Customer Side Inventory

Hi Experts,

We are executing heuristics, however, there is a need that the inventory that is present at the customer side has to be considered during execution of heuristics. This Customer Side Inventory needs to net the value in Consensus Demand KF. Is there any KF in IBP at PERPRODCUST level that can be used to perform this function? Consensus Demand is the only demand source in the entire network.

We are currently using 1705 version of IBP

Hi Sourojit,

We do not have a standard key figure in IBP to fulfill your requirement. You can create a new key figure and copy the customer side inventory and write the calculations, simple example below,

1. Consensus Demand in-network for heuristics run

2. Create new key figure "CUSTOMERINVENTORY"

3. Upload the customer inventory key figure values to "CUSTOMERINVENTORY" key figure

4. Write the calculation with the help of helper key figure and derive the consensus demand for Heuristic input

Hi Lingaiah,

Thanks for the update, however, there may be cases where inventory is more than demand in a time bucket and in those cases reduction of demand over subsequent periods are necessary. With Simple configuration we can only cater cases where Inventory <= Demand. Thus, is there any way to achieve this without increasing the system complexity?

Hi Sourojit,

If inventory is more than demand you need to write the calculation to consumer demand.
