We are having trouble understanding forecast consumption. Some of our customers do not provide specific forecast quantities, so we use historical and seasonal information to make educated guesses for future demands. We plug in weekly quantities on each Monday for a selected period of time. For sales orders that happen to fall in with Monday dates, the consumption seems to work fine. However, if the sales order happens to come in on, let’s say Tuesday, the system will not conusume from the forecast for that week. Is there a time-fence somewhere that would is supposed to be set somewhere that would say "look backward x days and/or forward y days and consume from n"?
Thank you in advance,
