Additional FCST/Demand in SNP planning book


My business want to do rough cut capacity planning in simulation version of SNP. We are using SNP.

User wanted to enter some forecast/Demand and check if its feasible (running Heuristic only) and looking at load created.

Current issue:  when we enter the additional forecast (we got additional forecast KF with additional forecast key figure function in SNP planning area and created a different non SAP cateogy ZF (forecast)). .  when we enter values for this KF in planning book, it gets consumed with existing demand (STO/Dep Dem/SO) and we are not able to do the rough cut planning for the additional load.

We have asked user to 2 options.

1. simulation version should be copied with no transaction data. so as to avoid the consumption of this additional forecast. But this is no use, as there is no load (since no transcation data) so its not valid solution as such for what they are looking for

2. double the forecast:  Make sure additional demand should be increased with quantity which is equal to current demand (STO/Dep Dem/SO)).  But that also not feasible for so many product.

So i started on thinking to have another options. to have a new KF which should create extra load (forecast/demand) which should not be consumed or nated out with the current demand.

is there anyway i can achieve the same? have you come across any situation like this earlier in the past?

your suggestion/inputs will be appreciated.

Hope i clear the requirement.

    Hello Pravin,

    For your scenario you have to copy your model/version 000 without transactional data into a new model/version.

    Then you can release the forecast in the newly created model/version. At the end you will have just the forecast in the planning book so the users will be able to enjoy the simulation in this new environment.

    Thanks, Marius

      You basically have 2 options:

      Use additional forecast and apply OSS 437090 to prevent forecast consumption.

      Or use a new key figure with a ATP Category for any demand (requirement) element you want.
