New ROP Method - LT Usg + x weeks/months of Supply

Client is evaluating different strategies to see the potential impact on inventory holding with various holding methodologies - The current inquiry is LT USG + 1 Month of Supply.  It seems to me this ROP Method would be LT Usage + x weeks of supply, where x is input by the user so they could do "what if" simulations.   Since this would have significant impacts on many of the base calculated values such as avg SOH value, Service Lvl%, etc. - If a client is truly going to see the "impact" of a change like this, it needs to be part of the primary calculations, not a custom DET calculation.

    Hi David, great idea. This can be currently achieved by setting to weeks of supply ROP method, you need to add the lead time to the number of weeks needed to get the desired outcome.
