Is there a way to enable "DP-BOM like" functionality in IBP Demand without inferring IBP Supply ?

Hi,

I got the requirement to generate dependent demand on components based on forecast for finished goods (like we used to do with APO DP BOM functionality).

So far, the only way I see is to send the forecast to supply key figures and then get the output of the S&OP heuristic.

Is there another way to get dependent demand ? What would be your recommendations for this kind of requirements ?

Thanks in advance for your help,

BR

    Hello,

    My thoughts

    Maintain the below master data

    Product (with components)

    Location

    Source ID (i.e BOM, Maintain the Component Co-efficients etc as KF. You can link this BOM to S4 BOM also)

    Key Figures

    Forecast Key figure for Finished Product at a Location

    Dependent Demand = Forecast * Component Co-Efficient

    Write the above calculation for a custom key figure i.e Dependent Demand. This will calculate for all the combinations available in the system, when you display in the Excel, Choose "Supress Null Values"..Then System will accurately display the

    Forecast @ Header level i.e Product level

    Dependent Demand @ Component level

    Hi VenKat,

    Thanks for your valuable input. We will investigate on this approach, complexity being on the integration side then.

    Regards,
