Forecast not getting reduced by incoming Sales order

Hi All,

We have a product with strategy 20 : Planning with final assembly in APO. I have a forecast for a future date for 10 units. Now I have created a sales order in ECC for 5 units and this is visible in rrp3 along with the above forecast. However the forecast quantity is not reduced as per the sales order quantity. My expectation is once the sales order for 5 units comes into rrp3 then the forecast should get reduced corresponding and should be changed to 5 units from 10 units.

I have checked the consumption mode which is backward-forward and both the forecast and the sales order fall exactly on the same date in future.

Can you please let me know what could be the issue.

Best Regards

lss

    Hello,

    In the material master Always collective requirements have to be choose. The horizon forward/backward of the consumption mode 2 have to cover the desired horizon (Forecast/SO)

    Also check the category of the SO and then check the strategy 20 to see if the SO order category is take in consideration.

    Thanks,

    Regards, Marius

      Hello,

      Please run the SO report /SAPAPO/SDRQCR21 and report /SAPAPO/CSP_CORRECT_FCST (provided by Abhishek.K). The reports will fix any inconsistencies.

      If you still have the same issue please take in consideration the Ada's document (very good and detailed).

      Thanks,

      Regards, Marius
