How to disaggregate demand of a product group into each product in supply review?

Hi experts,

Can you tell me the way to disaggregate demand of a product group into each product in supply review? For instance, assuming that demand of a product group called iPhone10 is 100 in a region, I want to disaggregate the demand into each product such as iPhone10-red and iPhone10-white respectively, depending on the pre-defined ratio. I assume that setting of how much to supply by each product can be done by manually in Excel, but I wanna know the automatic way. please help me, thanks.

    Hello Kenta

    As per your requirement you need to do the following.

    1) Lets say KF1 is where you are giving the demand 100. First thing is to make sure that the base planning level of KF1 is set at PRODLOC level so that at whatever level you input demand it will get dissaggreated to the product level. Use the dissagg options as custom.

    2) then lets say KF2 is the KF based on which you want the demand to be dissaggregated. Make sure that KF2 is a stored KF and then in KF1 in the dissagg expression box put the name of KF2 like 'KF2' this so that the value in KF1 gets distributed based on the proportional values maintained in KF2.

    But if your KF1 is having the base planning level at product group then you need to create a new KF with base PL with PRODLOC and use copy operator to copy value from KF1 to the new KF and then the same above steps apply.capture.png

    Hello Kenta,

    I would suggest to create a new stored Key Figure let's say "ProductRatio" to hold the ratio at Product Level & upload the ratio values into this key figure

    Also Demand key figure do the below configuration-

    Disaggregation Mode Equal Distribution

    Proportionality Other Key Figure - Stored Values

    Key Figure for Proportionality - ProductRatio

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
