Inventory Days - Count back method



I'm looking to calculate the inventory days of each product line, using the count back method.


So for example, if i have 1000 units in stock, a bought 300, 30 days ago, 500, 50 days ago, and 300, 105 days ago, the stock ageing would be 105 days.


The data i currently have:

Stock quantity at any given time, calculated via another measure.

A table with all the purchasing history, by product code, and by date.

A date table


The Stock table is linked to the Purchasing data via the Product Code.

Re: Inventory Days - Count back method

So i've made alittle progress.


I've added a measure to calculate a running reserver cumulative quantity - 

Reverse Cumulative Quantity = 
CALCULATE(sum('Purchasing Data'[quan]),

This shows the following:


This shows that 913.44 was purchased on 28 June 2019, and a further 996.48 was purchased on 8 May 2019.


My currently quantity in stock is 1,306.63, therefore want to report the date 8 May 2019.


However, my attempt has been unsuccessful:


Date_Target_Reached = 
IF (
    HASONEVALUE ( Stock_Record[stcode] ),
    VAR Stock_Quantity =
    VAR FirstDateOverTarget =
            'Purchasing Data'[deldate],
            IF (
                [Reverse Cumulative Quantity] >= Stock_Quantity,

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for this.  My running total seems to be working okay.


The element i'm struggling with is to ascertain which date the running total gets breached.


I've tried using LASTNONBLANK but doesn't seems to be working.
