Plugin: Purchasing Forecast

From iDempiere en



  • Purchasing Forecast is a forecast table generated from Sales Orders and Sales Forecasts.
  • Think of it as a shortened supply chain, instead of relying on replenishment and stock checks.
  • Generating from Sales Orders can be either via individual Sales, or bulk taken from Forecasts.
  • From Forecasts, they are converted to actual Purhase Orders, done either in bulk or selectively via an InfoWindow.
  • Forecasts take into account, lead time and net quantities needed.
  • Purchase Orders are consolidated according to respective vendors.


  • There is a testing suite that fully tests all the above assumptions.
  • Please refer the PDF guides listed there.


  • You are welcome to test it, contribute feedback, code and changes to improve it, or just vote below to influence more of such work from sponsors.
