Life Cycle Forecast Not calculated

Hello,

I have issue to obtain forecast calculation with Like Profile management.

Here are the settings I would like to have :

Basic settings Family / Product / Location

Like Profile (model) created with Family OR Product.

For exemple

Family      : Planes

Product      : *

Location     : *

Model         :  Family Cars

I have 24 months of history  for Family Cars, which should be fine.

In this case, I dont have forecast calculation, and the following message :

NOT POSSIBLE TO CARRY OUT THE FORECAST, no HISTORICAL DATA.

I made 2 different tests :

TEST 1


Basic Settings Family / Location

Like Profile (model)


=> Forecast calculated

    TEST 2 :

    Basic Settings : Family / Location / Customer

    Like Profile (model) : Family

    => Forecast Calculated

    (for these 2 tests, My assignment was  Family = Planes and other characteristics = * )

    Why I cannot use my characteristic product for  the basic settings of my life Cycle management ?

    I am blocked ....

    Thanks for your help

    Hi Pierre,

    As per the log you have sent it says CVC combination is not available for replacement.

    Simple Scenario:

    Old products A,B,C

    New Products D,E;F

    Now what the life cycle planning do we will align the history data as follows.

    A data will align to D.( A is source and D is Target)

    B data will align to E.

    and C data will to F.

    For this to be done we need to create CVC's of all products A,B,C,D,E,F in your MPOS.

    For ex ,in your case

    Combination 1

    FAMILY 1010 C24 0 Like profile: DP & ETLOC

    what is your target combination.

    You have define Phase in for your Target combination and phase out Basic combination(i.e. Combination 1).

    I think document has all steps clearly defined.Reply if any concern.

    Regards,
