SAP R3 Coverage Profiles


I am running into a problem in regards to setting up coverage profiles.

The industry I am a part of has extremely variable forecasts (i.e. Month 1- 100, Month 2, 13000, Month 3- 100, Month 4 -100).

I am trying to set a coverage profile that carries a safety stock in terms of Days Supply. For example, I want to carry 30 Days.

Unfortunately, when I get into the 3rd or 4th week of the large month it still counts the entire period in the ADR calculation. This drives in unnessary inventory.

Is there anyway around this in R3? Or is this something that can only be addressed in APO?

    Hi Tim,

    I think that if you you will move to work with WEEKS as your forecast period (instead of months), it will work better in respect to what you are looking for. Test it!

      I've come a long way! Thanks for your help.

      I've addressed the weeks issue.

      There is one more tweak that would help me get in the optimal position, and I'm not sure if it's possible.

      W1 1000

      W2 100

      W3 100

      W4 100

      W5 100

      Ideally I end week 1 with ((100100100+100/28)*28) = 400 because at the end of the week that is a true 28 days of forward coverage.

      My current envrionment is calculating the coverage as follows ((1000100100+100/28)*28) = 1300. How do I get SAP to not count the current week (1000 in W1) in the ADR calculation? Any idea?
