key performance indicator
A financial or non-financial measure of a factor that is critical to a company's success. For example, if a company operates in an industry where customers have little or no tolerance for product defects (for example, in a pharmaceutical or medical equipment business), then defects per thousand units produced would be a key performance indicator for that company. Typically abbreviated as KPI.
