Last updated on NOVEMBER 14, 2021

Applies to:

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When planning long leadtime items using forecast demand or forecast consumption logic and short lot expiry days then when planning system does not include an option to selectively consider forecast requirements as depleting lot quantities, prior to expiration, then lot expiries creates a false demand. The future forecasts are representative of sales not yet in the planning system, so in practice, these lots will actually be depleted well ahead of lot expiry, so to account for this, forecasts need to also deplete lot quantities, accordingly. For planning horizons such as 1 to 1.5 years future, including forecast of 12 months or more and lot expirations of 180 or 365 days, will show lot expiry in the time series planning horizon, which in practice creates this false demand when forecast is well match to sales demand, historically.

Other planning systems can be configured to reduce lot on hand quantities by future (forecast) independent demand, not just dependent (Sales or Work order) demand.

Request that the JD Edwards R3482 and R3483 to include options that can be configured to reduce lot on hand quantities by future (forecast) independent demand, not just dependent (Sales or Work order) demand.

Such as, on tab 4. Forecast, include an additional Option: Forecast type for lot quantity consumed by forecast ( up to 5 )
