APO DP assignment of selections to forecast profiles

93 Views

I am using APO DP release 5.

I have planning characteristics of product group, product, customer and am forecasting at the level of product and customer, where there are thousands of combinations.

Typical product and customer combinations could be:

product 1 at customer A

product 1 at customer B

product 1 at customer C

product 2 at customer A

product 2 at customer C

product 3 at customer B

product 4 at customer D

Analysing the history for these combinations, it is clear that certain combinations eg product 1 at customer A and product 2 at customer C could have forecast strategy x (eg constant model) whereas product 1 at customer B and product 2 at customer A could have forecast strategy y (eg trend model).

My question is:

How can I set up selections of the product/customer combinations so that a selection contains combinations which will be forecast by the same forecast strategy?

Thanks, Bob Austin
