Backward consumption period

Hello Experts,

Can anyone please tell something about "Bwd Cons. Period" and "Fwd Cons. Period"  as maintained in product master for consumption.? What is its impact?

One confusion: If for example the "Bwd Cons. period" maintained is 60 days. The forecast for May & June is10ea respectively, the sales 15 for may. Is it because of the backward consumption the withdrawal for June is shown as 5 in june?

Thanks in advance

Nisha

    Dear,

    Bwd Cons. period" maintained is 60 days. The forecast for May & June is10ea respectively, the sales 15 for may.

    May 10 and June 10 you have forecast and sales if of 15 in may so system will consume the forecast of may as you have 60 days backward consumption period.If you have another sales order in June or July it will consume the forecast of June.

      Hi Rupesh,

      My objective is that May excess sales should not be consumed in June. In QA, I had made backward consumption and forward consumption as 0, plus I had deleted the old forecast in system using rlcdel instead of md74. Yet it is observed that excess sales in May is consumed in June forecast. Can you suggest some solution.

      Thanking you in advance

      Regards
