Forecasted Closing Stock Position

Hi,

Im struggling to create DAX measure for a forecasted closing stock position using the start point of the latest stock position, deducting forecasted sales, adding existing open purchase orders and adding forecasted purchase orders to create a forward stock position for each week going forward.

The below Excel example should help to explain:

Hello!

 

Adding here some metrics to calculate last stock position value that might be helpful. The [Last Constant Stock] metric can be used in the metric that will do the additions and subtractions with the other forecast metrics.

 

Sum of Stock Qty = SUM(Table[Stock Qty])

Last Stock = CALCULATE(SUM(Table[Stock Qty]),LASTNONBLANK(Table[Date],[Sum of Stock Qty]))
Last Constant Stock = CALCULATE([Last Stock],ALL(Table[Date]),MAX(Table[Date])>=Table[Date])
 

This blog explains the use of the DAX LASTNONBLANK command very well:
