The demand parameters differ depending on the type of demand that you specify in the Demand Type column of the Demand table.

For Periodic demand, the parameters are:
For Historic demand, the parameters are:

To edit the Periodic demand parameters

  1. Double-click the Parameters cell to open the dialog box.
  2. Specify the values of the  Order interval and Quantity parameters.
    Both values can be either fixed or stochastic (defined by a probability distribution). For details on providing fixed or stochastic values refer to this section.
To edit the Historic demand parameters
  1. Double-click the Parameters column cell to open a dialog box.
  2. Click Add to create a new record with the Date and Quantity values. A new table row will appear.
  3. Click the Date cell to activate the edit box and specify the date using the date chooser.
