      Hi Manu.

      You have rightly understood the retail cycle.

      Following will explain you better.

      Consumption-based planning is the most common procedure used in retail. In retail, those responsible for requirements planning must ensure that the goods are available for the recipients and consumers. This is achieved by means of various MRP procedures.The stock planner defines a suitable forecasting, MRP, and lot-sizing procedure for specific articles.

      A purchase requisition is generated automatically on the basis of the requirements calculated by the system. The requirements planning result generated by the system can be adjusted manually by the stock planner. The purchase requisition is finally converted to a purchase order, which can then be forwarded to the vendor.

      Four different consumption-based planning procedures are available:

      1.Automatic reorder point planning

      2.Time-phased planning

      3.Combination: time-phased planning with reorder point planning

      4.Forecast-based planning

      Hope it helps.
