General

A list of all relevant fields of the planning calibration.

Name Description Calculation
Stock Value Indicator
Displays the largest difference between the calculated values and the current/new values. The corresponding threshold values are stored in the bitmap setup.  
Quantity Indicator
Displays the largest difference between the calculated values and the current/new values. The corresponding threshold values are stored in the bitmap setup.
Source Type Specifies the source type for the Source No. displayed in the “Item No.” field. Can be either “Item” or “Stock Keeping Unit”. When working with Locationfilter or Variant Filter, the system expects inventory data.
Item No. Indicates the number of the item concerned, according to the series of numbers defined.
Variant Code Specifies the variant of the item.
Description Specifies the description of the item to be calibrated.
Description 2 Specifies the description 2 of the item to be calibrated.
Location Code Specifies a code for the location where the items are registered.
Quantity Usage in Period
Calculated usage quantity in the usage period. Total of all item ledger entries within the usage period with the following entry types: sales, consumption and assembly consumption.
In the case of medians, the usage in the period is the median of the individual usage periods.
Workdays The number of workdays within the usage period. The basic calendar from the corresponding location is used as the basis for calculation, if possible. Otherwise, the basic calendar from the company information is used. Without a basic calendar, no planning calibration can be calculated.
In the case of the median, the workdays is the median from the individual usage periods.
Avg. Qty. Usage in Period
Calculated average usage quantity in the usage period. “Quantity Usage in Period” / Workdays
Rounding Precision
Specifies the rounding precision of the item.
Lead Time Calculation Current
The current value of the lead time calculation.
Lead Time Calculation New
The new value of the lead time calculation. This value is written back to the master data when the planning calibration is issued.
Reorder Point Current The current value of the reorder point.
Reorder Point Calculated Reorder point calculated by the planning calibration. Reorder Point = A * (B+C) * D + E
A = Avg. Qty. Usage in Period
B = Lead Time Calculation in days
C = “Inbound Whse. Handling Time” in days
D = (1+Surcharge from demandPlus+ Setup/100%)
E = “Safety Stock Quantity”
Rounded with rounding precision
Reorder Point New The new value of the reorder point. This value is written back to the master data when you issue the planning calibration.
Reordering Policy Current
Indicates the current reordering policy
Reorder Quantity Current
The current value of the reorder quantity.
Reorder Quantity Calculated
The calculated value of the reorder quantity. For the exact calculation of the reorder quantity see Inventory Costs
Reorder Quantity New
The new value of the reorder quantity. This value is written back to the master data when the planning calibration is issued
Safety Stock Quantity Current
The current value of the safety stock quantity.
Safety Stock Quantity New
The new value of the safety stock quantity. This value is written back to the master data when the planning calibration is issued.
Maximum Inventory Current The current value of the maximum inventory.
Maximum Inventory Calculated Calculated maximum inventory level by the planning calibration.
Maximum Inventory New The new value of the maximum inventory. This value is written back to the master data when you issue the planning calibration. Reorder Point * (1 + Surcharge from demandPlus+ Setup/100%)
Rounded with rounding precision
Minimum Order Quantity Current Defines the current minimum allowable quantity for an item order proposal
Maximum Order Quantity Current Specifies the current maximum allowable quantity for an item order proposal
Order Multiple Current Defines the current parameter used by the planning system to modify the quantity of planned supply orders
Safety Lead Time Current Defines the current date formula to indicate a safety lead time that can be used as a buffer period for production and other delays.
Replenishment System Current Indicates the current replenishment system.
Time Bucket Current Specifies the current time period that defines the recurring planning horizon used with Fixed Reorder Qty. or Maximum Qty. reordering policies.
Include Inventory Includes inventory in the projected available balance when replenishment orders are calculated.
Rescheduling Period Current Defines the current period within which any suggestion to change a supply date always consists of a Reschedule action and never a Cancel + New action.
Lot Accumulation Period Current Defines the current period in which multiple demands are accumulated into one supply order when you use the Lot-for-Lot reordering policy.
Dampener Period Current Specifies the current period of time during which you do not want the planning system to propose to reschedule existing supply orders.
Dampener Quantity Current Specifies the current dampener quantity to block insignificant change suggestions for an existing supply, if the change quantity is lower than the dampener quantity.
Overflow Level Current Specifies the current quantity you allow projected inventory to exceed the reorder point, before the system suggests to decrease supply orders.
Avg. Stock Value Current
Shows the current average stock value. a) Reordering Policy = Fixed Reorder Qty.
(Safety Stock Qty.+ Reorder Qty. Current / 2) * Unit Cost
b) Reordering Policy = Maximum Qty.
(Safety Stock Qty.+ (Maximum Inventory Current – Safety Stock Qty.) / 2) * Unit Cost
Avg. Stock Value Calculated
Displays the calculated average stock value. a) Reordering Policy = Fixed Reorder Qty.
(Safety Stock Qty.+ Reorder Qty. Calculated / 2) * Unit Cost
b) Reordering Policy = Maximum Qty.
(Safety Stock Qty.+ (Maximum Inventory Current – Safety Stock Qty.) / 2) * Unit Cost
Avg. Stock Value New
Displays the new average stock value. a) Reordering Policy = Fixed Reorder Qty.
(Safety Stock Qty.+ Reorder Qty. New / 2) * Unit Cost
b) Reordering Policy = Maximum Qty.
(Safety Stock Qty.+ (Maximum Inventory New – Safety Stock Qty.) / 2) * Unit Cost
No. of Orders Current
Indicates how often the reorder quantity is ordered, based on the current reorder quantity. “Quantity Usage in Period” / “Reorder Qty. Current”.
Rounded up to whole orders.
No. of Orders Calculated
Indicates how often the reorder quantity is ordered, based on the calculated reorder quantity. “Quantity Usage in Period” / “Reorder Qty. Calculated”.
Rounded up to whole orders.
No. of Orders New
Indicates how often the reorder quantity is ordered, based on the new reorder quantity. “Quantity Usage in Period” / “Reorder Qty. New”.
Rounded up to whole orders.
No. of Orders placed
The no. of orders placed during the usage period. When you drill down, the corresponding purchase orders are displayed. The same functionality can be found in the item card. All active and archived purchase orders within the consumption period. In the case of the median, the number of orders is the median of the individual usage periods.

Calendar Days
The no. of calendar days in the usage period. In case of the median, the number of calendar days is the median of the individual usage periods.
Starting Date
Specifies the starting date for the currently selected period. In the case of the median, the starting date is the earliest start date of the usage periods.
Ending Date Specifies the ending date for the currently selected period. In the case of the median, the ending date is the earliest start date of the usage periods.
Inbound Whse. Handling Time
Indicates the time required to add items to the available inventory after the items have been booked as “delivered”. The calculation basis is the corresponding location. Without Stock Keeping Unit, the location from the company information applies. If no suitable location was found, the inventory setup applies.

Name Description Calculation
Checked User can indicate, that the line has been checked. All indicators are green.  
No. of Periods with Consumption Shows the number of periods with consumption.

Period Lines

Name Description Calculation
Active Shows whether the line is active or not. If the calculated values are transferred to planning calibration, the corresponding line is active. If there is more than one usage period, the median is always active in the calculation.  
Type Specifies whether the line was calculated based on the period or the median.  

Shortcut Fields

It is possible to transfer fields from the item table or Stock Keeping Units to all areas of the planning calibration. You can find the setup either in the Assisted Setup or in the demandPlus+ setup.
