    Hi Pavan,

    Spare Parts Planning is completely different concept from standard APO method of Demand Planning (DP).

    • Planning services are mostly performed using TSDM rather than Livecache.
    • SPP is not Traditional APO DP.

    For Demand Planning in SPP you need to do the following settings in short.

    • Configure Demand Capture and Management (Predefined DSOs and Cubes were delivered by SAP to which you've to load your histories) no where you'll create Planning Area , Planning Books, MPOS etc as you do in Traditional DP.
    • Configure General/Basic Settings for SPP
    • Configure Forecast related settings like Service Profiles, General Settings,AMS, Initialization, smoothing factors, Phase In Phase Out --- This will replace the Master Forecast Profile, Promotion, LifeCycle planning etc in Traditional DP.
    • Configure PSM Services.
    • Execute Demand Capture --> Realignments -->Forecasitng using PSM engines.

    Each single concept is vast, Hope i'd given a heads up somewhat.
