    Hi Rajan,

    The expiration date of the stock element is earlier than the required shelf life dates of the forecasts. As such, that stock is not peggable to those requirements - under Surplus/Shortage column, you can see the entire stock quantity is surplus and the entire forecast quantities are shortages.

    The Days' Supply calculation takes that into account, so the forecast on 23.01.2017 is not covered and Days' Supply is 7.04.

    Hello Raja, how are you?

    Have you already check the wiki below?

    https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/SCM/%5BTEST+CASE%5D+Example+in+Days%27+Supply+Calculation

    There is a topic called "Example in Days’ Supply Calculation without Alert Threshold" with both days supply types.

    While SAP1 contains stock, requirements and forecasts, SAP2 contains additionally receipts. SAP1 is called Stock Days's Supply; SAP2 is called the Receipt Days' Supply.
