          Hi Emm,

          1. Create an item for which the inventory planning method should be reorder point planning along with that provide the minmum order quantity & maximu ordered quantity and the Source type should be supplier.
          2. Navigate to > planning > forecasts > Sets: to define the Forecast Quantity. ( First Forecast Set, then Forecast Line, then Forecast Items > inside this define the forecast quantity.
          3. Define the safety stock by navigating to Planning > Safety Stocks .
          4. Then submit the reorder point planning with parameters as restock – yes and name of your forecast.

          Regards,

            its absolutely no prolem doing all this

            I have the oracle labs saying the same thing..

            But what i dont understand is the bucketed weekly or daiyl forecast
            on what basis does it give the forecast

            if i enter 1000 as quantity and see forecast for next 6 weeks, it shows 100 quantity as forecast every week

            this is confusing

            whaht will cause the forecast to change or the figures to change
