Explanation Needed for the System Generated Storage Bucket Weight Factors in APO

Hello Friends,

I am trying to determine how SAP determines the weighting factors used for the technical storage buckets that data is stored in APO.

In my Scenario we have a Storage Bucket Profile of Weeks, Months and a Posting Period. The posting period is a 5-4-4 week calendar that my client uses for reporting. For example Period 8 2017 is 08/06/2017 -> 09/02/2017. Period 9 is 09/03/2017 -> 09/30/2017.

To complicate things even further, our assigned time stream ZWEEKS has only Mon-Fri as work days. 00:00:00 - 23:59:59.

I run /SAPAPO/OM_TS_BROWSER to look at my technical storage buckets (I have attached an example attachment for August and September.

I understand why the buckets have been created in the way they have because a new technical period has to be created at the beginning of a new week, and calendar month.

What I don't understand is how SAP comes up with the specific values in the weightings column. Why so many decimal places? Why wouldn't they be whole numbers? Can anyone advise? Please see attachment for example
