# how can i know Average consumption of an item ?

how can i know it ?

for date range ?

Run the safety stock journal for the item and you will see it. It is the journal in master planning.

did it ,

but the numbers don’t look like average ,

can you tell me how it calculated ?

Hi …

It depends on your date range initially,

The safety stock journal is run for complete months and not partial months, for example, it does not include current month, only a previous full month, default date range is the current month 12 months past up to the previous month. If today is 16/5/2013, then the from date would be 1/5/2012 and to date 30/4/2012 a full 12 months

{1} calculate the monthly sales for the period and averaged
