Production forecast consumption

Hello We are about to implement Navision 2.6 I’m trying to figure out how the production forecast is consumed. I have run various scenarios but nothing seems to reduce the quantities in the forecast fields. Does Navision consume the forecast from sales orders or from completed production work orders or…? Or do I have to manually reduce the forecast?

Julian The forecast quantities will never be reduced, it is the net of demand against supply that you will see in your MRP run that will see what should be made, if nothing is suggested you have sufficient stock/po’s/wo’s on the system to cover all demand including your forecast. You should alos note that Navision regards forecasts in previous periods as expired, so it does not take them into consideration. I hope this helps.
