Purchase Order Product Recommendation Forecast

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/purchase-workflow Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module extends the purchase product recommendator to predict the increment of the recommendator quantities comparing to past periods.

So when we evaluate a period in the recommendator, this module analyze the same period for the given year of refences a computes the increment for the immediately next period of the same length.

With those increments (or decreases) we can deduce and forecast recommended quantities making a simple linear progression.

An example to illustrate this. I want to forecast sales for April and I'm going to analyze sales on March, but I want to forecast how the recommended products behave from this period to the next one. I also want to analyze, a normal year as 2020 was very irrugular due to pandemy, so I'll use 2019 as my year of reference.

The wizard will take the deliveries from March 2019 and then the deliveries from April 2019 and then it will compute the increment between those two periods.

With that increment, the wizard will analyze the deliveries for March of the present year and then it will apply the increment computed for 2019 and those will be the quantities that we'll be recommending according to the current stock.

In the recommendator:

  1. Choose a period and other filters you may need.
  2. Choose a year of reference. Note that there will only be years from the first customer delivery.
  3. For those products with history in the period corresponding to the year of reference, a computed increment will be shown and the recommended quantities will be computed according to that increment and the current available stock.
