Hi All,

Trying to understand a mechanism/Logic to arrive into the the period length for "Fwd consumption per." and "Bwd consumption per." for Planning with Strategy Group 40 in an ECC environment.

1. Is there a logical way to decide the number of days to be used these two parameters?

2. Is there any impact, if we use lengthy periods (like 60, 120 days) with these two parameters?

3. If I think along, for say, a "Fwd consumption per." of 14 days, on top of a fairly consistent weekly demand, would support the production to cover 50% sales increase during the current month (On a Forward consumption only scenario). Am I correct in interpreting it this way?

It is completely depends upon your business lets if you want all salesorder should be considered in Than use maximum period of 999

If you want consider some salesorder than as per business requirment consider 60 or 120 Days.
