisfaction of the producers about their
export order books.
