Vendor Forecasting Report
DataChannel’s Vendor Forecasting Report pipeline can be used to request and retrieve forward looking mean, P70, P80, and P90 weekly customer demand forecasts. Data is reported at the ASIN level for the most recent weekly forecast generation date.
Only the most recent forecast data is available. Historical forecast data cannot be requested. The forecasting system produces forecasts for an ASIN at various P-levels, also known as confidence levels. If you are setting a forecasting P-level of .80 ("P80"), it means that there is an 80% probability customer demand will not exceed the weekly forecasted units.
Data availability : Refreshed forecasting data is available 72 hours after the week end (i.e. end of the day Tuesday).
