Click Inventory management > Setup > Forecast > Item allocation keys.

Use this form to create an item allocation key or view existing item allocation keys.

You can use an item allocation key to assign a percentage of an aggregate forecast to individual items or item dimensions. An aggregate forecast is made at the group level. This could be a forecast for an item group or an inventory dimension group, for example.

NoteNote

You must create an item allocation key for an aggregate forecast, because the master scheduling calculations require specific item numbers.
