With Graphical Inventory Profile, you get a very flexible view of your inventory profile for specific items. For instance here on a sales order line, where I would like to see the graphical profile for the item, it’s possible to select a lot of different parameters in here.

So if I’m just selecting like this, item number 1000, location basic, it will display the inventory profile with those filters. And it has the lowest inventory of minus six.

Whereas if I view the inventory profile again, and I’d like maybe to see only release sales orders and release purchase orders, which is some of the parameters I could set up, and I view it again, I have another inventory profile. So thereby it’s possible to see with all different kinds of parameters.

When I view the graphical profile, I could include forecast for instance, to see how it looks with forecast, and the blue line will be the line including forecast, the red one will be the line not including forecast, and thereby I can see the difference in the overview. I could also view including planning lines as an example.

So if you use requisition worksheets or planning worksheets, and we’ll take the same item. And since the item is not here, I’ll need to run it, the item number 1000.

So if we need to compare like this, I’ll just enter it manually. And maybe I want to see all my sales orders this time, both including forecast and including planning lines, like this, I can see the forecast. And if I deselect the forecast, I can see the inventory, including planning lines.

Now there’s no planning lines in this journal. Therefore the inventory would be the same. But if I had plannings line in the journal, like on the first line in here, I could see the difference in the graphical profile.

So the point is that you can view the graphical profile in all different scenarios you would like to view.

In this example, we’ll have the forecast and the planning lines that are different in here. And it’s possible to use this tool to explain what the inventory will look like and when the item will get unstuck.
