Offset in days - Mange Product Lifecycle app

How does the 'Offset in Days' parameter in 'Manage Product Life cycle' Fiori app work in SAP IBP?

Forecast values for new product depend on forecast values of reference product which in turn depends on Historical Period/offset defined for reference product in 'Manage Forecast Models' Fiori app.

1. Is it used only for simulation purpose within 'Manage Product Life cycle' Fiori app?

2. Does it work if forecast is generated in weeks/months?

    Hello sandeep,

    The offset setting is not just used for simulation purpose. It is used in forecasting and demand sensing for all type of time periods. The number of days are transferred into the corresponding periods (days into weeks or months).

    Please also refer to the help portal about the Manage Product Lifecycle function.

    Thanks.
