Formular for calculating inventory cover required.
Eg if forcast sales is 300units and I have 10 units in stock my cover in weeks would be 52/(300/10). However I want to know how many units I need to have a cover of 6 weeks.

ok i really don't understand why are you using an if statement

All you need to do is use this formula to find out the number of units needed to cover x number of weeks

lets assume that the sales forcast is in cell B3 and the weeks to cover is in cell B9 then the number of units needed is

= (B3*B9) /52

I would also suggest rounding to the higher digit

so it would look like this:

=ROUNDUP((B3*B9)/52,0)

I am also attaching a sample file Here

If you need any further assistance just ask. A bonus is highly appreciated

Hi Ehab,

Thank you for thatesponse but what I'm trying to get to is if I want 6 weeks cover and as a result of stock count I have stock for only 2 weeks how much do I need to order to make up my 6 week requirement. That's why I was trying to use the if statement.

Programmer: ehabtutor, Computer Software Engineer replied 8 years ago

ok here is your new formula:

=ROUNDUP(((B3*B9)/52)-(B3*F4/52),0)

You can find the sample here

you can now change all the factors and see how this applies to the number of units needed

If you need any further assistance don't hesitate to ask

Regards,

EhabTutor
