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

    Best Regards,
