DAX Patterns - Product results by year after launch date.

Hello Community,

 

I am trying to figure out a way to create a measure(s) to calculate product results by year...following its initial launch date.

 

The reason I have put "DAX Patterns" in the title is because this issue reminds me of something seen in the great DAX Patterns book/website however, I don't see this pattern mentioned in any of the literature. I am currently using the Month-related calculation patterns mentioned here in my model. 

 

Here is a simple example of the situation:

Product 12345678910 launched in March 2018. I want to see sales volume by year, for years 1, 2, and 3. The pattern here would be:

Year 1 = March 2018 to February 2019.

Year 2 = March 2019 to February 2020.

Year 3 = March 2020 to February 2021.

 

I have sales volume results that go beyond year 3 but I do not need to see them - just the first 3 years of sales volume by year. I have thousands of products that have launched anywhere between 10/1/2017 to the current date and their results, so this would need to be dynamic based on launch date.

 

Is there a pattern I can use to achieve the results I want to see?

Thank you!
