What model system had selected during forecast based Planning

Dear SAP gurus,

I am implementing forecast based planning for spare parts planning for my client. Following are the settings for the material master record.

1. MRP type-VV

2. Forecast model field - empty

3. Initialization indicator - X (Initialization by system)

With above settings I carried out forecast run trial for a set of materials. After the forecast run when I checked the Material master I could see three categories.

1. For some materials system had selected Constant Model D and it had populated D in Forecast model field after forecast run

2. For some materials system had selected Trend Model T and it had populated T in Forecast model field after forecast run

3. For some materials system had not populated any thing in Forecast model field after forecast run, but it had calculated forecast values ?

I have attached the screen shots for all.

I require your valuable inputs on what model system had calculated forecast values for third category i.e., How to know the model ?

Best Regards,

R.Velmurugan.
