Roberto-Is your question how to develop the forecast or how to incorporate the forecast into demand? My understanding is that the engine inside of MRP is looking at all demand sources for the product (orders, production, transfer) so it should be capturing the transfer orders. I took a quick look in 2017 and the options for building the forecast are listed as Sales Item, Component, or both. Does anyone know if the Sales Item includes transfers? Does NAV consider that a sale?Second, if you are asking NAV to combine the two, then apply a growth factor you will have to export to Excel, apply the factor, then import it back in. Your partner should be able to help with that routine. Microsoft has it setup out of the box for budgets, but not forecasts.Great question. I am certainly following this one to learn more.
Used to calculate a requisition plan for items and stock keeping units set up for replenishment by a purchase or transfer order. The batch job performs the following functions:
Inventory + Scheduled Receipts + Planned Receipts – Gross Requirement
Also used to present a plan based on net requirements in the requisition worksheet as requisition lines accompanied by action messages.
The Calculate Plan pulls information from the Replenishment Tab of the Item or Stock keeping Unit Cards:

The Replenishment System field determines what type of document will be created in order to meet demand. The options are:
The Lead Time Calculation field is the date formula for the amount of time that it takes to replenish the item. For Purchase Orders, the Order Date + Lead Time Calculation = Planned Receipt Date. For Production Orders, NAV only uses the lead time calculation if the item lacks a routing. The calculation is the Starting Date + Lead Time Calculation = Ending Date.
The first two fields are applicable to all documents created from the Requisition Worksheet, and the headings in bold pertain to information needed for the specific types of documents. The Requisition Worksheet will only create Purchase and Transfer Orders.
