Storage Time Profile Level vs Time periods for Base level of Key Figures

Hello Experts,

I have a couple of queries regarding Time profile levels. Request your inputs:

1. I am using a copy of Unified Planning Area. In that planning area the time profile has Storage Time Profile Level as 'Day'. Attaching snapshot.

What is the use of this storage level? Does this mean i can have data in daily buckets?

2. Related to the first query, the follow up query is - whenever we maintain any Lead Time in master data (eg. MDT Customer Source of Supply), the definition states "Expressed as a number of periods of the base planning level for receipt key figures".

If the master data is dependent on the base level then what is the use of the Storage Time Profile Level in the planning area? Say for example, if i want to maintain lead time of Customer Source of Supply in Days, do i have to change the planning levels of the Key Figures? (the default planning level for Receipt is WKPRODLOC).

Is there a way this could be achieved, as changing Base planning levels for the Key figures is a lot.

    1) you can have data on daily level, IF the key figure is on a planning level that contains days. In SAPIBP1 that is mainly used for Demand Sensing. But you can adjust to other key figures as well.

    2) You obviously refer to time series based supply planning. Per SAPIBP1, all relevant KF for that are on technical week level, and hence the lead time is stored on that level as well. Yes, it is a lot of work when you want to change it manually as you need to adjust ALL key figures involved in the planning.

    Plus, your sizing needs to be adjusted as daily buckets is taking much more space than weeks. I cannot recommend that, I'd rather go for orderbased planning instead

    I personally don't know any workaround for the lead time issue
