Disaggregation and the location split table


The business here forecasts at grade/material level but want to avoid using the location split table.  They don't want to forecast at plant level.  My plan is to run statistical forecasting at plant level in a separate POS, then use the result to disaggregate the final forecast at grade level down to plant.

I want to use the a separate POS to ensure CVC's are not required at plant/customer level which would create too much data.

My plan is to:

1, run statistical FC at material grade in POS1

2, make adjustments at material grade in POS1 to create the final forecast

2, run statistical FC at material plant in POS2

4 copy the final FC from POS1 onto material in POS2 to apply disggregation to plant

5. release the forecast from POS2

Do I need to be using proprtional factors via MC8V or is it simpler just to copy the key figure?

Thanks for your help

    if I understood correctly, you will just have to copy the final forecast from POS1 to POS2. However, does the location characteristic do not exists in POS1 whereas it exists in POS2? If so, then this make sense, however, if the location exists in both POS, then the disaggregation will already happen based in the KF settings in the planning area, about disaggregation.

    You can check further details about aggregation and disaggregation in the following HELP:
