This process is used to create distribution curves used in distributing annual forecasts.
This process can be started when these prerequisites are met:
The process includes these activities:
Identify Distribution Pattern
Determine Standard Distribution Curves
Enter Standard Distribution Curves
Identify Distribution Pattern
This activity involves reviewing the demand statistics for a number of items. Based on this review, recurring patterns of demand distribution can be identified. This shows demand distribution patterns over the year.
Determine Standard Distribution Curves
This activity involves determining the number of standard distribution curves required to represent the demand patterns identified.
Enter Standard Distribution Curves
In this activity, the standard distribution curves are entered as described in procedure Create Distribution Curve.
This includes updating distribution curves already entered as described in procedure Update Distribution Curve.
