How to talk about BW inventory to business users


I have read the how to paper on Inventory and am ready to implement. The users at my client have no exposure to BW and this is pretty much the first BW implementation. So, the scope is standard business content queries.

For Inventory though, we are providing them the composite model : non cumulative plus snapshot.

How do I talk to the users about non cumulative key figures and opening stock and calculating back the movements in business terms? Also how do I explain the snapshot model in parallel?

I am just about wrapping my mind around the How to Inventory..document.

How do we implement a couple months of retention and how do we delete the previous months data?

Many open questions...any answers would be greatly appreciated.
