How to Control the MAX_SALES_DATE When Collecting Future "Demand" (Doc ID 1467517.1)

Oracle Demantra Demand Management - Version 7.3.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Users are purposely bringing in future "Demand". As a result, the ep_load process is setting max_sales_date into the future.

This results in Items being set as “dead” (prediction_status = 99), even though they have historical sales within the last 90 days (dying_time = 90 days) of the Data Collection date.
As a result, Demantra engine is not generating forecast for these Items.
