The forecast editor provides a convenient way to review and edit forecast values. It allows easy navigation across the item, location and time hierarchies.
The panel is split in two areas:
The table in the forecast tab is for forecast tunning. Adjustments can be made and will have an immediate impact on the graph above the table.
Here is a description of the fields on the forecast table:
|Total Orders||Quantity of orders in the time bucket, includes both open and closed orders.|
|Open Orders||Quantity of open orders in the time bucket.|
Manual adjustment added to the total order quantity.
This adjustment can be applicable for a) removing exceptional demand outliers from the demand history, or b) intializing the forecast for a new product with the demand history of a similar, existing product.
The forecast calculations add the order adjustment and the total orders as the demand history input for the calculation.
|Forecast Baseline||Statistical forecast generated by the system.|
Manual adjustment of the forecast.
If a value is entered in this row, it completely replaces the baseline forecast proposed by the system.
|Forecast Total||Sum of the baseline forecast and the forecast adjustment.|
|Forecast Net||Forecast quantity not yet consumed by orders.|
|Forecast Consumed||Forecast quantity already consumed by orders.|
|Planned Orders||Quantity of orders planned in this time bucket.|
|Planned Net Forecast||Quantity of net forecast planned in this time bucket.|
