It is calculated by dividing accounts receivable by sales and multiplying this by the number of days in the respective period.
Days Sales Outstanding. 1. A calculation that expresses the average time in days, that receivables are outstanding; 2. A measure of the effect of sales terms on the operating cycle of a business. Although commonly used as a measure for credit department efficiency, it can be very misleading for that purpose, due to such factors as dating terms and selling cycles.

Detailed Supplementary Objective. A Detailed Supplementary Objective (DSO) is a NASA-sponsored investigation that is performed voluntarily by the crew and designed to require minimal crew time, power and stowage. Biomedical DSOs focus on operational concerns and involve data collection before, during, and after flight. Early DSOs focused on human adaptation to microgravity, especially space motion sickness. More recently, studies have been expanded to include cardiovascular deconditioning, muscle loss, changes in coordination and balance strategies, radiation exposure, pharmacokinetics and changes in the body's biochemistry. Key hardware and procedures have been tested and verified as DSOs prior to use in support of more costly, complex life sciences investigations.
Direct Support Organization [An organization authorized by statute and the Board of Regents to "support" activities of the universities. Examples of DSO's are: foundations, alumni associations, and athletic associations.
