Forecast in SAP PS


Hi everyone.

I'm from Brazil and here in the company I work for we are implementing SAP.

I have a doubt about how forecast works in SAP PS.

First of all, I would like to explain how we do forecast in our actual system. Imagine if I planned for a project that I would spend $100 in January and $200 in February. When march comes, I check this project and I realized that I spent $50 in January and $0 in February. At this point the values planneds for this project is wrong. So, since we are in March (in this hypothetical example), I would like to match (make equal) what I really spent with my plan. My plan in january and february must be what I spent. We do it here for about 600 projects and after this project managers will reorganize their plans from March to December and a new cycle begins.

As you can see, in our actual system we do only financial forecast (nothing physical).

Is its possible to do it in SAP PS? Is it possible to make equal what I spent with what I planned?

Best regards, Daniel.
