Dependent Location Demand Key figure Issue

Hello team,

Greetings of the Day.

I have loaded values for Dependent Location Demand & Transport (Receipts) Key figures at the Product-Location-Location.From planning level. PFA for reference

But i can't see values for Dependent Location Demand at analytics app whereas Transport receipts are absolutely fine

Question: I have maintained the UOM, Currency & Location-Product related master data accurately, that's why i think, Transport Key figures are accurately popping-up. But how come the Dependent Location Demand values are missing ?

What i'm missing here

Enlighten me, please :)

    Hi Venkat,

    That is correct. It is outbound demand from one location to another location(Ex: DC-> Supplier).

    You can check more details in SAP help-

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_ibp1611/helpdata/en/28/369155bb43292de10000000a44147b/content.htm?frameset=/en/34/234454dafe8b24e10000000a4450e5/frameset.htm¤t_toc=/en/34/234454dafe8b24e10000000a4450e5/plain.htm&node_id=227&show_children=false

    If you are using supply operator to generate dependent location demand, then it should be visible in planning view after operator run(provided it is successful and all quotas are maintained properly). If it is not visible even after successful operator run then check if it has UOM conversion and factor is loaded.

    Thanks,

    Rohit

    Hi Venkat,

    The dependent demand data looks correct and if it has uploaded correctly then it should appear in analytic.

    Can you check if it appears in excel planning view as well?

    You may raise OSS if you do not see anything wrong at your end.

    Thanks,

    Rohit

      Thanks Rohit, for your patient responses...they are really helpful.

      So as suggested by you, i tried to load the data in Excel UI, but still no luck. Its same as Analytics app, displaying no data.

      So i just want to confirm my knowledge on this key figure (Dependent Location Demand).

      A scenario of 1 customer - connected back to 1 DC - again the DC is connected back to 2 manufacturing plants.

      If i post demand (Consensus Demand KF) of 100 on that customer, upon running the optimizer/heuristic, system gives the optimal solution of 90 units can be met(Total Customer Receipts) as per the constraints maintained. PFA

      optimizer-result1.png

      Now to know, how that 90 units demand was distributed across my location, if i list the Dependent Location Demand kf

      optimizer-result2.png

      My understanding: Dependent Location Demand tells " How many units of customer demand will be sent from a Location(say Ship-From location : plant) to a destination location(say Dc) over a period " ? Is it correct or the other way around ?
