Cumulative Quantity Management

Resetting the cumulative quantities in SAP

Automotive manufacturers often reset their cumulative quantities in goods receipt to zero at a fiscal year change. Suppliers with fiscal year changes that differ in time often have to make time-consuming manual corrections in their own systems as a result. This is because the SAP standard only provides inadequate support for these processes - but fortunately it can be extended.

An employee checks metrics on two different monitors with dashboards.

Define fiscal year change individually per customer

Are cumulative quantities an integral part of your forecast delivery schedules? Then you probably know the problem when your customer resets the figures to zero at the fiscal year change. This is because you then have to manually rework your SAP system to compensate for this deviation from your figures. The SAP standard is not able to support you in this.

However, the problem can be solved with the help of SAP-based add-ons. These can be used directly integrated in SAP and can be set up quickly. With the WSW extension SPEEDI Fiscal Year Change, you can manage cumulative quantities more easily.
