Item coverage journal (form) [AX 2012]

Click Master planning > Journals > Safety stock.

Use this form to calculate safety stock levels for items according to their item dimensions.

You can select a journal, create journal lines for the items that you want to check, and then calculate proposals for minimum inventory levels. The application creates a proposal after it performs a historical analysis of item issue transactions. Historical analysis is for over a minimum of three months. As soon as you approve a proposal, post it so that it becomes valid as the new minimum inventory level.

The journal can help you maintain the current minimum inventory level—existing item coverage settings—and can help you identify items that have less than the minimum inventory level and could risk being subject to a stock out.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
