Forecast overconsumption shows the item & quantity for which you have created a sales order without a forecast. Forecast overconsumption is auto-generated by system to inform you that your forecast numbers are less than the actual demand.

During consumption process, if system cannot find an appropriate forecast entry to consume, system auto-create a new forecast entry with negative quantity to show the over consumption. MRP and other planning engines ignore overconsumption quantity and don’t plan for any material for overconsumed quantity.

Overconsumption is read-only report and cannot be updated directly. You can change the overconsumption quantity by changing either the sales order or the forecast.

You can view overconsumption details by navigating to Forecast & Planning -> Forecast ->Over Consumption
