Editing the Stock CoverageLocate this document in the navigation structure

Here you specify the details for calculating the stock coverage.


The Stock Coverage tab is available only if you have set the Stock Coverage flag on the General tab.


  1. You are in the BW Modeling tools. Go to the Stock Coverage tab page.
  2. Under Stock Type, specify whether the referenced key figure for the stock is an opening stock or a closing stock.
  3. Enter the maximum number of time periods that are taken into account. Note that the more time periods are specified here, the more the runtime will be affected.
  4. Specify a referenced key figure for the stock. This can be either a non-cumulative key figure or a cumulative key figure.
  5. Specify a referenced key figure for the demand.
  6. Specify a time characteristic that specifies the granularity of the stock coverage. This characteristic also serves as the reference characteristic for the exception aggregation. An exception aggregation must always be specified for key figures for stock coverage.
