Weighted Average / Weighted Moving Average - source of weights question

Hi,

I had a question regarding the IBP configuration of the Weighted Moving Average and Weighted Average forecast profiles. It requires a Source of Weights key figure, which stores the weights by which IBP multiplies the time series data. I'm not sure how to configure this key figure in the system in order to create these forecast profiles. Is this just a stored key figure that needs to be created? Please let me know any information that would help.

Thanks,

Melanie

    Hello Sanjeev,

    There is no pre-defined Key Figures with the purpose of using them as "Source of Weights". But there are indeed some Key Figures that may be used in sample Planning Area SAP6 (Demand), such as: ADJDELIVQTYPROFILEWEIGHT, CONSENSUSDEMANDPROFILEWEIGHT, FUTUREORDEREDQTYWEIGHT, etc.
    You can find some information on Sample Planning Area for Demand: Planning Levels and Key Figures.

    In addition, you may also create a Key Figure for this specific purpose. It just needs to be a Stored KF. You may also add calculations as required by your business.

    Best regards,
    Matheus
