Independent Demand Scenario in S&OP

Hi Team,

We have a requirement of INDEPENDENTDEMAND@PERPRODLOC key figure in S&OP on-premise version. Is there a workaround to achieve this?

Is there a way to add demand to DEPENDENTDEMAND key figure by changing the formula of DEPENDENTDEMAND key figure to:


LOCID here will be manufacturing location only.

Supply Algo used: Unconstrained D/S (No Shortage)

Alternate way for this is by creating a dummy customer or setting higher safety stock but we want to keep that as option 2.

Thanks for your inputs.

    Hello Aditya,

    Have you tried creating a KF Independentdemand @perprodloc and then mark it as 'Input for supply planning'. I think this way it should consider it as input along with dependent demand at the manufacturing location.

      NETDEMAND = DEPENDENTDEMAND considering sourcing quota as 1.



      As per the current calculation, PROJECTEDINVENTORY = INDEPENDENTDEMAND

      Below is the example:

      Please guide.
